Research and Development
There are three principal industrial R&D programmes -Climate 21, ELAN efficient use of electricity and Process integration. The Climate 21 programme for more efficient refrigerating machinery and heat pumps started in 1997. A central element of the programme is the dissemination of information on costs and energy efficiency, and the environmental impact of applications and systems to participating companies. Process integration is an umbrella name for methods for the design and conversion of industrial processes in respect of capital and running costs, energy yields, production capacity and environmental emissions.
