An impressive 1,000 abstracts received for the 25th IIR International Congress of Refrigeration
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 August 24-30, 2019, Montreal (Canada), birthplace of the 1987 Montreal Protocol, will host the 25th IIR InternationalCongress of Refrigeration - ICR 2019.
The international meeting will provide, among others, the ideal platform to take stock of the historic Kigali Amendment tothe Montreal Protocol, which will enter into force in January 2019, bringing about a global phase-down ofhydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).
Covering all fields of refrigeration, ICR 2019 is expected to surpass the success of previous congresses, and will be a uniqueopportunity for researchers and engineers from all over the world to meet, exchange and publish the results of theirresearch. 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 onthe current global issues at the centre of international concern, including food security, health, energy saving and energyefficiency, the reduction of global warming and the protection of the ozone layer.
The International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) is an independent intergovernmental science and technology basedorganisation promoting refrigeration knowledge and associated technologies that improve quality of life in a cost-effectiveand environmentally sustainable manner including:
- Food quality and safety from farm to consumer
- Comfort in homes and commercial buildings
- Health products and services
- Low temperature technology and liquefied gas technology
- Energy efficiency
- Use of non-ozone depleting and low global warming refrigerants in a safe manner.
