New IIR conference on the application of HFO Refrigerants
Call for abstracts: First IIR International Conference on the application of HFO Refrigerants
From September 2 to 5, 2018 in Birmingham (UK), the Institute of Refrigeration (IOR) will host the inaugural IIR International Conference on the application of HFO Refrigerants.
The three-day conference will provide a focus for global experience on the use of low flammable A2L classification refrigerants, which encompass the new generation of HFO refrigerants heralded as replacements for high GWP HFC refrigerants. The event will cover essential information for designers, manufacturers, end users and installers about characteristics of low GWP refrigerants, system and component design, lubricants, flammability, legislation, codes of practice and standards.
“The IOR is proud to be attracting world experts in the application of HFO refrigerants to the UK and providing this unique international showcase for UK industry…” Andy Pearson, chair of the conference planning panel.
With the HFC phase-down programme now being implemented throughout Europe, and likely to be adopted in many other regions, this conference will provide an opportunity for those developing new working fluids to meet with the equipment design engineers who provide products, the system installers who use them, as well as with representatives of the end-user community who have to implement the scientific and technical decisions.
This conference will offer a unique chance for these groups to interact in a forum specifically focused on the practical aspects of developing these new refrigerants.
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS ends October 2, 2017.
In addition to papers focusing on A2L Refrigerants, the conference will accept papers that include either practical or theoretical comparisons of other LGWP fluids such as ammonia, CO2 and hydrocarbons. These papers will be expected to compare and contrast experiences of those refrigerants versus HFOs.
