Eureka 2016

CAREL will be a Diamond Sponsor at the “EUREKA 2016: Heating, Cooling & Ventilation: Sustainable technologies for a better life” conference, to be held in The Hague on 13 December.
This event, organised by The European Partnership for Energy and the Environment (EPEE) and The European Ventilation Industry Association (EVIA), is intended to demonstrate the impact of the HVAC/R industry on the European Union’s energy and climate goals, and highlight the potential, attractiveness and innovative nature of this industry.


The themes

The panel and break-out sessions will focus on the cold chain and buildings through the following themes:


The impact of the new F-Gas rules in Europe and beyond

Indoor Air Quality 

Increasing political awareness on indoor air quality & thermal comfort 

Food waste

The role of refrigeration in reducing food waste  


Driving energy efficiency in buildings


Why has a manufacturer of electronic components decided to sponsor this event? 
"The answer lies in the strategy that CAREL has adopted since it was founded”, explaines Biagio Lamanna, HVAC/R Knowledge Center Manager, who will make the introductory speech at the conference.
