Prok­lima

Cela fait maintenant 25 ans que Proklima se fait l’avocat d’une protection intégrée du climat et de la couche d’ozone dans le secteur du froid au niveau mondial et met les fluides réfrigérants naturels et les agents d’expansion au cœur de ses activités.

Proklima conseille le ministère fédéral allemand de la Coopération économique et du Développement (BMZ)

Le conseil politique, le renforcement des capacités, la sensibilisation et le transfert de compétences sont au centre des activités de Proklima. Sur mandat du Ministère allemand de la Coopération économique et du Développement (BMZ), le programme apporte son soutien au gouvernement fédéral et participe activement à des réunions et conférences portant sur le Protocole de Montréal comme la RdP, le GTCNL et à l’EXCOM. A travers une multitude de publications et d’événements, Proklima informe autant les professionnels que le grand public sur les nouveautés dans le domaine du refroidissement durable. Dans ce contexte, les cursus de formation au froid Cool Training qui préparent les formateurs, techniciens et décideurs politiques à la manipulation des réfrigérants naturels constituent l’un des projets phares du programme.

Event re­cord­ing: qual­i­fic­a­tion, cer­ti­fic­a­tion and re­gis­tra­tion of RAC tech­ni­cians

07/2020 , Publication - Video :

In this online event, GIZ Proklima provided an answer on how to successfully qualify, certify and register technicians handling natural refrigerants. The event involved experiences from Kenya as a frontrunner country in this regard. 

Especially in developing countries and emerging economies, the demand for cooling is rising. Thus, more and more RAC technicians are needed and they are faced with new challenges. Due to more complex systems and higher environmental, energy and safety standards, these technicians must be very well trained. Comprehensive training not only improves their job opportunities but also ensures that they can handle the equipment safely.

The newly developed “Fit for Green Cooling” scheme provides solutions for a proper qualification of RAC technicians that minimizes environmental and health-related risks and ensures the creation of future-oriented workforce. "Fit for Green Cooling" was developed according to international standards but can be adapted to national contexts and integrated in country-specific structures. It helps reduce direct and indirect emissions over the life-time and disposal of RAC appliances by setting standards that are followed by a skilled workforce. Thereby it supports countries in their efforts to phase-down climate-damaging HFC refrigerants and to reach their NDCs.
