Call for Technology Case Studies - ATMOsphere America 2013

By Janet Thompson, Jan 25, 2013, 11:29 2 minute reading

Case Studies are now being accepted for the two Technology Case Study Sessions at ATMOsphere America 2013. Studies should focus on the latest product innovations, developments, and efficiency results in the field of natural refrigerants in/for North America. Deadline: 31 March 2013.

Application areas:
  • Commercial & Light-Commercial Refrigeration
  • Industrial Refrigeration
  • Air Conditioning (Mobile & Stationary)
  • Heat Pumps
  • Transport
  • New areas of application

Special attention will be given to:
  • Type of refrigerant (CO2, ammonia, hydrocarbons, air, water)
  • Cost-efficiency of the whole life cycle
  • Geographic area (North America)

Submission criteria:

Case studies should focus on completed or ongoing projects, best practices, and lessons learned in the field of natural refrigerants in North America. The study should be a practical summary of an improved practice, rather than a formal research paper. Ideally, the study will provide and analyze real life results relating to the energy efficiency and reliability of a HVAC+R technology using one or multiple natural refrigerants.

Main criteria is that the technology is either applied in North America or has clear potential to be used in North America.

Should you wish to contribute your input on the above-mentioned topics, you are invited to send an abstract that satisfies the following criteria:
  • Sustainable: The case study should address the potential of natural refrigerant technology (CO2, ammonia, hydrocarbons, water, and air)
  • Replicable: Lessons learned that could be applied to other projects with ideas on how to implement these in other countries
  • Original: Technology innovations, research results that have not been shown elsewhere, new fields of application etc.
  • Tangible: Examples of real life installations and demonstration projects, laboratory testing with tangible results etc.

Elements that should be included:
  • Efficiency analysis: analysis of how the refrigerant influences the Coefficient of Performance (COP), comparison of different systems or parameters, etc.
  • Cost analysis: energy costs, operational costs, planning and installation costs, life-cycle costs

Author content and format guidelines:
  1. In your case study submission, please include:
  2. Your full name, organization, and email address
  3. Case study title
  4. An abstract
  5. Keywords
  6. Relevance for the North American market

Presentation time

Presenters need to plan for a 12 minutes presentation + 3 min Q&A.

Please submit your case study directly to the organiser via email to: and indicate "ATMO America" in the subject line and in the case study itself.

Deadline Case Study Submissions is 31 March, 2013.
