EMBRACO, a specialist in cooling solutions and a global leader in the hermetic compressor market, has announced its Silver Sponsorship of ATMOsphere America 2014. The 3rd annual conference will take place in San Francisco on 18 & 19 June.Founded in 1971 in Brazil, EMBRACO was initially set up to supply the Brazilian refrigerator industry, which had until that time been relying on imported compressors. A decade later, EMBRACO was selling its products on five different continents. Today, the company has the capacity to produce over 36 million compressors per year.
Innovative and sustainable products
EMBRACO strives to provide innovative solutions for a better quality of life. The company reinforces its commitment to global sustainability by offering a full range of high efficiency compressors and condensing units. The development of natural refrigerant based technologies represents an important investment priority for the company. EMBRACO’s VNEK compressor, part of the Fullmotion family, employs R290 and can help reduce energy consumption by nearly 40% compared to conventional compressors. In addition to its compressor range, the company also produces electrical components, cast iron and complete cooling systems for home and commercial use at its manufacturing facilities in Brazil, Italy, China and Slovakia.
Compressor recycling initiative
EMBRACO also boasts an innovative compressor recycling program in Brazil called Top Green. With this program, the raw materials of the compressor shell are recycled and proper disposal of the engine or remaining materials is provided. Since 2000, the program has seen the recycling of 1,350,000 units in Brazil alone. Top Green underscores environmental preservation and prevents materials from being launched into the environment without proper treatment.
