Epta platinum sponsor of ICCC Nantes 2020

Epta, with its project Life-C4R Carbon 4 Retail Refrigeration, is Platinum Sponsor of the sixth edition of the IIR International Conference on Sustainability and the Cold Chain 2020.

It is a biennial event, supported by the International Institute of Refrigeration and recognised globally as one of the most advanced events in the cold chain. Since its initial launch, the event has had the ambitious goal of bringing together the international public of experts, researchers and industrialists with all the latest news and key technological trends in refrigeration, air-conditioning and heat pump segments. A moment of information, sharing, and exchange, to promote an increasingly sustainable culture in the HVAC&R sector and aim at the growth of the entire sector.

Among the topics at the centre of the debate of this sixth edition of ICCC 2020 in Nantes from 26 to 28 August will be, for example, food quality and safety in the cold chain, energy efficiency, new eco-design of equipment, refrigerants of the future and technological innovations.

We are firmly convinced that “knowing” is now more than ever the key to making “sustainable” choices in any field. This is why we are so proud to sponsor this sixth edition of the ICCC 2020, whose aims are perfectly in line with the philosophy behind the EPTA Life-C4R project, co-funded by the EU, designed to accelerate the implementation of the highly efficient transcritical CO2 natural refrigeration systems”, comments Francesco Mastrapasqua, Project Leader Life-C4R of Epta. He continues, “This is a three-year plan, which will end in 2021, created precisely to raise awareness among the scientific community, component suppliers and all players in the retail world to the use of increasingly efficient solutions and show how HCFC and HFC refrigerants can be completely replaced by transcritical CO2, anywhere in the world.” He concludes, “Our participation as a sponsor demonstrates further evidence of the responsible approach of the Company, also in view of the great impact of the HVAC&R sector on global energy consumption.
