First held in 1908, the International Congress of Refrigeration presented by the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) is now the world’s leading event for research and industry in the HVACR sector, cryogenics included.
From 24th – 30th August, 2019, Montreal, Canada, birthplace of the 1987 Montreal Protocol, will host the 25th IIR International Congress of Refrigeration – ICR 2019.
The international meeting will provide the ideal platform to take stock of the historic Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol, which will enter into force in January 2019, bringing about a global phase-down of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).
Covering all fields of refrigeration, ICR 2019 is expected to surpass the success of previous congresses and will be a unique opportunity for researchers and engineers from all over the world to meet, exchange and publish the results of their research. With nearly 1,000 abstracts received, the 25th event in the series is set to welcome its largest audience to date.
The congress will be organised under the theme “Refrigeration for Human Health and Future Prosperity” and will focus on the current global issues at the centre of international concern, including food security, health, energy saving and energy efficiency, the reduction of global warming and the protection of the ozone layer.
In line with its corporate objective to promote knowledge of refrigeration and associated technologies and applications on a global scale, the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) has published a new Informatory Note on ‘The Impact of the Refrigeration Sector on Climate Change’.
The International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR), an independent intergovernmental science and technology based organisation promoting refrigeration knowledge, presented five cold chain technology briefs at a side event dedicated to the cold chain.
