ACREX India 2018

ISHRAE is gearing up for its 19th edition of ACREX India in February.

The Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ISHRAE) is gearing up for the 19th edition of ACREX India to be held from February 22-24, 2018, at BIEC, Bengaluru. This edition of ACREX India promises to venture into exciting themes like sustainability, green buildings, eco-friendly innovations and carbon neutrality while expecting more than 600 exhibitors and participation from major global players across 30 countries. One of the highlights this year will be ISHRAE's collaboration with United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) to discuss technological developments in zero-ODS and low-GWP RAC technologies as well as the regulatory and policy measures needed to scale up their adoption, thereby maximising ozone, climate and energy-efficiency benefits.

Climate-friendly solutions
At ACREX 2018, UNEP will be hosting an exclusive 'Ozone Pavilion' which will serve as a platform for organisations to come and showcase their respective Ozone2, climate-friendly technologies and products.

The pavilion will serve as a testimony to efforts shown towards building ozone and climate- friendly refrigerant technologies or systems. Additionally, ISHRAE has advocated the importance of natural resources, recycling and reusing materials alongside employing energy-efficient equipment as the key to organic sustenance.

Sharing his views, Nirmal Ram, Chairman, ACREX India 2018 and ISHRAE Presidential Member, says, 'ISHRAE is committed to address contemporary issues and deliver innovative solutions through ACREX India every year, and this year we are excited about the unique product offerings we will be introducing. The 2018 edition of ACREX will be all the more memorable because of ISHRAE's collaboration UNEP. ACREX India has always played an essential role in bringing the industry together while working closely with key brands and partners.'

Working beyond
The HVAC&R industry is benefitting, thereby making India a consumer market to be reckoned with and a destination that attracts many international companies to come and sell their products.

'UN Environment is pleased to co-organise the Ozone to Climate Technology Roadshow and Industry Dialogue at ACREX India 2018. This is the result of a decade-long successful partnership between ASHRAE and UN Environment,' says Shamila Nair-Bedouelle, Head of OzonAction-Montreal Protocol. 'The joint work plan for 2017-2018 of our two organisations is structured around the theme 'Working beyond High-GWP Refrigerants' to reflect international movement to reduce dependency on high-GWP technologies especially in light of the adoption of the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol. Cooperation with ISHRAE is an example of how the ASHRAE-UN Environment cooperation is shaping to actively engage with regional and national associations, ensuring the global messages and programmes respond to the specific needs of developing economies,' she adds.

Rising opportunities
The exhibition, held over three days, witnesses a host of both national and international visitors and is known to be the largest platform for networking for the construction industry. ACREX India is also responsible for offering its key stakeholders an opportunity to acquaint themselves with the latest technologies in the field. This edition commits to positively impact the society that we live in with dedicated pavilions on Refrigeration & Cold Chain, Building Automation (BMS).

'We are pleased to partner with ACREX India again this year. This partnership is an important part of AHRI's continued commitment to supporting the HVACR and water heating industry around the globe,' says Stephen Yurek, President & CEO, AHRI. As ACREX India 2018 gears up to be a truly international show, ISHRAE, as an industry body, continues to protect the environment, facilitate energy conservation and improve the impact of HVAC&R. This is in line with the larger goal of promoting energy efficiency, sustainability and achieving advanced functional and aesthetical value in the HVAC&R industry, that is going to be addressed though ACREX 2018.
