AIRAH is seeking abstracts for its Refrigeration 2019 conference to be held in Melbourne from March 25-26, 2019.

AIRAH CEO Tony Gleeson, said the HFC phase-down is having a huge impact as the industry looks to switch to low-GWP refrigerants.

“At the same time we’ve seen refrigerant management highlighted as the number one solution to reverse global warming, which has brought mainstream attention to what is usually a specialist topic," he said.

“We’re also accumulating better data on the refrigeration stock in Australia and identifying ways to make it more efficient.

"It’s an exciting time for the sector.”

The conference committee is calling for abstracts on subjects such as:

The HFC phase-down and the emergence of low-GWP refrigerants – synthetic and natural

Future thinking, refrigerant inventory reduction and disposal, and the path towards carbon neutrality by 2050

The evolution of refrigeration equipment including heat pumps, walk-in
coolroom solutions, and transcritical CO2 systems

Risk management associated with the use of flammable refrigerants

Legislation, standards, licensing and/or training.

The committee is also keen to hear ideas for case studies and site visit locations in and around the Melbourne area.

Abstracts should be emailed to by Friday, November 30, 2018.
