Future of Air Conditioning Subject of October Webcast

World environmental regulatory actions are coming together to influence changes in mobile A/C systems. What are the options? Will new systems use enhanced HFC-134a, CO2, HFC-152a, or secondary loops? How will technology and regulation change?
A global webcast to discuss the future of technology, regulation and service of mobile A/C systems will be take place Wednesday, October 29, 2003 from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
Sponsored by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) International, the Service Technicians Society (STS) and the Mobile Air Conditioning Society (MACS) Worldwide, the Webcast will feature presentations by Dr. Stephen O. Andersen, Director Strategic Climate Projects, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Ward Atkinson, President Sun Test Engineering, MACS Technical Advisor and Chairman of the SAE Interior Climate Standards Committee.
The speakers will discuss information from the SAE Alternative Refrigerants Symposium held this past July in Scottsdale, Ariz., and present a global overview of alternative mobile A/C refrigerant systems, technology, service and repair, and upcoming European Union regulatory changes.
"Changes are once again on the horizon for the mobile air conditioning industry," said Elvis L. Hoffpauir, MACS president and COO. "It is important for information to be shared so industry professionals can begin to determine their strategy for adapting. MACS is proud to be a part of this Webcast to help communicate the latest information on this subject of importance to the mobile A/C industry."
The cost to view the two-hour webcast is $345 U.S. per location. Anyone wishing to subscribe or obtain more details may contact Elvis Hoffpauir at or call 215/631-7020 x 303.
