The international conference’s focus is on three topics this year, namely Natural Working Fluids, Sustainability in Natural Working Fluids, and Alternative Cycles.
The Natural Working Fluids theme the seminars and presentations will interest people working with or intending to work with natural refrigerants including ammonia, CO2, hydrocarbons, air and water. Topics include barriers, heat transfer and fluid flow, improved efficiency of supermarket technologies, and replacing existing systems.
In the Sustainability in Natural Working Fluids theme topics include understanding total cost of ownership and comparing environmental impact of the different solutions. Also included are options in heat recovery, combined heat and power, heat pumps and passive cooling.
Alternative Cycles will focus on ‘non-conventional refrigeration systems such as secondary coolants, ice slurries, sorption systems and evaporative cooling‘.
The conference attracts over 350 industry professionals and 120 technical papers. Delegates include researchers, innovators, early adopters, and experienced practitioners.
