Annual Conference 2016 "Emissions, Energy and Eco Design"


18th February 2016, Hall 9, National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham

On 18th February the Institute of Refrigeration annual conference will explore how energy and emission saving in component and system design are being achieved. It will focus on the impact of refrigerant choice - driven by new F Gas Regulation design standards-  the changing requirements of European Safety Standards such as the proposed revisions to EN378 meeting and exceeding efficiency targets -driven by the Ecodesign Directive international policy- proposed amendments to Montreal Protocol opportunities offered by the role of new emerging markets (recycled/recovery/efficiency inspections, overseas developments and facilitating new technologies).

The conference will take place during the ACR Show and the programme has been designed to allow time for delegates to visit the exhibition. The event will start at 10.30am and conclude at 2.30pm. All attendees will receive a complete set of conference proceedings including summary papers, related documents and standards where available and copies of the presentations. A light buffet lunch is also included.
