Climate change, the greenhouse effect and global warming – in the 21st Century there is scarcely any other subject that is more ubiquitous or “hotly” debated. Global environmental accords like the international Kyoto protocol or specifically the European directive on fluorinated gases are devoted to the problems associated with greenhouse relevant agents and the search for solutions on a political level. Refrigeration and air-conditioning applications amplify the effects of global warming.
In the first place they contribute directly and in a big way to the greenhouse effect through the emission of coolants containing fluorine like partially or wholly fluorinated hydrocarbons. One example of how these emissions are caused is because of leaks in refrigeration systems which allow coolants to escape into the atmosphere. Secondly, the operation of refrigeration systems also causes additional, indirect CO2 emissions due to the not inconsiderable amount of energy required for their operation. This problem is compounded by the fact that demand for refrigeration systems is constantly increasing.
Lucas-Nülle has committed itself to this subject and developed a concept to integrate easily serviceable and effective training systems devoted to this growing sector. Refrigeration and air-conditioning technology is a professional area that builds entirely the latest educational and technical know-how. It is the many years of experience that Lucas-Nülle has accumulated combining theoretical know-how with practical applications which empowers course participants to boost their skills and competence in this area.
