    • heat pumps
    • power cycles
  •  Responsible use
    • leak prevention
    • efficiency of operation

The conference will focus on HFO refrigerants however papers may include comparisons of HFO refrigerants with other low and moderate GWP fluids such as ammonia, CO2, hydrocarbons and R32.

For the purpose of the conference the definition of low, medium and high GWP will be as outlined in the UNEP RTOC Reports 2014.  GWP below 300 is low GWP over 1000 is high.
