Cooling champions: cool careers for a better world
On this occasion, under the slogan “Cooling champions: cool careers for a better world”, with the aim of inspiring students and professionals to meet the challenges of this vital sector through their careers in refrigeration and air conditioning industry.
Approximately 15 million people in the world are working in the refrigeration sector. In terms of installations, there are about 3 billion refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump systems in operation worldwide.
The sector offers a wide range of career opportunities. It is imperative to implement refrigeration technologies that ensure sustainability and respect for the envaronent with climate change as required by international agreements on ozone and climate protection.
How does evaporative cooling contribute?
Evaporative cooling leaves a small water footprint since almost 95% of cooling water is recirculated. Moreover, it is a technology that uses water as a refrigerant, so there are no CO2 emissions.
In addition, technological advances, awareness of a proper facilities maintenance as well as restrictions set by regulations, make evaporative cooling a totally safe, effective and efficient option.
