On 6 March 2018, Marco Buoni presented the REAL Alternatives 4 LIFE project on the occasion of the Fgas Consultation Forum held in Brussels. Established by the Fgas Regulation, the Fgas Consultation Forum brings together the European Commission, Member States and stakeholders to discuss important aspects related to the application of the Regulation.

The REAL Alternatives 4 LIFE project was presented in the context of discussions on information on training of personnel for the safe handling of alternative refrigerants. It was acknowledged as playing an important role to ensure the refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump contractors have the necessary level of knowledge to safely handle alternatives to HFCs, which are developing as a result of the Fgas phase-down.
