Book now for Gustav Lorentzen conference
The internationally acclaimed conference, taking place in Edinburgh from August 21-24, will showcase the latest developments in the field of natural working fluids and the related topics of sustainability and alternative cycles.
Among the 140 papers being presented are keynote speeches from Alexander von Bismarck of the Environmental Investigation Agency, Professor Guangming Chen of the Ningbo Institute of Technology, China, and UK consultant Ray Gluckman.
Alexander von Bismarck will look at where the domestic, industrial and commercial refrigeration sectors are on the road to the adoption of environmentally-benign refrigerants. His talk will focus on how mind sets and practices can be changed to aid the acceptance of sustainable practices in business.
Prof Chen’s talk will give insights into how China is addressing refrigerant issues such as phasing out HFC’s and moving to environmentally-acceptable refrigerants. He will also look at the Chinese decision-making process related to the future use of refrigerants both in industry and within government policy.
Ray Gluckman, a technical consultant specialising in refrigeration and climate change and a lead adviser to national governments, agency and the EC, will discuss the opportunities and barriers in adopting natural working fluids as well as how he believes those barriers could be overcome.
