Chillventa – the exhibition for energy efficiency, heat pumps and refrigeration
Innovation & trends from the energy efficiency – heat pumps – refrigeration sector in Nuremberg from 16 - 18 October 2018
Whether compressors, heat exchangers, fans or systems, the industry, wholesale trade, professional associations and research meet at Chillventa to discuss the most important questions on refrigeration, ac & ventilation and heat pumps.
Be there and meet the experts at this leading exhibition: Chillventa – the exhibition for the energy efficiency – heat pumps – refrigeration sector starts on 16 October 2018 in Nuremberg.
The multiyear study by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) was intended to identify the best candidates for future use as air-conditioning refrigerants with the lowest impact on the climate. However, the study found no ideal refrigerant that combined low global warming potential with other desirable performance and safety features, such as being both non flammable and nontoxic. The authors of the report published in the journal Nature Communications, wrote that "It is highly unlikely that any better-performing fluids will be found, and unknown risks associated with the lesser-known fluids may further reduce the list."

Danfoss has extended its line of fully equipped condensing units, designed for low temperature and medium temperature outdoor applications. This line of high quality condensing units is manufactured in the United States. The new condensing unit features microchannel heat exchangers for high energy efficiency, low refrigerant charge, and easy maintenance, as well as scroll compressors for quiet operation.
A new report issued by the Appliance Standards Awareness Project (ASAP) and the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) says that households save hundreds on overall utility bills due to appliance standards. The report details average household savings for all 50 states and the nation’s capital in four categories: household utility bill savings; electricity savings; natural gas and oil savings; and water savings. The top 10 states for each are ranked. Consumers in Hawaii save the most on overall household utility bills. The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) acts as a catalyst to advance energy efficiency policies, programs, technologies, investments, and behaviors.
