Call for Case Studies, ATMOsphere America 2014

[-] text [+]

We are now accepting natural refrigerant case studies to be presented during the parallel Technology Case Study Sessions at ATMOsphere America 2014, which will take place on 18 & 19 June in San Francisco. Case studies must be focused on or applicable to the North American market.

Abstract submission deadline: 15 March 2014.

Application areas
  • Commercial & light commercial refrigeration
  • Industrial refrigeration
  • Air Conditioning (mobile & stationary)
  • Heat pumps
  • HVAC
  • Transport
  • Other areas of application
Abstract submission criteria

The focus of the case study should be on completed or ongoing projects, best practices and lessons learned in the field of natural refrigerants (CO2, NH3, hydrocarbons, water and air) in North America. The case study should provide and analyze real life results relating to the energy efficiency, cost benefits and reliability of a HVAC&R technology using one or multiple natural refrigerants. Please note that we will not accept purely commercial or product focused case studies.

Abstracts must satisfy the following criteria
  • Sustainable: The case study should address the potential of natural refrigerant technology
  • Replicable: Lessons learned that could be applied to other projects in North America
  • Original: Technology innovations, research results that have not been shown elsewhere, new fields of application, etc.
  • Tangible: Examples of real life installations and demonstration projects, laboratory testing with tangible results, etc.
  • Efficiency analysis: Analysis of how the refrigerant influences the Coefficient of Performance (COP), comparison of different systems or parameters, etc.
  • Cost analysis: energy costs, operational costs, planning and installation costs, life-cycle costs
Important: Author, content and format guidelines

*Please be sure to respect the specific abstract submissions guidelines or your case study may not be considered. Please also note that the information provided in the abstract will be used to market your case study if it is chosen for ATMOsphere America 2014.

In your abstract submission, please include:
  • Your full name, organisation and email address
  • Case study title
  • An abstract (paragraph at least 5 sentences)
  • Keywords
  • Relevance to the North American market
Presentation at the event

Presenters should plan for 12 minutes presentation time + a 3 minute Q&A. A case study draft will need to be submitted two weeks prior to the event. 

Please also note that case study presenters are entitled to a 50% discounted speaker rate for ATMOsphere America 2014.

Abstract submission

Please submit your case study abstract via email to and indicate “ATMOsphere America 2014” in the subject line and in the case study itself.

Submission deadline: 15 March 2014
