The IIR International Conference on Sustainability and the Cold Chain, which takes place online from 11 to 13 April, will feature two free-to-attend workshops, as part of its programme of presentations and hosted discussions.

The open-access workshops, one focusing on carbon reduction opportunities for the food chain, the other on projects on clean and efficient refrigeration solutions for food and healthcare sectors in developing countries are part of a much-wider programme looking at cold chain innovation and developments in refrigeration technology and design.

The full paid programme, which features over 50 presentations, hosted discussions and workshops is available from £152+VAT for full delegates (discounted rates for students and delegates from Article 5 countries under the Montreal Protocol). It will provide an in-depth overview of cold chain innovation, developments in refrigeration technology and design, and examine what is being done to build a sustainable cold chain to address key UN sustainable development goals. In addition to conference sessions, online networking opportunities, and published conference proceedings, paying delegates will be able to revisit any presentations thanks to the on-demand library of conference recordings available until the end of 2022.
