Ammonia Systems of the Future

A two-day international conference focusing on the use of ammonia - a very effective, environmentally friendly and inexpensive refrigerant, which has been utilised for many years and with great success in industrial refrigeration equipment.

Ammonia is a very efficient, environmentally friendly and quite inexpensive refrigerant, which successfully has been used in industrial refrigeration systems for decades. Currently, safety is becoming a big issue and legislation is being strengthened, which calls for new solutions in system design. Especially a reduction of the ammonia charge and an efficient operation are at the core of discussions.

The two-day conference introduces you to international speakers, who will present the latest ideas and applications in the field.

During the conference, you will also have the opportunity to visit two Danish companies that operate with ammonia.

Join the debate during the workshop on day 1, which puts focus on current safety requirements and legislation regarding ammonia as a refrigerant. Some of the questions for the workshop could be: How do we relate to the introduced trends and safety measures in the different countries? Which consequences does a strichter regulation has on existing and new ammonia plants? How can we play a part in these current trends?

Finally, you are invited on a guided tour of the CO2 and NH3 Laboratory at Danish Technological Institute.
