The International Institute of Refrigeration produces five Cold Chain Technology Briefs in partnership with UN Environment OzonAction
On January 16, 2018, the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) organised a side event dedicated to the cold chain at the First Inter-Regional Thematic Technical Workshops and Regional Network Meetings for National Ozone Officers, during which IIR experts presented five Cold Chain Technology Briefs.
The IIR commissioned several of its experts in their capacity as presidents of an IIR section (Jacques Guilpart), an IIR commission (Judith Evans and Richard Lawton) and as an IIR member (Paul de Larminat) to produce five Cold Chain Technology Briefs in partnership with UN Environment OzonAction.
The briefs, which were distributed to the National Ozone Officers during the international meeting, summarise the different cold chain sectors with the aim to assist National Ozone Units and local stakeholders gain insight on the various segments, technology trends and issues related to each sector.
Welcoming over 70 participants, the IIR side event dedicated to the cold chain was the ideal forum for the IIR experts to present the related driving policies, the current refrigerants used and potential alternatives, including the technical challenges, as emphasised in the Cold Chain Technology Briefs.
The Cold Chain Technology Briefs focus on:
- Refrigeration in Food Production and Processing
- Cold Storage and Refrigerated Warehouse
- Commercial, Professional and Domestic Refrigeration
- Transport Refrigeration
- Fishing Vessel Application
The Cold Chain Technology Briefs can be downloaded on the IIR website at:

The International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) is the only independent intergovernmental science and technology based organisation which promotes knowledge of refrigeration and associated technologies and applications on a global scale that improve quality of life in a cost effective and environmentally sustainable manner including:
- Food quality and safety from farm to consumer
- Comfort in homes and commercial buildings
- Health products and services
- Low temperature technology and liquefied gas technology
- Energy efficiency
- Use of non-ozone depleting and low global warming refrigerants in a safe manner.
