Alfa Laval, the Swedish manufacturer of ammonia heat exchangers and other products, is inviting global HVAC&R stakeholders to attend its upcoming net-zero launch event, which will take place online at 2pm CEST (8am EDT) on September 15, 2022.
A follow-up from its event in February 2022, the September session will focus on how Alfa Laval intends to “tackle some of the most pressing issues of today,” including decarbonization, according to a recent statement from the manufacturer.

According to the company, it is committed to accelerating the transition to more efficient, cleaner energy solutions and a circular economy.
“These areas are the corner stones of Alfa Laval’s sustainability offering and they are at the heart of the ways in which we can support our customers to reach net zero,” said Thomas Møller, Executive Vice President of Alfa Laval’s Energy Division. “This sparks our imagination and drives our innovations. At the same time, we need to understand that acceleration of the net-zero journey needs to happen through partnerships, where complementary competences and capabilities come together to break new grounds.”
The 45-minute event, which is free to attend, will feature new products and insights that Alfa Laval says will help accelerate sustainable products in the energy market. Products include the Packinox+ heat exchanger, hybrid air coolers (HYAC) and “tailor-made” systems to boost the energy efficiency of data centers through heat reuse and liquid cooling.
The lineup of expert speakers who will join Møller during the event is yet to be announced.
“We will invite customers from around the world to join us as we discuss the ‘innovation that accelerates sustainable solutions,’” said Møller.
Alfa Laval’s net-zero journey
According to the company’s 2021 annual and sustainability report, it aims to reach net zero for its scope 1 (direct from its operations) and scope 2 (indirect, or use of electricity provided by power plants) emissions by 2030. Alfa Laval is also working to reduce its scope 3 (supply chain and product use) emissions by 50% by the end of the decade.
It was also recently announced that Alfa Laval has partnered with SSAB, a Sweden- and U.S.-based steel company, to develop and commercialize the world’s first heat exchanger made with fossil-free steel. This is one of the first steps on the company’s journey to developing a carbon-neutral heat exchanger by 2030.
