The ninth biennial conference will focus on the latest research results and advances related to the use of natural refrigerants in refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump systems. With over 40 technical experts from around the world presenting their findings on CO2 at the technical sessions it is clear where this year’s focus will lie.

The conference boasts a broad range of international speakers who are the leading professionals in the field. Not only will this allow for an exciting two day lecture series but will also provide a platform for attendees to discuss the newest trends in research, technologies and best practices relating to energy efficiency of a variety of HVAC&R (but mainly CO2) technologies and the reduction of carbon emissions.

A selection of speakers

To give a small taste of what will be on offer has selected a few speakers:

- CO2 - A refrigerant from the past with prospects of being one of the main refrigerants in the future, Petter Neksa a senior scientist of SINTEF, Norway.
- Latest developments in compressors and refrigeration systems using the refrigerant R744 (CO2), Manuel Fröschle & Harald Kaiser, of Bock Kältemaschienen, Germany.
- Maximization of the SPF through optimised control of a CO2 heat pump, Sebastian Ott from Stiebel Eltron, Germany
- The evolution of CO2 refrigeration from trial to roll out in Tesco stores, Andy Campbell, Head of Refrigeration Environmental, Tesco
- CO2 Supermarket Refrigeration System for Hot Climates, Silvia Minetto & Sergio Girotto from the University of Padova, Italy.

ARBS exhibition running in parallel

The Gustav Lorentzen conference will be hosted simultaneously with the ARBS exhibition, which is the largest HVAC&R event in the southern hemisphere. This exhibition attracts over 10,000 visitors and will focus on best practice sustainability, energy efficiency and compliance.

The organisers are looking for a rounded programme and have organised a variety of guided tours to CO2 facilities and infrastructure around Sydney. A tour has also been arranged to a cutting-edge ethylene-propane cascade refrigeration system. With a capacity of over 600 kW, operating down to -100°C, with compressor drive motors up to 1600 kW it is understood to be the lowest temperature oil-flooded screw compressor operating in the world.

About Gustav Lorentzen

The conference is named in honour of Norwegian Scientist and engineer Gustav Lorentzen who rediscovered how CO2 could be used as a refrigerant in a simple and efficient way in heating and cooling applications.
