Event in spirit of World Refrigeration Day to highlight importance of young talent

As part of the World Refrigeration Day campaign, Eurovent Middle East is hosting a webinar dedicated to human resources in the HVACR industry. The webinar is organised in cooperation with Careersbay.com and Climate Control Middle East and will be hosted in a live panel discussion format. It will take place on Thursday, 24 June 2021 from 11:00-12:30h (GST) and will feature experts from the HVACR industry and recruitment sectors.

Eurovent Middle East emphasises the use of ISO 16890 as reference standard for air filtration in general ventilation

The Association has published an Industry Recommendation to encourage exclusive use of ISO 16890 as the reference standard for air filtration in general ventilation and will host a dedicated webinar on 09 June 2021 to outline its importance and explain the correct selection process for air filtration products under this classification. Considering the COVID-19 pandemic, adherence to the latest standards in air conditioning and ventilation is a critical factor to improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and safety in buildings.

Guidance from Eurovent Middle East on standards referenced in the publication

On 01 March 2021 the World Health Organization (WHO) published the ‘Roadmap to improve and ensure good ventilation in the context of COVID-19’ with the intention of providing a globally adopted reference in the best interests of public health and creating awareness for good ventilation practices. The first edition of the publication referenced outdated and obsolete standards, therefore Eurovent supported by Eurovent Middle East, submitted official recommendations to the WHO to revise the references. On 13 April 2021, a corrigendum was published by the WHO to withdraw the obsolete references in the publication. Eurovent Middle East recommends exclusive use of ISO 16890 as the global standard for air filter classification.

Association underlines its commitment to sustainable cooling

Dubai, 20 April 2021. Eurovent Middle East, the region’s HVACR industry association, has become a member of the Cool Coalition, a global initiative led by UN Environment and the Kigali Cooling Efficiency Programme. The initiative promotes a holistic and cross-sectoral approach to meet the cooling needs of both industrialised and developing countries through better building design, energy efficiency, renewables, and thermal storage as well as phasing down refrigerants with a high global warming potential.

The future of the commercial refrigeration market in the region – by Dania Shehadeh, Research Analyst, BNC

BNC is looking at major projects in the refrigeration sector.  Among other things the pandemic has taught the region, is to manufacture more and store more when it comes to essential items and particularly food and medicine. While 2021 is off to a slow start the future for commercial refrigeration in the region is bright.
