Tickets are now on sale for the 2023 future:gas seminar roadshow, a series of industry-supported refrigerant education events aimed at those working in the automotive air-conditioning sector.

A lot of change has emerged in the world of refrigerants since the highly successful future:gas events in 2016. So it’s time for another.

First future:gas refrigerant roadshow

Refrigerants are still changing, with some of the changes discussed in previous future:gas seminars happening faster than expected and some slower. There are also some unexpected developments and curveballs in the mix.

Everyone in the industry needs to be aware of what is happening in the market, what the laws are and how they could be changing.

The 2023 future:gas roadshows will again assemble expert speakers to discuss and explain the latest on the recovery and handling of new refrigerants, the laws that will influence each part of the industry and what this will mean for the day-to-day life of those in the business of handling refrigerants.

What’s new?

For example, the obituary has been written for R134a, so we all need to understand what that means for us.

In addition, more alternative refrigerants and technologies are on the horizon as the global automotive industry grapples with the technical challenge of simultaneously keeping vehicle occupants comfortable and every component of an electrified drivetrain at optimum operating temperature while achieving maximum energy efficiency – preferably with a one-size-fits-all solution that can work in any climate in order to achieve economies of scale.

First future:gas refrigerant roadshow

This might not be R1234yf and almost definitely will not be R744.

All this, against a backdrop of new governments with different agendas, mounting pressure to act fast on climate change, the advent of mandatory repair information sharing between car manufacturers and independent repairers, accelerating momentum toward the deletion of internal combustion engines from an increasing number of global car brands, and supply chains that have been disrupted and re-shaped due to pandemics, war, drought, floods and much more.

Suffice to say, this year’s future:gas roadshow will be a must-see.

As previously, we cannot run these vital information sessions without the generosity of corporate and industry sponsorship. Please get in touch about supporting future:gas 2023.
