ATLANTA — In light of recent action to amend the Montreal Protocol to phase down the production and consumption of HFCs globally, industry experts will share guidance on how to incorporate low-global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants at the ASHRAE 2017 Winter Conference.
“Providing technical expertise for ASHRAE’s members and their clients continues to be the core of the conference technical program,” said Leon Shapiro, conference chair. “Climate change will compel ASHRAE members to rethink HVACR for the future. In addition to sessions on low-GWP refrigerants, the technical program will also focus on the water-energy nexus and designing for maximum efficiency, energy efficiency and IAQ in industrial spaces, and achieving projected results after all the modeling is completed. The rich experience from the technical program will leave the attendees better prepared to deal with these issues as they advance their professional careers.”
