Discover The EVA Expand Project At Venditalia 2015 http://www.hydrocarbons21.com/news/view/6309 http://www.hydrocarbons21.com/news/view/6309 2015-04-20 10:08:51 article <div>The vending industry can take advantage of the opportunity to discover the interesting European Vending Association (EVA) Expand Project during the upcoming Venditalia trade show to be held in Milan, Italy. Being the largest international vending exhibition, Venditalia 2015 is the perfect time and place to exhibit, communicate and explain the project objectives to the widest possible gathering of key industry actors.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>&lsquo;Expand&rsquo; aims to develop a new low capacity expansion valve to increase the efficiency of cooling systems in chilled vending machines and commercial refrigeration systems operating with natural gases. &nbsp;It was created as a result of funding awarded under the European Commission 7th Framework Programme for research and technical development, which specifically targets competitiveness of small and medium enterprises.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>The new EU F-Gas Regulation prohibits the use of two of the most commonly used refrigerant gases in vending machines &ndash; HFC R404a and HFC R134a &ndash; from 2020 and 2022 respectively. &nbsp;The vending industry therefore needs to transition to natural refrigerant gases, such as CO<sub>2</sub>. Although small cooling systems using CO<sub>2</sub> are currently available; they are generally complex and prohibitively expensive. The overall Expand project objective is therefore to provide an efficient and cost effective method for the industry to make this required shift.</div> The ATMOsphere Europe 2015 Summary Report: Market well prepared for widespread uptake of natural refrigerants http://www.hydrocarbons21.com/knowledge/view/1764 http://www.hydrocarbons21.com/knowledge/view/1764 2015-04-20 00:00:00 paper The Report encompasses all the very latest natural refrigerant trends in and around Europe.
