The International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) and AIRAH are proud to announce the 9th IIR Gustav Lorentzen Conference on Natural Working Fluids, to be held in Sydney from April 12-14 2010.

The 9th IIR Gustav Lorentzen Conference: natural refrigerants – real alternatives, focuses on the latest research results and advances related to the use of natural refrigerants in refrigeration, air conditioning, heat pump systems and more.

This is the first time this one of a kind conference will be held the southern hemisphere, following previous successful events in Denmark (Copenhagen) 2008, Norway (Trondheim) 2006, UK (Glasgow) 2004, China (Guangzhou) 2002, USA (Purdue) 2000, Norway (Oslo) 1998, Denmark (Aarhus) 1996 and Germany (Hannover) 1994.

The conference will bring together the worlds leading professionals in the field and they will discuss the latest in research, technologies, case studies, practical applications, the future of natural refrigerants, world’s best practice relating to energy efficiency, reduction of carbon emissions and more.

Join world leaders in the field to discuss the latest research results and advances related to the use of natural working fluids in different types of systems and application areas.

Commissions involved: B1 and B2 with E1 and E2
