Welcome to the 2023 ICR
WORD of welcome from the 2023 ICR president
On behalf of the Association Française du Froid (AFF) and all its members, I am honoured to invite you to the 26th International Congress of Refrigeration in Paris from 21st to 26th August 2023.
Founded in Paris in 1908, just like the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR), on the occasion of the first International Congress of Refrigeration, the AFF is particularly proud to again host this event which, held every four years, brings together the scientific and technical experts of refrigeration from all over the world.
Refrigeration is both ubiquitous in our world and indispensable to our society. The Covid 19 pandemic that we have been experiencing since the beginning of 2020 has clearly shown this. But this very useful refrigeration is also a major energy consumer and contributes significantly to the greenhouse effect. In the 21st century, refrigeration will either be sustainable or it won't be! This is why the organizing committee has decided to organize this congress under the theme “Towards efficient, controlled and smart Refrigeration”
We believe that today we can reverse the trend and make the benefits of refrigeration more important for the environment than its harms. By reducing food waste, ensuring the safety of perishable food and health products, enabling superconductivity and energy storage, improving living conditions, ... refrigeration will enable our society to be sustainable. We believe that we can build refrigeration with a positive impact.
The International Congress of Refrigeration 2023 is the world's largest gathering of scientists, experts, technicians and professionals in the field of refrigeration and air conditioning. It provides a unique forum to present and disseminate the results of research, development and innovation.
We invite you to come to Paris to present your work and to listen to and discuss the hundreds of presentations to be delivered by the best experts and scientists in the world.
The President of the French Association of Refrigeration
