ATMOsphere, publisher of, has announced a new CO2 (R744) case study, from German OEM TEKO, on top of the 14 previously announced CO2 case studies, for the upcoming ATMOsphere (ATMO) Europe Summit 2022, taking place in person in Brussels, Belgium, November 15–16.

Andreas Meier, Managing Director, TEKO, will deliver the case study, titled “Refrigeration Increased plant durability, operational safety and efficiency by latest innovation, the patent-pending TECO2nditioner.”

This presentation will explain how the TECO2nditioner can improve the stability of a transcritical CO2 system. In particular, the new component helps a system to reach optimal suction gas conditions at the inlet of the compressor, which extends the lifetime of a cooling system, and improves oil management. It also enables the Independent adjustment of temperatures, depending on the operation condition.

In addition to the CO2 case studies, three CO2 end users will deliver presentations in the end user panel discussion. They are Olaf Schulze, Vice President, Director Energy Management/Real Estate Sustainability for METRO Properties Holding GmbH; David Schalenbourg, Director Delhaize Technics, for Delhaize Belgium, a division of Ahold Delhaize; and Dr. Aikaterini Boulamanti, Energy Specialist, Coop Switzerland.

Schulze will discuss METRO’s F-Gas-Exit Program, including an update on its rollout of transcritical CO2 systems with ejectors and heat recovery. Schalenbourg will address Delhaize’s integrated transcritical CO2 systems, which include refrigeration, AC and heat reclaim for heating and hot water. Boulamanti will explain the approach Coop Switzerland is taking to refrigeration, which includes transcritical CO2 systems.

Another end user, Mirko GuidettiCo-Owner of Swiss cold-storage operator Grünenfelder, will discuss its integrated CO2 refrigeration, air-conditioning and heating system, along with Luca Rossi, Engineer Project Manager for Biaggini Frigoriferi, in a case-study session.

This year’s summit, the 12th edition of ATMO Europe, will be held at the Bedford Hotel & Congress Centre in the Brussels city center.

In addition to end-user experiences and industry case studies covering CO2hydrocarbon and ammonia/NH3 (R717) refrigerants, the two-day program will feature policy developments in the EU F-gas Regulation and the REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) regulation.

Other topics will include market updates on heat pumps, the health and environmental impact of f-gas refrigerants, training, SF6-free switchgear technologies, the ATMOsphere Natural Refrigerants Label, and the Cold Chain Innovation Hub (CCI-Hub) in the Philippines. There will also be networking drinks on the evening of November 15.
