NASRC is hosting a natural refrigerants workshop on March 30th in Sacramento, CA

View invitation & RSVP

We're bringing together refrigeration end-users, along with utilities, contractors, engineers, government officials, equipment manufacturers and environmental NGOs to learn about natural refrigerant options and the environmental benefits, the surprisingly large climate impact that refrigeration equipment has, and policy drivers that make for an ever-shifting landscape. This is a unique opportunity for many stakeholders to come together and learn from each other, ultimately to the benefit of business and the environment.
