Sustainability: tomorrow’s challenges and solutions

The conference will take place at the Edinburgh Conference Centre, Heriot- Watt University, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK. It will address fundamental issues about what the vision for the future of natural working fluids in 2016 and beyond should be, along with showcasing the latest developments in the application of natural working fluids. The programme will encourage the development of the industry's thinking about how natural refrigerants are used as new issues become increasingly important. The programme will have parallel streams exploring natural working fluids, sustainability with natural working fluids and alternative cycles and topics will include


  • Components
  • Heat transfer and fluid flow
  • Supermarket technologies
  • Replacing existing systems
  • New applications
  • Heat recovery
  • CHP, trigeneration
  • Effective use of heat pumps
  • Using natural resources
  • Passive cooling
  • Non-conventional refrigeration systems such as secondary coolants
  • Ice slurries
  • Sorption systems
  • Evaporative cooling
