New Zealand HVAC&R professional body CCCANZ has earned a nomination in the prestigious RAC Cooling Industry Awards for its HVAC&R F-Gas Collaboration Project, which uses blockchain methodology.
The group has been shortlisted in the “Environmental Collaboration of the Year” category, which recognises the importance of partnerships and collaborations in the refrigeration and air conditioning sector to achieve environmental goals and drive innovation.
“The HVAC&R industry faces a major environmental challenge in reducing the global warming impact of high global warming potential (GWP) F-gases, particularly hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs),” CCCANZ says.
“CCCANZ, along with other HVAC&R industry organisations in New Zealand operating under the HVAC&R Centre umbrella, has partnered with the software industry to develop a holistic blockchain-centric solution. This solution has the potential to mitigate F-gas greenhouse gas emissions throughout the supply chain.”
The HVAC&R F-Gas Collaboration Project also aims to standardise HVAC&R maintenance and improve safety standards.
Taking place on September 21 at the Grosvenor Ballroom in London, the RAC Cooling Industry Awards celebrate the achievements of the refrigeration and air conditioning industry.
“The awards recognise innovation, environmental progress, best practices, and personal development,” organisers say. “The awards highlight outstanding projects and collaborations that have made a real impact in the industry.”
