Abstract

The "Refrigerants for the 21st Century" conferece was the third refrigerants conference jointly organized by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The conferences in 1989 and 1993 covered technical issues related to the implementation of ozone-safe refirgerants. With global warming beginning to replace ozone depletion as the world's most significant environmental problem, the 1997 conference was related to both ozone depletion and global warming. The goal of the conference was to review available air-conditioning and refrigeration technologies to assess their suitability for the years to come in view of the two global environmental problems.
