Industry experts will update visitors on hot topics facing the cooling industry as part of the free seminar programme at the ACR Show 2014, being held at the NEC from 11 to 13 February.
The Institute of Refrigeration (IOR) is joining forces with the Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Industry Board (ACRIB) to give an insight into the latest proposals to control the use of HFC refrigerants across the EU, and the implications for the industry.
