An impressive number of companies are this year presenting their NH3 solutions at Chillventa 2010, the leading HVAC&R event. Among them, the team behind will be present with an own booth, while the German Federal Environment Agency will hold a one-day workshop on natural refrigerants in commercial refrigeration.

More than 850 exhibitors from all around the world will showcase product innovations for the refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation and heat pump industry at this year’s Chillventa trade fair to be held between 13 and 15 October 2010 in Nürnberg, Germany.

Meet at Hall 1, Booth 1-145

Among the companies present, the team behind will be exhibiting for the first time at the event. Between 13 and 15 October 2010, you can find us at Booth 1-145, Hall 1 to discuss the means through which we support the worldwide use of ammonia refrigerant in cooling, refrigeration and heating.
