The European F-gas legislation1 imposes two ambitious targets:
The COLD ENERGY project is perfectly in line with the European guidelines for the cold industry, as it is an innovative technology, in terms of energy savings, applied to the cold chain, which enables
*1) Regulation (EU) No 517/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 April 2014 on fluorinated greenhouse gases and repealing Regulation (EC) No 842/2006. Entered into force in January 2015.
2) HCFCs = hydrochlorofluorocarbons
3) HFCs = hydrofluorocarbons
4) COP = Coefficient of Performance, corresponds to the ratio of cooling capacity to electrical power input.
The innovative character of the idea proposed by TurboAlgor was recognised by the European Commission, through the EASME (Executive Agency for Small and Medium Enterprises), which funded it through a Horizon 2020 Pilot Action FT-2016-1.
The COLD ENERGY consortium, coordinated by TurboAlgor, is composed as follows:
Turboalgor is the company at the head of COLD ENERGY, a project financed by the European Community with the aim of reducing consumption and emissions and improving the efficiency of cooling systems.
Turboalgor contributes to increasing the competitiveness of European companies in the refrigeration industry.
Using cutting-edge technology, Turboalgor is able to cut carbon emissions, in line with EU directives.
With its three application solutions, Turboalgor can intervene on both new and existing systems.
