Global HVAC&R stakeholders are invited to attend Alfa Laval’s net-zero launch event #5, which will take place online at 2pm CET (8am EST) on November 15.
This 45-minute webinar is free to attend. The program covers applications for clean energy, circularity and ways to improve energy efficiency through the company’s products and services.

As a Swedish manufacturer of ammonia (R717) heat exchangers and other products, Alfa Laval is “a world leader in three technologies: heat transfer, separation and fluid handling.” Its heat exchangers are also suitable for CO2 (R744)-based refrigeration systems.
“Alfa Laval can help optimize energy-intensive ammonia processes with our compact and highly efficient heat exchangers,” the company says on its website. The company’s global services and products for R717 systems ‒ its OLMI, Packinox and Compabloc portfolios ‒ “support reducing energy consumption and raising yields.”
This net-zero launch is a follow-up to Alfa Laval’s June event and has “an incredible line-up of speakers to present our solutions to some of the biggest climate challenges of our time,” Alfa Laval reports.
Company speakers for the event include:
- Thomas Møller, President, Energy Division;
- Evgeny Rossiyskov, Vice President, Gasketed Plate Heat Exchangers;
- Eva Andersson, Senior Refinery Process Specialist;
- Osama Zaalouk, Business Development Manager; and
- Karin Forsberg, President Energy Separation.
Rosslyskov has more than 20 years of experience in the energy sector. “He is a committed energy hunter who strives to leverage innovative energy solutions and make industries more efficient,” the company said in the webinar announcement.
The program will include the following topics:
- The ALF filter: a self-cleaning filter for gasketed heat exchangers.
- Service solutions: proactive maintenance for heat exchanger performance.
- Packinox in high-temperature and low-temperature processes.
Clean energy application
- Carbon capture, utilization, and storage through energy-efficient heat transfer technologies.
- Clean technologies for a circular tomorrow.
- Downstream separation of recycled material, biomass, captured carbon, and organic waste oil.
In April, Alfa Laval entered into a partnership with Swedish-based Boliden – a mining and smelting company – to produce more sustainable heat exchangers using low-carbon copper. “Bringing together Boliden’s copper and our energy-efficient heat exchangers means we can contribute to the industry’s transformation towards net zero,” said Tom Erixon, President and CEO of Alfa Laval.
The manufacturer released its T21 gasketed plate-and-frame heat exchanger in March that can handle up to 40bar (600psi) of pressure. “Thanks to several plate materials and pressing depths, we can now offer efficient heat transfer to even more industries,” Alfa Laval said. “Efficient heat transfer can save millions of tons of CO2e [emissions].”
Founded in 1883 by Gustaf de Laval, Alfa Laval seeks to be scope 1 and 2 carbon neutral by 2030, with a 50% reduction in scope 3. “All scopes should be net-zero by 2050,” the company says on its website.
