Emerson-E360USA:  Emerson is to make the EPA’s recent delisting of certain commonly used refrigerants the subject of its next E360 forum.

Taking place at The Westin, Dallas Fort Worth Airport on September 3, this day-long event is timely for those interested in discussing the impacts of this ruling, particularly the future of refrigerants in the HVACR industry.   

The forum will feature keynote speakers David Henkes, vice president of Technomic, and Dr Rajan Rajendran, vice president of system innovation center and sustainability at Emerson Climate Technologies.

Henkes’ presentation will focus on anticipated trends in the foodservice industry through 2020.

Rajendran, who is considered one the industry’s leading experts on refrigerants, will explore the far-reaching effects of the EPA’s final rule on refrigerant delisting and how the industry will adapt to it per application.   

The afternoon will feature interactive break-out sessions on a variety of industry trends. Sessions are divided into two tracks — foodservice and food retail — to give attendees opportunities to discuss the issues that are impacting them most.
