CYTEF 2022 : Ibero-American Congress on Cold Science and Technology

The CYTEF 2022 Congress focused on synergistic technologies to advance in the sustainability of refrigeration (reduction of energy consumption and minimisation of environmental impact). They analysed the possibilities of optimising cooling applications, both for air conditioning and for the agri-food industry and the process industry. They exposed the potential of new cold production systems, such as heat pumps, which can achieve energy savings of up to 60%.

Daniel Antoñanzas (CEO EXKAL) participated in the event through the presentation “Commercial refrigeration and sustainable development” where he explained how the refrigeration sector can positively influence the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In addition, around 200 researchers from the different research groups of Spanish universities and various R&D centres from Portugal, Spain and different Latin American countries attended the event. They showed the latest technological and scientific advances.

Finally, cryogenics and cascade cold production techniques, with temperatures below sixty degrees below zero, which have proven essential this year for the preservation of vaccines and food, are some of the topics that have also been addressed.
