The Institute of Refrigeration (IOR) will hold its annual conference at the show for the second time in 2018.
The 2016 conference explored how energy and emission saving in component and system design was being achieved. It focused on the impact of refrigerant choice (driven by new F Gas Regulation), design standards (changing requirements of European Safety Standards, such as the proposed revisions to EN378), meeting and exceeding efficiency targets (driven by the Ecodesign Directive), and international policy (proposed amendments to Montreal Protocol). It also looked at the opportunities offered by the role of new emerging markets (recycled/recovery/efficiency inspections, overseas developments and facilitating new technologies.)
The 2018 programme will be announced shortly.
