REAL Alternatives 4 LIFE to hold events on the use of low GWP alternative refrigerants across Europe



The EU project, REAL Alternatives 4 LIFE, will organise a programme of Study Days and Train the Trainer events during the second half of 2018 and into 2019 to reinforce the practical training associated with the use of low GWP alternative refrigerants. 


Co-financed by the EU's funding instrument for the environment and climate action, the REAL Alternatives 4 LIFE project will organise four study day events in several countries in Europe aimed at standardising and ensuring a high level of training on low GWP alternative refrigerants.

To be held in the project partners countries Germany (IKKE), Italy (ATF), Poland (Prozon) and Belgium (UCLL), the topics will focus on flammables and carbon dioxide, with the number of participants varying from 8-12 per event. Participants of this programme will include training providers from Croatia, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Spain and Turkey.

At the Study Days, knowledge and expertise will be shared on how low GWP alternative refrigerants training courses are carried out. This will aim to prepare the trainers for the new training courses that will be offered in their national markets based on the REAL Alternatives materials. 

The events will be organised as a half-day of theoretical training and a half-day of practical demonstration on test equipment. The day will be conclude by a written assessment to validate the training and for which participants will receive a certificate.

About REAL Alternatives

REAL Alternatives 4 LIFE promotes best practice in training for low GWP alternative HFOs, R32, hydrocarbon, carbon dioxide and ammonia across Europe – ensuring they are used safely, efficiently, reliably and cost-effectively. It addresses critical barriers currently preventing more widespread uptake in the industry by increasing awareness, experience and knowledge levels. The project is also spreading knowledge on the availability of training for low GWP refrigerants with a presence at some of the most important national, EU and global environmental summits, conferences and events.
