International experts from academia and industry will meet in the outskirts of Washington, D.C. to share the latest information on the development of eco-friendly refrigerants. Presentations will cover a wide scope of research on thermophysical properties and transfer processes of refrigerants and provide an opportunity to analyze the state-of-the-art developments in the sector. With current refrigeration and airconditioning products contributing to climate change, this conference aims to outline the future perspectives and challenges of the field as we move toward solutions that minimize the impact of refrigeration on the global environment.

Organized every four years, the conference is being held in person for the first time since 2017, and will offer exciting opportunities for collaboration and sharing, as well as the opportunity to tour University of Maryland facilities. The University of Maryland is home to the Center for Environmental Energy Engineering and the state-of-the-art Daikin Energy Innovation Lab.
