ATLANTA - In recognition of shared technical interests, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the Chinese Association of Refrigeration (CAR) have agreed to work together to promote the interests of HVACR professionals. A memorandum of understanding has been signed between the two associations.

"The best way to solve the problems facing the building industry today is by working together," said Lee Burgett, ASHRAE president. "Carrying out these objectives will allow ASHRAE and CAR to find solutions to those problems, such as energy conservation, improving the quality of life for people around the world."
