ATMO Conference To Feature Speakers From EPA, CA Senate


The ATMOsphere America Summit 2022 will address the latest developments in natural refrigerant-based systems June 7-8 at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center, just outside of Washington, D.C.

This 11th annual edition of ATMO America will feature speakers from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the California State Senate, who will participate in a policy discussion on the latest regulatory changes impacting the uptake of natural refrigerants, including CO2, hydrocarbons and ammonia.

It will be the first in-person ATMO America conference since 2019. Attendees will include key industry experts, policy makers, end users, contractors and manufacturers. ATMO America is organized by ATMOsphere (formerly shecco).

Cindy Newberg, director of the stratospheric protection division at EPA, will give an update on the American Innovation and Manufacturing Act, with a focus on the impending “Technology Transitions” proposed rulemaking. 

The AIM Act authorizes the EPA to regulate HFC refrigerants, which contribute significantly to global warming; its initial rule, announced last September, established HFC allowances and guidelines for HFC allocation and trading.

EPA representatives will also hold an EPA AIM Act Workshop, an opportunity for natural refrigerant industry stakeholders to interact with EPA and state officials, asking questions, addressing concerns and highlighting priorities in regard to the AIM Act rollout.

Also on the policy amd standards panel, California State Sen. Nancy Skinner will discuss her bill, SB 1206, which supports the adoption of natural refrigerants while lowering acceptable GWP levels for HFC gases. 

A number of end users and contractors will be discussing their approach to natural refrigerants at ATMO America. This includes Aer Teale, director of engineering at Lineage Logistics, who will deliver the keynote address on “The Intersection of Energy, Sustainability and Refrigeration.”

Numerous manufacturers will speak about the latest natural refrigerant-based technologies, including heat pumps.

In addition, a panel on the impact of refrigerants on health, safety and climate address the importance of defining PFAS to include certain fluorinated refrigerants and TFA.
