This year’s , the 43rd international congress is dedicated to the current topics from the broad HVAC&R field, primarily focusing on buildings as main energy consumers and the use of renewable sources and the most up-to-date products used in HVAC&R systems.

The topics include refrigerants which substitute conventional ones that are being phased out due to their environmental impact. The district heating and cooling systems remain the inevitable topic of this gathering of HVAC&R professionals.
