IIR provides cold chain technology briefs

Feb. 19, 2018
Learn what briefs were presented by the International Institute of Refrigeration at an event dedicated to the cold chain.

The International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) organized a side event dedicated to the cold chain at the recent Inter-Regional Thematic Technical Workshops and Regional Network Meetings for National Ozone Officers. During the side event, IIR experts presented five cold chain technology briefs.

The IIR commissioned several of its experts in their capacity as presidents of an IIR section (Jacques Guilpart), an IIR commission (Judith Evans and Richard Lawton) and as an IIR member (Paul de Larminat) to produce five cold chain technology briefs in partnership with the United Nations Environment OzonAction.

These briefs, which were distributed to the national ozone officers during the international meeting, summarize the different cold chain sectors with the goal to assist national ozone units and local stakeholders gain insight on the various segments, technology trends and issues related to each sector.

With more than 70 participants, the IIR side event dedicated to the cold chain was the ideal forum for the IIR experts to present related driving policies, the current refrigerants used and potential alternatives, including the technical challenges, as emphasised in the briefs.

Covered in the briefs are:

•Refrigeration in Food Production and Processing

•Cold Storage and Refrigerated Warehouses

•Commercial, Professional and Domestic Refrigeration

•Transport Refrigeration

•Fishing Vessel Application

The cold chain technology briefs can be downloaded on the IIR website at www.iifiir.org.
