DuPont-R1234yf-(2)UK: The next IoR meeting will debate whether HFO refrigerants are the best long-term environmental solution.

With HFOs lined up for a pivotal role in a low GWP future, the debate is expected to tackle the arguments on either side of the synthetic v natural refrigerants argument.

Two members with strong views will lead the debate on January 14 at the CEREB building, London South Bank University. Honeywell engineering manager Nacer Achaichia will be presenting the case for HFOs, while Daniel Colborne, member of the UNEP Refrigeration Technical Options Committee (TOC) for the Montreal Protocol will be presenting the case against.

The networking session will begin at 17.00 with the debate beginning at 17.45.
