EU controls on the use of refrigerants in commercial catering and retail environments is set to form the major talking point at the upcoming Air Conditioning & Refrigeration (ACR) show in Birmingham.
Organisers of the three-day affair have confirmed that expert speakers will debate the issue in depth and provide updates on the legislative changes currently underway. Equipment users will also be given advice on how to protect themselves and their businesses ahead of any law changes.
The introduction of legislation governing minimal energy performance standards on refrigeration products, as well as other commercial catering equipment, is poised to impact all businesses in the food and drink, catering and hospitality industries.
As well as getting up to speed on developments in this key area, visitors to the ACR show will be able to see the new technologies being introduced to fill the gap.
A series of seminars has also been planned featuring industry executives from a number of large corporations, including Bob Arthur, refrigeration technologist at Marks and Spencer.
Brands signed up to the exhibution include Gram, Hoshizaki, Hubbard and Teknic Refrigeration.
The ACR show runs from March 13th-15th at the Birmingham NEC.
