Refrigerants delivered by mother nature

Natural Refrigeration Award 2020

As an association of companies, institutions, and individuals, eurammon believes that the economic and ecological potential of natural refrigerants is enormous. eurammon is therefore dedicated to promoting research in the area of natural refrigerants and to actively advance the development of innovative, environmentally friendly and energy-efficient systems.

Shaping the future with young scientists

There is no better way to shape the future with natural refrigerants than to facilitate the projects of ambitious young scientists. For this reason, eurammon has created the Natural Refrigeration Award, where outstanding scientific theses in the field of refrigeration, air conditioning or heat pump applications with natural refrigerants are awarded. All graduates and young scientists of universities, polytechnics, colleges, and similar educational institutions can participate, whose scientific paper has been accredited as a doctoral, master’s or bachelor’s thesis, or final paper for a similar degree.

Listen to the three award winners

For the eighth time now, eurammon has selected the winners for the three best scientific theses, together with the International Academy of Refrigeration (IAR), the Representative office in Kazakhstan and the trade journal cci dialog GmbH. «We are proud to award the three winners with a prize money of € 5,000», says Monika Witt, eurammon vice chair, «and to give them the opportunity to present their theses to an international expert audience.» We cordially invite you to take part in the online ceremony and listen to the winners' scientific theses. Click on the following button to register for the online event.

We are an association of companies, institutions and individuals with one goal: to encourage a sustainable approach in refrigeration engineering. eurammon has therefore been advocating the use of natural refrigerants since its foundation in 1996. The initiative sees its mission in providing a platform for information and knowledge sharing – be it for scientists and researchers, politicians, as well as the public at large.

Whether in the food and beverage industry, in air-conditioning, in sport and recreation facilities, hospitals, the chemical, pharmaceuticals or the automotive industry – cooling and refrigeration technologies are essential to our civilization and affect every one of us. That is why we have set our minds to using natural refrigerants – to substantially contribute to an eco-friendly and sustainable refrigeration technology. Welcome to eurammon.

Natural Refrigerants

Natural refrigerants such as ammonia or carbon dioxide have a long-standing tradition – especially in food production and storage, where they have been in use for over 100 years.

«Naturally cool» provides fascinating insights and interesting information about the use of natural refrigerants. The filmlet uses illustrations to explain how the use of natural refrigerants has developed and their history since 2,000 BC. It reveals how natural refrigerants have found their way from ancient Egypt to our modern refrigerators.

  • « Systems with natural refrigerants are already in operation around the world, built with European expertise and components - eurammon being at the forefront of developing the technology of natural refrigerants further. »
    Bernd Kaltenbrunner, eurammon Chairman and Managing Director of KWN Engineering GmbH
  • « The competitive disadvantage of natural refrigerants is diminishing.»
    Stephan Sicar, eurammon member and part of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO)
  • « Natural refrigerants are definitively future-proof – therefore they are the most reasonable solution. »
    Dina Köpfke, Director Governmental Affairs at Emerson Climate Technologies GmbH
