Jürgen Fischer, President, Danfoss Cooling, said: “Even though countries have different timeframes, switching to more climate-friendly refrigerants is a global concern. The HVACR sector can make important contributions even now with energy efficient and lower-GWP equipment, and it’s here that Danfoss can make a significant impact. We believe that by providing industry expertise, product qualifications, in-depth training, and testing facilities, to our customers and business partners, we can all keep moving in the same direction. Refrigerant Week is a big part of that.”

Ziad Al Bawaliz, Regional President for Turkey, Middle East and Africa, Danfoss, said: “Refrigerants are a hot-button issue for the Middle East at the moment, especially with the race to freeze levels in the region by 2028 – it is our hope that we are able to help facilitate this process for all attendees. We are looking forward to engaging with even more companies, countries and individuals, from around the world, during Refrigerant Week 2018.”
