Event is organised in anticipation of the Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol

 

In response to a request made by the UAE government, AHRI and organisations like ASHRAE-UAE, UNEP and UNIDO are holding the 5th Symposium on Alternative Refrigerants for High-Ambient Countries in Dubai, on the 31st of October. Sharing information about the event, AHRI’s Vice President for International Affairs, Jim Walters said that the forum will be held prior to the Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol, which will also be held in Dubai.

Walters explained that following last year’s 4th Symposium, organisers had elected not to schedule an event for 2015 because of the planned Montreal Protocol meetings. However, given the increased interest in high-ambient-related issues with regard to alternative refrigerants in the MENA region – expressed particularly by the UAE government – the groups decided to go for a one-day focused event on the issue, believing that it may be useful, Walter said. Previous symposia had run for three days.

A detailed programme, time, and venue are yet to be determined, Walters noted, adding that AHRI will release further information as it becomes available.
