Epta at the Virtual Trade Show 2020

Epta once again proves its commitment to sustainable development by becoming Premium Exhibitor of the Virtual Trade Show: the first totally virtual fair dedicated to natural refrigerants, promoted by the ATMOsphere; a division of Shecco, live online from 1 to 2 September 2020.

A truly unique event which will be live for 24 hours, will travel “around the world” commencing in Europe and following all time zones will continue to the Middle East and Africa, followed by North, Central and South America, finally drawing to a close on 2 September in Asia Pacific. A “virtual tour” without precedents for the cold industry, which has the ambitious goal of uniting a public of experts of global excellence, to share the most interesting aspects of cutting-edge technologies for natural refrigeration.

Epta has always been ready to respond, with its vast range of products and services, the continued drive to make stores of any size and in any climate condition ever more energy efficient. 100% of the remote cabinets from the Group’s brands are already powered by CO2 R744; a natural refrigerant with an admirable GWP of 1. Finally, Epta has long since continued its renewal of its ranges of plug-ins and cabinets with incorporated units from all its brands with versions powered by propane R290, or other gases with lower GWP.

The event will also be an opportunity to illustrate the Life-C4R – Carbon 4 Retail Refrigeration project by Epta and co-funded by the European Union and the goals already reached.

It is a three-year plan, which will end in 2021, originally created with the aim of raising the awareness of all players in the sector to the use of increasingly efficient solutions and demonstrating how it is possible to completely replace HCFC and HFC refrigerants with transcritical CO2,anywhere in the world. At the heart of Life-C4R, there is the patented FTE 2.0 Full transcritical Efficiency system and the subcooler ETE Extreme Temperature Efficiency technology, identified by the European Union as deserving of special attention thanks to its combined efficiency and simplicity.

To participate in the inaugural Virtual Trade Show simply access the dedicated portal https://atmo-marketplace.com: an easy-to-navigate and visually appealing website, which will allow “visitors” to cross the exhibition rooms and participate in webinars and networks, recreating the feeling of a physical event. During the live event, the exhibitors will be able to interact with the participants through real-time chat and audio and video functions.
