Conference sessions are planned, and paper are requested on subjects related to the basic engineering science, design and applications of refrigeration, air-conditioning and heat pump systems, as well as heat-to-power cycles, based on natural working fluids, including:

  • Process, cycle, system and component development with natural refrigerants
  • Vapor compression systems: NH3, hydrocarbons, CO2 and water
  • Gas cycles and sorption systems
  • Heat-to-power systems
  • Applications
  • Fundamentals: Properties, lubrication, chemistry
  • Heat transfer fluids
  • Heat transfer and heat exchangers, compressors and other components
  • Energy efficiency, operational experience and economy
  • Safety with respect to flammable, toxic and high-pressure fluids
