The divisiveness of the presidential campaign on top of what was already a difficult political climate in Washington means pushing through any kind of legislation this year will be highly unlikely, though that doesn’t necessarily mean the trends aren’t moving in the right direction for ammonia and other natural refrigerants.
A total of 148 exhibitors showed off their latest advances in all types of industrial refrigeration at the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration (IIAR) 2016 Industrial Refrigeration Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, Florida. Here are a few of the highlights.
An essential guide for the safe design and operation of ammonia refrigeration systems

The new American National Standard for the safe design of closed-circuit ammonia refrigeration systems, ANSI/IIAR 2-2014, sets the minimum requirements for industry compliance and adherence to U.S. codes and regulations and is “significantly different to previous releases,” noted David Blackhurst, director of Star Technical Solutions.
From a regulatory standpoint, the next two years promise to be active for the ammonia refrigeration industry, according to Lowell Randel, vice president government and legal affairs, Global Cold Chain Alliance.
The world is moving toward natural refrigerants. That was the message from the leadership of the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration (IIAR) at the 2015 IIAR Industrial Refrigeration Conference and Exhibition in San Diego.
When refrigeration is looked at from a global perspective, it is easy to discover the haves and the have not’s. Developed countries like the United States have refrigeration systems that protect food at every step along the cold chain. But in developing countries, that refrigeration aspect is often missing in most every step.
Developed countries have refrigeration systems that protect food until it is delivered to customers. But, in developing countries, that refrigeration aspect is often missing at almost every step along the cold chain.
