Executives from some of the biggest refrigerant companies in the world are participating in CCN Live 2019.

Experts from around the globe will contribute to this year's theme 'Refrigerant Roadmap Beyond 2030' sharing their insight and knowledge at the half day event on October 10, 2019.

Participants will be able to ask questions and contribute to a panel discussion on how industry can move forward in a refrigerant landscape that will be more flammable following the HFC phasedown.

CCN has put together a final speaker program which includes Honeywell's global business manager for refrigeration, Robert Kebby, and Arkema's environment manager for the fluorinated products division, Nick Campbell.

Kebby is an industry veteran with over 38 years of experience. He was initially involved in the installation and service of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment which led to a career in technical sales, product and marketing management in heat exchangers at Kirby Refrigeration.

In 1997 he moved to the UK where he worked in sales and product management for a major wholesaler NRS before returning to the OEM segment as the UK/Ireland director for compressor manufacturer Emerson Climate Technologies (Copeland).

Kebby remained at Emerson for 7 years before moving into the chemical industry taking up an EU technical marketing role at Honeywell in April, 2012.

Kebby isn't CCN's only international speaker with a special presentation by Arkema's Nick Campbell who is also chair of the European Fluorocarbon Technical Committee (EFCTC). Campbell will talk about the HFC phasedown and the many challenges associated with new refrigerants and their application.

The opening address at CCN Live 2019 will be delivered by Refrigerant Reclaim Australia general manager, Kylie Farrelley, who has spent decades working with refrigerants.

CCN Live participants will also be invited to participate in a panel discussion made up of Farrelley, Kebby and Refrigerant Australia executive director, Greg Picker.

Following the speaker program, the winners of the 2019 HVACR Leadership Awards will be announced.

There are 27 finalists competing for seven awards and this year's sponsors are ABB, Daikin, Kirby, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Air Conditioners Australia, Panasonic Air Conditioning, Refrigerant Reclaim Australia and Toshiba.
