CO2 and Supermarkets: Latest Developments and Adoption in the U.S. | EnVisioneering Exchange podcast ep. 38
Peter Dee, sales director of food retail at Danfoss, joins John Sheff, Danfoss’ former director of public and industry affairs, to discuss the adoption of CO2 and other trends in food retail.
Host John Sheff provides an update on the status of the upcoming HFC phasedown and refrigerant transition. Issues addressed include building code updates and the potential for a shortfall in available HFCs.
Host John Sheff is joined by guest Kevin Fay of Alcalde & Fay and the Alliance for Responsible Atmospheric Policy (“The Alliance”) to discuss refrigerant transition both in the U.S. and globally. The conversation covers current protocols and recent legislation to reduce the use of HFC compounds and the challenges and opportunities for the U.S. HVACR industry.
Host John Sheff is joined by Markus Lempp, Danfoss Director of Public and Industry Affairs of Central Europe, for a conversation on hydrogen power. Since hydrogen is much more established in Europe than it is in the US, Lempp is able to provide real-world examples of how hydrogen is already being used. Lempp also describes hydrogen fuel cells and what some of the different hydrogen colors mean.
Francis Dietz calls in to the show to discuss the importance of indoor air quality (IAQ), especially in a post-pandemic world. Their conversation centers around what IAQ is, how it can impact health and safety, some of the costs associated with upgrading HVAC systems to improve IAQ, and some of the challenges businesses and schools face in improving IAQ.
Drew Turner, Global Marketing Manager for Oil-free Solutions at Danfoss, joins host John Sheff in this episode of the Envisioneering Exchange podcast for a dialogue about the decarbonization policies in North America, and the role played by oil-free compressor and heat pump technology in meeting emissions targets and electrifications goals.
Host John Sheff interviews, Peter Dee, Danfoss’ Sales & Services Director for Food Retail in North America, about refrigerant trends in food retail applications, such as using alternative refrigerants, particularly natural refrigerants like CO2. Further they detail on what new and existing technologies are available to support an efficient, cost-effective transition to natural refrigerants, and the impact of refrigerant regulations.
In this episode of the Envisioneering Exchange podcast, host John Sheff and guest Vic Marinich, the Global Marketing Director for Air Conditioning at Danfoss, take a look at the current landscape of refrigerants for air-conditioning applications (from R-22 to R-410A, to R-134a and beyond). Later in the podcast, they discuss the phasedowns of high-GWP refrigerants as well as the emergence of flammable and mildly flammable refrigerants.
Host John Sheff, Danfoss’ Director of Public Affairs, has Dean Groff, Danfoss Food Retail Services Contractor Manager, back to discuss flammable refrigerants, their regulations, and how to safely handle them.
