Registration open for conference on refrigeration in marine, off-shore fisheries
ASHRAE, in partnership with other international organizations, has opened registration for a conference on Sustainable Management of Refrigeration Technologies in Marine and Off-Shore Fisheries Sectors.
The event is set for April 6-8, 2017, in Bangkok, Thailand.
The conference is co-organized by United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), ASHRAE, the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) and United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), with support from the Government of the Kingdom of Thailand and the Department of Industrial Works.
“ASHRAE brings its technical background in refrigerating and air-conditioning technologies to the conference and seeks to contribute to the policies presented by representatives from UN agencies and government officials,” ASHRAE President Tim Wentz said. “This conference seeks to advance the transition to new refrigerants, especially for developing economy countries.”
The conference examines current practices and future developments in the management of existing systems and trends toward longer-term energy efficient, climate and ozone friendly alternatives in commercial on-board mobile marine refrigeration. Technologies in these sectors have a critical role in meeting the phase out targets specified by the Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol and ensuring sustainable environmental practices in their RAC applications, according to ASHRAE.
