EcoThermics Corporation, a pioneer in the natural refrigerant segment of the HVACR industry, announced today plans to hold a press conference on July 14th in conjunction with the 13th International Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Conference, the 20th International Compressor Engineering Conference and the 1st International High Performance Buildings Conference, all held July 12-15th at Purdue University. The heating and cooling industry is under tremendous market and regulatory pressure to reduce energy consumption and eliminate the use of synthetic refrigerants, which are toxic, long-duration greenhouse gases. EcoThermics will announce the development of sustainable, high-efficiency technology that addresses these challenges.
Held at the Hilton Garden Inn (365 East State Street, West Lafayette, IN), the Illinois Company plans to announce the availability of the first compressor produced in the U.S. which utilizes a natural refrigerant, inexpensive and widely available carbon dioxide (CO2). While use of natural refrigerants are rapidly gaining acceptance throughout the world, we are just beginning to deploy these technologies in the U.S. With conference attendance expected to exceed 600, HVAC engineers and industry leaders will present findings on the technologies and research that continue to drive and shape the HVAC industry. In the spirit of these conferences, EcoThermics and Purdue University will jointly present a technical paper discussing the high-pressure fluid dynamics and thermodynamic science behind this novel compressor, which has solved long-standing industry recognized roadblocks to the development of sustainable, high-efficiency heat pumps. The EcoThermics compressor is a critical enabling component of these systems.
EcoThermics CEO Merle Rocke commented, “Purdue University’s contribution to the advancement of global sustainability within the HVAC industry is well recognized. We are pleased to have the opportunity to present recent advancements here at EcoThermics and to contribute to the great work being done in this industry. We are in great company.”
