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.
ACCA standard recognized by ANSI; MCAA to host Pre-Fab Seminar; HVAC Excellence to host National HVACR Educators and Trainers Conference; RSES to host 75th annual conference and HVACR Technology Expo; IIAR to hold 2012 Industrial Refrigeration Conference and Exhibition; Women in HVACR announces 2012 executive board.
Now that the industry is all confused about HCFC refrigerants, it might be time to pay a bit more attention to another refrigerant that has been around a long time, doesn’t cost all that much, and has a solid track record.
