There is still time to submit your abstracts for the inaugural IIR International Conference on the Application of HFO Refrigerants with an extended deadline of Oct. 20. 

This three-day conference will provide up-to-date information and technical papers on the experience and use of the new family of A2L refrigerants known as hydrofluroolefins (HFOs). Papers exploring and reporting on the conference themes are invited, themes include:

  • characteristics of HFO refrigerants; 
  • design issues for systems, components, and controls;
  • safety issues (flammability risk analysis, design considerations, operating experience);
  • legislation, codes of practice, and standards; and
  • responsible use and environmental considerations 

The organizers would particularly welcome abstracts for papers which showcase UK and international innovation and practical case studies of how HFO refrigeration technology is being introduced and used.  Papers that compare and contrast HFOs with other with other low- and moderate-global warming potential (GWP) fluids such as ammonia, CO2, hydrocarbons, and R32 will also be considered.

The event will take place at IET Birmingham Austin Court Sept. 2-5, 2018. This conference will provide an opportunity for the scientists developing new working fluids to meet with the design engineers who provide products and the system installers who use them along with representatives of the end-user community who get first-hand experience of these scientific and technical decisions.  It will be a unique chance for these groups to interact in a forum specifically focused on the practical aspects of developing these new refrigerants

To be considered for the conference program, submit a 150 word abstract at by Oct. 20.
