The Institute of Refrigeration has announced the programme for the first IIR conference on the Application of HFO Refrigerants, which takes place in Birmingham from 2 to 5 September 2018.

The conference will see more than 70 presentations, making it a “must-go” event on HFOs, the IOR says.

The Institute said: “The conference will provide the first critical analysis by the international refrigeration community of how HFOs are being applied in practice; the lessons that have been learned so far; and the environmental and safety challenges still to be addressed.”

The variety of applications covered  will include energy performance; commercial refrigeration; chillers; risk analysis[ thermophysical properties; compressors; and life-cycle performance.

Delegates will be able to find out where and how HFOs are being used now; what the experience of those applying these new refrigerants has been so far; and what challenges the move to HFOs is presenting.

In addition to a packed programme of ground-breaking presentations, delegates will get the opportunity to attend short courses and tours.
