Last week we had the honor to present and discuss our environmental refrigeration solution to a very special audience. Our Development director, Tsyplakov Vladyslav, introduced our own natural refrigerant solution at the Informations-Treffen Kälteanwendungen under -50 °C, which was very well received.
On the 12th of November, a symposium took place, dedicated to Natural refrigerants – safe and efficient use. It was a high-profile event organized by the Bavarian State Office for the Environment along with the district association of Munich, the Unterbezirksverein Nürnberg of the German cooling and air conditioning association (DKV) registered an association and the ecological research office for environmental research and consultation.
We are glad to invite specialists and experts to our training workshop „Implementation of Air cycle using turbocompressor“, which will be held in March at MIRAI Intex manufacturing site in Brno, Czech Republic.

We are proud to announce that our company has joined European Heat Pump Association.
We share common aim to promote heat pumps technology across Europe and rest of the world through cooperation with one of the most authoritative associations in this field.
It is an honor to be a part of a large network and to have an opportunity to be heard by policy and decision makers. EHPA in its turn is always keen to provide its high-level market expertise and informational support to the members.
Recently The United Nations Climate Conference (COP23) in Bonn, Germany, has come to an end, having set the new milestones and objectives for sustainable future. The conference, which ran from 6th to 17th of November, was an influential and large-scale event that brought together more than 27.000 participants from all over the world towards the main common objective – forcing of Paris Agreement implementation and the 2030 Agenda Sustainable Development Goals achievement.
This year’s area of concern was a question of maintaining the momentum two years after the adoption of the Paris Agreement on climate change in the context of the United States withdrawal from the accord. However, the evidence shows that this circumstance provoked an unprecedented wave of support for Agreement – it has been ratified by 170 countries by now.
Apart from negotiations among Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), States and non-State actors in the different areas announced several new climate action initiatives, commitments and partnerships: energy, water, agriculture, transportation, industry, etc. Climate finance and climate resilience were also at the centre of the discussions at the conference.
MIRAI INTEX had a chance to take part in this conference and to communicate with other participants about the progress made so far, to discuss the ambitious plans of „zero carbon world“ transition by 2050. As party members were negotiating on the details of the collaborative action plan since 2020, the other non-party half of visitors and exhibitors were presenting their research findings, innovative technologies and proposing new ways to make our living more sustainable. From solar panels to smart grids and climate insurance, COP23 made it clear that business is serious about low-carbon transition relying on the success of energy transformation into other sectors – such as transport, agriculture and industry.
As a manufacturer of eco-friendly HVAC&R equipment, MIRAI INTEX is supportive of climate action initiatives and global movement towards a sustainable future through implementation and wide usage of eco-friendly technologies and we hope that HVAC&R would be one of the trendsetters for these technologies.
In conclusion, COP23 was an important milestone on the road to implementing the Paris Agreement. Business community should accumulate efforts in a deal of climate change mitigation and show more engagement in structured dialogues with policymakers and to move forward in delivering solutions, as well as policymakers should create legally binding agreements to prevent the least collaborative countries from lagging behind.
MIRAI INTEX attended ATMOsphere Europe 2017, one of the largest events dedicated to natural refrigerants and environmentally friendly technologies that took place in Berlin at the end of September.
The main focus of a three-days conference was promotion of natural refrigerants in heating, ventilation and cooling sectors alongside with discussions around HFC control measures and further steps for F-gases reduction. The industry leaders and decision makers shared their opinions, success stories and expertise, based on existing projects.
Among key speakers were representatives of large manufacturing and engineering companies, industry associations, environmental organizations and policy makers, such as GEA, Dorin, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, EHPA (European Heat Pump Association), Environmental Investigation Agency, AREA (Air Conditioning Refrigeration European Association), etc.
According to the experts’ estimation, the competition between natural refrigerants is increasing, with NH3/CO2 cascade systems also gaining acceptance. Current tendency shows, that the industrial market is moving towards natural refrigerants due to their safety characteristics, despite some technical challenges.
The industry objectives towards HFC reduction reflect MIRAI INTEX values and philosophy in making an environmentally friendly technology energy efficient and available.
MIRAI Intex participated in the Global Biobank Week which took place on 13-15 September in Stockholm.
Biobanking and BioMolecular resources Research Infrastructure – European Research Infrastructure Consortium (BBMRI-ERIC), European, Middle Eastern and African Society for Biopreservation and Biobanking (ESBB), and International Society for Biological and Environmental Repositories (ISBER) organized this conference, the central theme of which was global harmonization of biobanking activities.
The conference attracted around 1000 participants including biobanking experts, scientists, policy makers and patient representatives for discussion and collaboration on activities important for biobanking, preservation of samples and data for biological and environmental research to improve health care and decrease the burden of disease worldwide.
Among the keynote speakers of the event were Greg Simon, the President of the Biden Cancer Initiative, Gregory Biden, the Director of the Biden Cancer Initiative, and Jan-Eric Litton, Professor at Karolinska Institute and former Director General of BBMRI-ERIC. Session topics included personalised medicine, quality of samples, harmonisation efforts, data protection, and the benefit for citizens and society.
For MIRAI Intex, as a designer and producer of low-temperature storage complex for biological materials, participation in this event became the unique opportunity to meet the leaders of biobanking in one place, and to get information about latest achievements and challenges in this dynamic and rapidly developing field.
MIRAI Intex participated in Decarb Heat Forum, organized by European Heat Pump Organization (EHPA), which took place in Brussels on 11-12 May. The forum gathered more than 220 participants including the major players of the heating and cooling industry from all around Europe and relevant policy-makers at European, national, regional and local level.
The forum included insights from respected institutions, global corporate leaders, industry and science opinion leaders, EU policymakers.
In the ambitious post-Paris COP21 world, the Decarb Heat Forum stands out as the first gathering of cross-sectoral companies, associations and institutions that believe in bridging the gap and connecting the heating/cooling and electricity sectors in the move towards zero CO2 emissions by 2050.
The first day of the conference was focused on the policies towards the decarbonisation of cities and industry. Among the events to have taken place in the first day was the DecarbHeat Ceremony in which the representatives of the industry and other major stakeholders had the opportunity to formally sign both the Industry Pledge and the Declaration of Support. MIRAI Intex company joined to the big initiative by signing the Declaration. The signatures reflect the willingness to make the vision of 100% decarbonized European heating and cooling system reality.
An honoured guest of the Ceremony was His Royal Highness the Prince Laurent of Belgium, who supported the initiative by signing the Declaration. The ceremony was followed by Heat Pump City of the Year Awards, presented by Céline Frémault, Minister of Energy and Environment for the Brussels Capital Region.
