This pandemic is one big wave far from getting over. There is no question that it will permanently change all businesses going forward, as there is a lot of economic uncertainty. Just to cite, most of our office staff works from home now, because of safety concerns of coming in contact with other people or on way to office. The focus on the health and safety of employees will continue to be the priority in our publication house as usual.

Though familiar routines of our daily life tossed out of window, one good thing that happened positive towards environment is – levels of air pollutants and warming gases over some cities and regions are showing significant drops as coronavirus scare impacted industries function and travel. Emissions of the planet-heating gas CO2 have also fallen sharply. In my opinion, refrigeration industry also needs to ensure that HVACR systems being designed for effectiveness and efficiency must include the latest technologies from a hygienic and safety point of view.

At the outset, we thank all the authors for contributing articles to your own publication bringing knowledge of refrigeration and HVAC industry for our readers. Also, we at Chary Publications are attending webinars, other online and networking sessions, thus providing the industry with latest content. This July-August 2020 issue presents its readers with broad coverage on air purifier, cold chain, refrigerants in the changing environment and other interresting topics.

The COVID-19 pandemic shut down many ‘non-essential’ businesses for several months, but this did not include supermarkets and other food retailers, most of which were busier than ever. Now life is getting back to normal, or rather, a ‘new normal’, as the pandemic teaching has forever changed the ways how businesses will operate, adapting to healthy and safety precautions, new processes and regulations. To put simply, now it’s becoming obligatory to adopt digital competence and healthier physical distancing, as the distant looks uncertain and market players need to redesign their strategies.
