NatRef associations call for papers

eurammon symposium 2020

eurammon, based in Frankfurt, Germany, has issued a call for papers for its Natural Refrigeration Award 2020, which aims to facilitate projects of young scientists and hopes to motivate them to do further research with natural refrigerants.

In lectures and a panel discussion, the symposium will address questions on the topic of “Heating and Cooling with Natural Refrigerants – a Way to Decarbonisation”. Image credit: IMD

All young scientists and graduates from universities and polytechnics are eligible to submit their research. Papers must have been accredited as a Bachelor’s, Master’s or doctoral degree thesis, or a final paper for a similar degree.

The thesis paper must concern refrigeration, air conditioning or heat pump applications using natural refrigerants – ammonia, carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons, air or water – and it must have been graded between July 2018 and March 2020.

Three prizes of USD5 450 (R80 000) each will be awarded. The winners will be selected by an international jury, with members from science, business and the media. In addition to the prize money, the three winners will have the opportunity to present their theses or dissertations to an international audience at the eurammon Symposium 2020, taking place in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, from June 25-26.

The deadline for applications is 27 March 27, and the awards will be handed out on 25 June at the symposium.

The application form can be downloaded here.

About eurammon

eurammon is a European non-profit initiative for natural refrigerants. The Symposium will be held on 25 and 26 June. Operators, planners, system engineers and an interested trade audience will all come together in Switzerland.

In lectures and a panel discussion, the symposium will address questions on the topic of “Heating and Cooling with Natural Refrigerants – a Way to Decarbonisation”.

The focus this year will be on heat pumps using natural refrigerants and the associated possibilities for waste heat recovery. International experts show how the use of heat pumps with natural refrigerants contributes to meeting the increased ecological requirements.

Participants will gain an insight into current legislation and technical regulations, discuss new solutions for heat pumps using natural refrigerants and attend the Natural Refrigeration Awards ceremony.
