Focus on Commission B1 : Leading the way in thermodynamics and transfer processes
Coordinated by the IIR Science and Technology Council and chaired by Carlos Infante Ferreira, Commission B1 is extremely active across the entire structure of the IIR including in Working Groups (WG), sub-commissions, conferences, co-sponsored conferences and commission meetings.
The objectives of Commission B1 on Thermodynamics and Transfer Processes are to provide academic and industrial information and data, and to propose any solutions on thermodynamics and transfer processes.
Initiatives and opportunities, such as the phase-down of high-GWP refrigerants, energy-efficient buildings and cars, transport refrigeration, food preservation, the economic importance of the refrigeration sector, the involvement of the younger generation and identifying industrial needs are all at the heart of Commission B1.
A Commission actively involved
Commission B1 actively participates in IIR conferences and congresses and similarly organises workshops in the field.

Details on these and all upcoming IIR conferences and IIR co-sponsored conferences.
IIR Working Groups and Commission B1
IIR Working Groups operate on a temporary basis to bring together specialists in order to work on projects arising from current issues.
Their aim is to promote development, provide knowledge and give recommendations in these spheres.
Commission B1 is involved in IIR Working Groups on Refrigerant System Safety systems (chaired by Lennart Rolfsmann) and on Life Cycle Climate Performance (LCCP) Evaluation (chaired by Yunho Hwang).
