A wealth of new research and technological developments on CO2 as a refrigerant in centralised commercial refrigeration, heat pumps, glass door merchandisers and data centre cooling was presented at the 11th biennial Gustav Lorentzen conference on natural refrigerants. The event provided valuable insight into current and upcoming technology trends for all alternative refrigerants. Whilst CO2 stole the show, R744 research continues to focus on improving

Organised by the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) in cooperation with the Chinese Association of Refrigeration (CAR) in Hangzhou, China on 31 August - 2 September 2014, the Gustav Lorentzen (GL2014) conference updated participants on the most recent progress related to the use of natural working fluids. As in previous years, it appears that the most active area of natural refrigerant research continues to be CO2, which is being applied to an increasing extent by the refrigeration and heat pump industry around the world.
