Conference update: Sydney

The 9th IIR Gustav Lorentzen Conference Natural Working Fluids will be held in Sydney, Australia, on April 12-14, 2010. The call for papers and first announcement are now available: The conference will focus on the latest research results and advances related to the use of natural refrigerants in refrigeration, air conditioning, heat pump systems, case studies; reduction of emissions. The main themes will include: natural primary refrigerants; secondary coolants and ice slurries; low emission and low charge (HFC) systems; sorption systems; non-conventional systems; heat transfer and fluid flow; energy use and energy efficiency. Papers are being sought on the following key topics: hydrocarbons, ammonia, CO2, water, air, indirect cooling, commercial and industrial refrigeration, emissions and energy savings, district cooling and heating, sorption systems, lubricants, sustainable heating and cooling with CO2, CO2 in hot climates, CO2 heat pump systems, heat transfer and heat exchangers.
