The IOR has recently signed an agreement with the Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ISHRAE) outlining a framework of closer cooperation. The agreement includes joint use of resources such as the IOR Library and attendance to events and conferences of mutual interest.

After signing the agreement, IOR President Steve Gill commented “I’m really pleased to be launching this co-operative agreement with our friends and colleagues at ISHRAE and I’m sure they will make good use of the wealth of technical information the IOR can share, especially on the rapidly changing topic of refrigerants. I’m equally pleased that ISHRAE is so enthusiastic about sharing their events and activities with IOR members and look forward to working with them more closely over the coming years”

Subramaniam Chandrasekaran President ISHRAE added “ISHRAE is pleased to enter into this MOU with Institute of Refrigeration based in the UK. We are confident that this association will bring in a lot of value to the members in reaching out to the best design and operation practices of refrigeration system from the enriched Institute in UK. A lot of opportunity also exists in sharing of technical articles that can be shared through the journals that both the Societies bring forth and that can really spiral off into some research activities and interaction between the world of academia in the areas of natural working fluids and newer refrigerants. We are really looking forward to having a very close association with the IOR in the years to come.”
