Call To Action – Politics and Good Practices for an Efficient Management of Fluorinated Gases
29 April, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
The World is facing serious problems due to climate change that must be addressed with urgency by all of us.
KET4F-Gas is an European project co-financed by the Interreg Sudoe Programme, aiming to reduce the environmental impact of fluorinated gases (F-gases), which have high global warming potential. These gases are used as refrigerants in the cooling and refrigeration sector and for several other applications.
Different European legislations have been published with the aim to reduce F-gases emissions and to promote a circular economy. However, their practical application faces serious obstacles and the management of F-gases continues to be a problematic in the cooling and refrigeration sectors.
This workshop aims at bringing together different stakeholders, including public entities (central, regional, and local administration), waste electric and electronic equipment management platforms, waste management companies, non-governmental environmental and consumer associations, as wells as companies from the cooling and refrigeration sector. These stakeholders will be part of a collaborative exercise aiming to identify the key necessities and challenges faced by the cooling and refrigeration sector and by the management of F-gases, and to discuss possible solutions, techniques, and politics to reduce the environmental impact of F-gases.
