A Glimpse Into the Refrigerant Geek Community
More than software, Trakref is a logic-driven HVACR rules engine that guides you and your workforce and makes you a part of our Refrigerant Geek Community.
You might wonder, what is the Refrigerant Geek Community exactly? In short, and as you will notice, the community is made up of people who care about HVACR and refrigerant compliance from an environmental, health, and safety standpoint.
We thought we would take this post to provide a glimpse into the Refrigerant Geek Community by spotlighting a few refrigerant geeks who we are working with including Louis Potok, Founder of Recoolit; Grid Fruit; and more.
Here’s a quick glimpse:
Refrigerant Safe-Handling in Southeast Asia
After Project Drawdown listed refrigerant management as the number one solution to global warming, Louis Potok was inspired to take action and founded Recoolit, an organization helping to support refrigerant safe-handling and emissions reduction in Southeast Asia, specifically Cambodia.
Ted Atwood, Trakref’s President & CEO, recently sat down and interviewed Louis on his journey with Recoolit so far.
“We’re focused on Southeast Asia at the moment and specifically Cambodia …
When you look at the refrigerant management problem, different parts of the world are addressing this at different speeds.
So, we went to a place where it’s going to be the biggest problem that is being tackled the most slowly with regulations and international treaties.”
The team at Trakref was excited to connect with this refrigerant geek.
And, this isn’t the only geek we’ve recently welcomed.
Meet Other Refrigerant Geeks Who Care
Indeed, other organizations are also trying to do the right thing, and we at Trakref like to connect such people together.
Take Grid Fruit, for example, a team of MIT and CMU alums using data to reduce energy and maintenance costs for food businesses. The energy aspect of refrigerant leakage is important, and we are excited about this project.
Or how about Bard College, who we are working with to develop a refrigerant management program.
As you may already be well-aware, Trakref has been helping facilities manage HVACR and refrigerant since 1994, so it’s little wonder why our Refrigerant Geek Community is made up of facilities of all shapes and sizes.
Helping You Better Manage HVACR and Refrigerant
As a result, Trakref understands how to leverage its insights to help facilities manage HVACR and refrigerant effectively.
We welcome you to join us LIVE next week for our Compliance Open Mic event “Discover Refrigerant Leak Inspection Requirements” happening Tues., Oct. 27 at 1:30pm CST.Register Now
