Rajan Rajendran, vice president of
engineering services and sustainability atEmerson
Climate Technologies, will share a global perspective on the important issue of
refrigerants at Carrier’s 11th Global Engineering Conference, scheduled for
March 18-20, 2012 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
Carrier, a leader in high technology
HVACR solutions and a part of United Technologies Corp., brings emerging
building trends and environmental issues into focus through the event, which
has the theme “20/20 the Future in Focus: Rethink. Restore.
During his breakout session Rajendran will discuss how
lower global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants are becoming available for
air conditioning and heat pump applications and how minimizing a system’s life
cycle impact on the environment should be the goal in narrowing options. He
will also discuss the pros and cons of the refrigerants being considered in the
industry today and how these choices can affect direct emissions and energy
Rajendran has more than 20 years of experience in the
research, development, and application of compressor products in refrigeration
systems. His role as coordinator of the next generation of refrigerants work
being done at Emerson has made him knowledgeable in alternate refrigerants work
in air conditioning, heat pump and refrigeration systems in the United States and Europe, as well as Asia. He also serves on committees at the
Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) and Underwriters
Laboratory, especially the Low GWP Alternative Refrigerants Evaluation Program
Task Force at AHRI and the Working Groups for A2L Refrigerants at UL. In
addition, he is the incoming chairman of the Compressor and Condensing Unit
Section and the present Engineering Committee chair.
Also, Emerson is participating in AHRI’s industry-wide
cooperative research program, Low GWP Alternative Refrigerants Evaluation
