ATMO MAC Summit call for case studies

Call for Natural Refrigerant Case Studies for ATMO MAC Summit 2024 × TU Berlin in September

The deadline for submissions from OEMs and suppliers in the automotive, bus, truck and train sectors is June 14.

ATMOsphere, publisher of NaturalRefrigerants.com, has issued a call for case studies on natural refrigerant-based mobile air-conditioning (MAC) and heat pump technologies to be presented at the ATMO MAC Summit 2024 × TU Berlin, which will take place in Berlin on September 12–13.

To be considered, case studies must include real-life natural refrigerant applications – with a focus on CO2 (R744) and propane (R290) – and be relevant to air-conditioning or heat pump applications in the automotive, bus, truck or train sectors.

Case studies must be submitted by June 14 using the template provided. Details on how to submit a case study can be found here.

Submissions must include reference to the application’s sustainability, replicability, originality and tangibility, and preference will be given to case studies that include efficiency and cost analyses.

Case studies could be presented by OEMs or suppliers and could examine a range of topics, including reversible air-conditioning and heat pump systems, refrigerant charge reduction strategies, thermal management in battery cooling, implementation of heat and work recovery, system controls and safety.

Each presentation will be allocated a maximum of 12 minutes followed by three minutes for audience questions.

Scaling up NatRef solutions

The two-day conference is ATMOsphere’s first event to focus exclusively on air-conditioning and heat pump systems for mobile applications. It is hosted in partnership with Technische Universität Berlin (TU Berlin)’s Department of Heat Transfer and Conversion and will take place on TU Berlin’s campus.

According to ATMOsphere, the conference will “offer a unique opportunity to engage and exchange insights with industry professionals.” Participants will include manufacturers from across the transport sector, suppliers and policymakers, as well as academics and R&D experts.

“There are already commercial applications available today for cars, buses, trucks and trains using either CO2 or propane,” Marc Chasserot, CEO and Co-Founder of ATMOsphere, told NaturalRefrigerants.com. “To accelerate and scale up the adoption of these solutions, we have created the annual ATMO MAC Summit in partnership with [TU] Berlin.”

The event program will feature sessions that cover a range of topics, including research, market and technology trends, and two panel discussions – one on policy developments and one on OEM experiences.

The conference will also include several networking opportunities.

Registration for the summit is now open, and an early bird discount of €150 is available until May 23. OEMs, academics and government representatives can attend the summit for free, and there is a 50% discount for confirmed speakers.
