International Information Centre for Sustainable Refrigeration and Heat Pump Technology - (ICST)
The main idea is that ICST shall represent an international neutral technological un-political and transparent platform for everybody, who deals with all types of refrigerant applications such as refrigeration systems, heat pumps, Air Conditioning at a political, scientific and practical level.
ICST shall work towards the establishment of a global alliance for “the right selection of refrigerant for the application” with regard to environmental, financial, technical and social aspects, including the promotion of environmentally friendly refrigerants with minimum influence on the ozone layer and with minimum global warming, meaning natural refrigerants such as HC, NH3, CO2, etc. Synthetic refrigerants such as CFC, HCFC, HFC or HFO could also be “the right selection of refrigerant for the application”, but the aim is to reduce the amount of applications, where natural refrigerants cannot be used, to a minimum.
The primary tool to meet the mission and objective is to give everybody worldwide access to updated network and knowledge on this international web-portal – in English language.
