EKA is participating in a feasibility study for CERN on the transition from F-GAS to natural cooling machines with Big Science.

EKAnalys has been selected as a partner by Big Science to participate in an important pre-study on the transition from F-GAS cooling machines to natural cooling machines at CERN. The project, initiated by CERN, is crucial for addressing the implications of recent F-Gas regulations.

With the latest revision of the EU's F-Gas legislation, which now entails an accelerated phase-out of these gases, CERN needs to find sustainable alternatives for its cooling requirements. The cooling machines used to cool down CERN's experiments and accelerator facilities must be adapted to meet the new restrictions and limitations on F-Gas usage. This project is of great importance as CERN's operations depend on these cooling machines.

To facilitate a swift and accurate transition, it is essential to collaborate and leverage the knowledge and resources of various stakeholders, from consultants to suppliers and end-users. EKAnalys AB, with its expertise in cooling technology and sustainability, has been appointed as the leader of this pre-study.

In this project, EKA will collaborate with Fredrik Strengbohm from Caverion and Anders Andersen from CERN.

What is Big Science?

Big Science is an organization that acts as a coordinator between the Swedish industry, universities, research institutes, and international large-scale research facilities. Their main goal is to promote cutting-edge research, innovation, and business opportunities that benefit not only Sweden but the entire world. By creating links and networks between various actors in science and technology, Big Science enables collaboration and knowledge exchange that drives technological advancements and sustainable development.

Big Science is funded by two of Sweden's most significant organizations for supporting and financing Swedish research and high-tech research as well as national growth: Vinnova (Sweden's innovation agency) and Vetenskapsrådet (The Swedish Research Council).

What is CERN?

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is the world's largest particle physics laboratory located on the border between France and Switzerland. It is home to the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world's most powerful particle accelerator, where scientists study fundamental particle physics phenomena and explore the origin and structure of the universe. CERN is also a platform for international collaboration where thousands of researchers from around the world work together to advance science.
