IIR International Conference – deadline for abstracts extended

There is still time to submit your abstract for the 2018 inaugural IIR International Conference on the Application of HFO Refrigerants, with the deadline having been extended to 20 October 2017. 

The three day conference will provide up-to-date information and technical papers on the experience and use of the new family of A2L refrigerants known as HFOs.

Papers exploring and reporting on the conference themes are invited, with themes including:

  • Characteristics of HFO refrigerants 
  • Design issues for systems, components and controls
  • Safety issues (flammability risk analysis, design considerations, operating experience)
  • Legislation, codes of practice and standards
  • Responsible use and environmental considerations 

To be considered for the conference programme, please submit a 150 word abstract at by 20 October.

The organisers particularly welcome abstracts for papers which showcase both UK and international innovation, and practical case studies of how HFO refrigeration technology is being introduced and used. 

Papers that compare and contrast HFOs with other with other low and moderate GWP fluids such as ammonia, CO2, hydrocarbons and R32 will also be considered.

The event will take place at IET Birmingham Austin Court between 2 and 5 September 2018.

This conference will provide an opportunity for the scientists developing new working fluids to meet with the design engineers who provide products and the system installers who use them, together with representatives of the end-user community who get first-hand experience of these scientific and technical decisions. 

It will be a unique chance for these groups to interact in a forum specifically focused on the practical aspects of developing these new refrigerants.
