Enabled by scientific and technological advances, mass production and mass consumption have helped build our modern society and comfortable lifestyles. However, we are now facing serious environmental problems. The air conditioning and refrigeration industry has been working on projects, including the development of alternative refrigerant technology, to address global environmental problems such as protecting the ozone layer and mitigating climate change. With the increased use of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), a potent greenhouse gas, environmentally friendly, next-generation refrigerants, as well as technology and infrastructure to prevent harmful gases from escaping into the atmosphere, are urgently required.

To reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) has been promoting the development of technology to apply new refrigerants to refrigeration and air conditioning equipment. As part of NEDO’s Development of Non-fluorinated Energy-saving Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Systems project, the 2010 International Symposium on Next-generation Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Technology was organized to advance climate change countermeasures.
