In early 2019, the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) revised its safety standard IEC 60335-2-89 and raised the charge limit for flammable refrigerants in autonomous commercial refrigeration appliancesup to 500g. This was an important step considering that the transition to low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants will lead to an increasing use of flammable refrigerants such as propane (R290) and isobutane (R600a) in commercial refrigeration.

In this side event, experts will give an overview of the revised standard including implications for various commercial refrigeration appliances. Furthermore, selected manufacturers will present examples of commercial refrigeration equipment and opportunities resulting from the standard revision.

Join our side event on Thursday, 26th November 2020, from 9:00 - 10:00 am (UTC) / 10:00 - 11:00 am (UTC+1 Berlin) / 12:00 - 1:00 pm (UTC+3 Nairobi)!
