International Institute of Refrigeration

The International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR, www.iifiir.org) is the only independent intergovernmental organization which promotes knowledge of refrigeration and associated technologies that are necessary for life in a science-based, cost-effective and environmentally sustainable manner including:

  • Food quality and safety from farm to consumer
  • Comfort in homes and commercial buildings
  • Health products and services
  • Cryology
  • Energy efficiency
  • Use of non-ozone depleting and low global warming refrigerants in a safe manner.

IIR congresses are milestone events held once every 4 years, bringing together very large numbers of refrigeration stakeholders from all parts of the world. ICR2011 in Prague will be a highly successful event. Keep updated on the programme, calls for papers, registration, technical tours and a wide range of historic and exciting places to visit by exploring this site regularly.
