“The theme put up for the conference is The Natural Choices Towards 2030. Currently the whole industry is in search for alternatives complying with the phase-down prescribed by the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol. Especially for A5 countries, conversion to natural refrigerants could be a possibility to leapfrog to long term environmentally safe alternatives. The onference should contribute in bringing forward solutions based on natural working fluids for applications within refrigeration, air conditioning, heat pumps and heat engines.”


Trygve M. Eikevik, Chair of the Organising Committee
