Gustav Lorentzen Natural Working Fluids Conference

This year J & E Hall is proud to be the platinum sponsor for the 12th IIR Gustav Lorentzen Natural Working Fluids Conference. The event will take place at the purpose built conference centre at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh on the 21st-24th August 2016.

The conference will attract an international audience of delegates with an interest in natural working fluids and bring together around 2,000 professionals working in the field. This includes end users, stakeholders, system owners and operators, academic researchers, industrialists, policy makers, contractors, commissioning and operation installers, designers, buildings services consultants, manufacturers of components and technology providers.

The event, previously held in China, Australia and the USA, will be focusing on the future of natural refrigerants such as hydrocarbons, water, air, CO2 and ammonia, along with their latest applications geared towards energy saving and maximum respect for the environment.

The programme includes over 120 speeches, held over the three day event, with interactive sessions and debates on how we can ensure a sustainable future for natural working fluids in the face of the increasingly challenging global, political, legislative and economic environment.

The conference programmes will feature three themes;
- Natural Working Fluids
- Sustainability with Natural Working Fluids
- Alternative Cycles

Over 150 papers have been received for the conference – sharing a vision of the future of natural working fluids and showcasing practical case studies of how new sustainable technologies are being applied.
