IIR and UNEP OzonAction publish French and Spanish versions of Cold Chain Technology Briefs

Originally published in English, the five Cold Chain Technology Briefs have been translated into two additional languages.

As part of their cooperation to support the needs of different stakeholders in developing countries operating under the Montreal Protocol, the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) and UNEP OzonAction have published French and Spanish versions of their Cold Chain Technology Briefs.


This set of short publications includes an in-depth overview of the sector, the technologies used, including refrigerant options, as well as the future prospects and challenges.

They summarise the key elements of the main sub-sectors of the cold chain and provide insight on the various segments, technology trends and issues related to each link of this essential chain.


The Briefs are free to download in all three languages from the IIR website.


The five Cold Chain Technology Briefs cover:
