The Epta Group is among the stars of the 25th International Congress of Refrigeration IIR, which will take place in the exceptional setting of Montreal, the city where the historical protocol was signed in 1987 that has contributed to determining the central environmental policies worldwide.

The event is organised every four years and brings together industrial realities, scientific communities and international researchers, to discuss and exchange ideas on the more recent technological developments and product innovations in refrigeration, air conditioning and sustainable construction.

"Refrigeration for wellness and future prosperity": this is the guiding thread of the ICR  Congress 2019, which proposes to focus on several of the “hottest” themes of recent years, namely energy saving and efficiency, food supply and wellbeing, reduction in global warming and protection of the ozone layer.

Maurizio Orlandi, IC Manager, Stefano Trabucchi and Rosmery Serrao Mendes, IC Engineer in Epta, will take part in the event where the Group, Silver Sponsor of the event, will promote the project Life C4R – Carbon 4 Retail Refrigeration, funded by the European Union in accordance with grant agreement n° LIFE 17 CCM/IT/000120.

The goal of this initiative is to define a new standard for natural refrigeration in Retail, thanks to the FTE Full Transcritical Efficiency technology, showing that it is possible to completely replace HCFC and HFC with CO2 transcritical, in any climate or market condition.

Participation in ICR2019 is an important opportunity for Epta to show world famous experts, including many European representatives, the key features of the C4R project. The plan, which covers the 2018-2021 period, involves two pilot installations in Italy and replicas in Romania, Spain and in the rest of the EU, with the goal of validating the theoretical data relating to the performance of the FTE.
