Real Alternatives 4 Life announces e-learning platform in 15 languages

The alternative refrigerants e-learning platform from the Real Alternatives 4 Life project is now live and available in 15 languages.

The Real Alternatives 4 Life project is supported by national leads in 12 different European countries (shown in green).

The e-learning platform is a free tool which focuses on safety, efficiency, reliability and containment of low GWP alternative refrigerants – carbon dioxide, ammonia, hydrocarbon and low flammables (HFOs and R32).

There are nine learning modules, which cover:

  • Introduction to Alternative Refrigerants - safety, efficiency, reliability and good practice demonstrations
  • Safety and risk assessment
  • System design using alternative refrigerants 
  • Containment and leak detection of alternative refrigerants
  • Maintenance and repair of alternative refrigerant systems
  • Retrofitting existing systems
  • Checklist of legal obligations when working with alternative refrigerants
  • Measuring the financial and environmental impact of leakage
  • Tools and guidance for conducting site survey

The new platform has also been updated to include demonstration videos covering both flammables and carbon dioxide principles.

To support the e-learning programme, the Real Alternatives 4 Life team is organising ‘train the trainer’ events from March to June 2019 across Europe.

With a focus on flammables and carbon dioxide, these events will provide trainers with a practical introduction to the Real Alternatives 4 Life programme which includes assessments and certification, as well as information about how to set up and market Real Alternatives training events. This will lead to a network of over 100 licenced training providers in alternative refrigerants throughout Europe.

The Real Alternatives 4 Life project is supported by national leads in 12 different European countries: Spain, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Poland, UK, Romania, Turkey, Croatia, Portugal, Slovakia and Czech Republic.

Chiller CyberCool WaterTec - Water cooled

Forward-thinking, environmentally friendly  and efficient The CyberCool WaterTec is a water-cooled chiller that combines all the relevant factors: the design is compact and maintenance friendly, the Turbocor technology is optimized for partial loads, and, in a forward-thinking manner, refrigerant quantities are minimized with the simultaneous use of a refrigerant that has a very low global warming potential.
