Refrigerants Review seeks to achieve one critical objective - to identify the ideal refrigerant, among those currently available in the GCC, for high-, medium- and low-temperature applications. Being organised by Climate Control Middle East magazine, the event will take place in UAE, a key hub for the construction of sustainable societies, where refrigeration and air conditioning are critical and essential.
