Revised: HVAC industry examines global environmental responsibilities | Facility Executive - Creating Intelligent Buildings

At last week’s FEBRAVA 2005 Trade Show in San Paolo, Brazil, James Wolf and Jeff Moe, global environmental policy executives for Trane, each delivered a presentation on the topic of “Global Warming and Energy Conservation.” The international show and exhibition receives approximately 24,000 participants annually from the refrigeration, HVAC and air treatment industries.

Wolf, vice president and chairman of Trane’s Environmental Policy Council, and Moe, Trane program director for environmental policy, shared their perspectives on the role that heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) technologies could play in meeting environmental priorities. Specifically, their presentations reviewed the following subjects:
•Global environmental priorities including global warming and ozone depletion, and a thorough overview of the environmental implications of various HVAC technologies.
•Sources of global warming, the greenhouse gases contributing to climate change, and updates on the status of global environmental regulations.
•Kyoto Protocol implementation timetables and greenhouse gas target reductions by various countries.
•Potential global warming and ozone depletion impacts of every major refrigerant used by the HVAC industry. His insight provided attendees with an overview of how refrigerants such as HCFC-123, integrated with state-of-the-art HVAC technology from Trane, enable cooling systems to operate with significantly less energy usage and impact on the ozone layer and global warming.

“The ‘green building’ trend in Brazil and other regions provides great opportunities for environmentally responsible companies, like Trane, to assist customers in lowering emissions, improving energy efficiency and reducing the threat of global warming,” Wolf said.
