Bitzer IRS symposium brings together international experts
2017/08/08

7 August 2017
At the end of June, over 60 experts in refrigeration and air conditioning from more than 25 countries came to the first Bitzer International Refrigeration Seminar (IRS) symposium.

The event began on 28 June and concluded on 1 July, with the agenda including an overview of the general situation in the market, digitalisation and refrigerants together, as well as many more subjects.

Kicking off the symposium, Professor Ernst Ulrich von Weizsacker’s lecture was a real highlight. The internationally renowned scientist, current co-president of the Club of Rome and former director of the UNO centre for science and technology summarised the results of his decades of research with some astonishing examples in his lecture, entitled ‘Good technology requires good politics’. He stated: ’’We have to make it clear to ourselves how much potential there is in just one kilowatt-hour. Even a quarter provides enough energy to transport ten kilos from sea level up to the summit of Mount Everest. The number of possible uses is enormous ? but the efficiency of our use is abysmal.’’
