08.11.2023 News MOP35 Side Event: 27 years of Montreal Protocol implementation in Kenya
Kenya has made considerable achievements in the Montreal Protocol implementation: CFCs were completely phased-out in 2010, and they were followed by halons and methyl bromide. As replacements, natural refrigerants were introduced into the Kenyan market. What made these achievements possible? In the side event, Kenyan stakeholders and the implementing agency GIZ looked back to 27 years of cooperation, reflecting on the effectiveness of the different measures they have put into practice.
07.11.2023 News Cool Talks: “SINTEF believes that natural refrigerants are the only long-term and sustainable path for the refrigeration and heat pump sector”
For this Cool Talk, we have had the opportunity to interview Ole Marius Moen, research scientist at SINTEF Energy Research. He has a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). From 2014 until 2020 he has held several positions, as engineer and later senior engineer in TechnipFMC, working mainly with process flow dynamics in subsea oil and gas production. In 2020 he started as a research scientist in SINTEF Energy Research, and his main field of competence lies in high temperature heat pump systems using natural refrigerants.
