NATURAL REFRIGERANTS FASTER TO EUROPE: Already for the third time, this international and interactive workshop on Natural Refrigerants will be organised in Brussels from Tuesday, 11 October to Wednesday, 12 October. This year the main focus will be on Europe: 180 policy and industry experts will come together to discuss strategies and concepts to bring natural refrigerants faster to Europe and beyond and also prove the business case for natural refrigerants. The ATMOsphere Europe 2011 programme will be a unique mix of European policy sessions, including the new F-Gas regulation and Ecodesign Directive and what it means for Natural Refrigerants as well as panel debates with European retailers and international consumer brands and technology case study sessions.

Besides enough space and time for networking, a reception and gala dinner will be organised for all participants on Tuesday night. To make ATMOsphere Europe a truly interactive event, moderated group discussions will accompany each session, networking meeting rooms will be available for individual meetings and the ATMOsphere online community will be launched this summer to discuss before, during and after the event.


This year's programme is filled with policy sessions on F-Gases and the Ecodesign Directive, end-user interactive panel discussions, technology case studies and an extended workshop concept. More concretely, this includes:
• Policy session about F-gases: The new EU F-Gas Regulation - What’s in it for Natural Refrigerants?
• Policy session about Ecodesign Directive: Developments and their impact on Natural Refrigerants
• EU position for the Post-Kyoto commitment period
