Experts from around the world explored key topics in refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pumps at the fifth Art of Compression Colloquium, organised by the Schaufler Foundation in Germany.
In association with TU Dresden and Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences, delegates met at the Schauwerk museum in Sindelfingen to discuss future technologies.
Speakers included Professor Ullrich Hesse and Professor Christoph Haberstroh, both from TU Dresden, Professor Michael Kauffeld, from Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences, and Barbara Bergmann, the Director of Schauwerk.
Ingo Smit, Chairman of the Schaufler Foundation management board, said: "We are very happy that so many first-rate scientists and speakers joined us in Sindelfingen again this year. Many of the speakers and visitors have been attending the Art of Compression range of events for a long time. Here we have the opportunity to revive old friendships, make new contacts and discuss the latest challenges in the industry."
Rainer Große-Kracht, Member of the Board and Chief Technology Officer at BITZER, said: "In times of change, it becomes clear just how important dialogue is. With low-GWP refrigerants, the Ecodesign Directive and increasing digitalization in refrigeration and air conditioning, brand new challenges await us. The dialogue with experts during the Art of Compression Colloquium makes a valuable contribution to preparing us for the future, as the best ideas are developed together."
Peter Schaufler founded the Schaufler Foundation in 2005 to support science, research and teaching in the field of refrigeration and air conditioning. and to promote the modern arts.
