Engineering the Cold Chain: Thermal Cooling Solutions, 13 November 2019, London

Time is running out to secure your place at the Institution’s Engineering the Cold Chain seminar, taking place on 13 November at One Birdcage Walk in London.

With the UK’s 2050 zero-carbon target and with the cold chain responsible for 2.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions, attend this event to address the urgent need to consider more efficient ways of cooling.

Adapt current systems with developments in thermal energy storage and learn about incorporating renewable technology to prepare for the UK’s zero-carbon future. Hear lessons learned on the start of the process through to efficient transportation to the fridge shelf at its final destination.

Join this event to:

  • Discuss the engineering challenges of the cold chain with a variety of industries including farming, supermarket, medical and domestic refrigeration
  • Improve the efficiency of the cold chain and deliver ROI for your organisation by hearing case studies on best practice for current refrigeration optimisation
  • Gain insight into the latest cutting-edge cooling technologies to implement in order to achieve a zero-carbon cold chain
  • Learn about how changing F-gas refrigerant regulation will impact your current cold chain processes
  • Network with senior cold chain and temperature control leaders in the supply chain, refrigeration engineers, technical services and engineering directors as well as experts in cooling solutions from both industry and academia

Key programme highlights:

  • Hear about Unilever’s journey reducing their carbon footprint in the ice cream division
  • Stay up to date with developments in phase change material use for cold chain transportation from the University of Birmingham
  • Learn about pre-cooling processes incorporating solar power from Solar Polar
  • Star Technical Services discuss their work in adapting to using natural refrigerants
  • Gain a greater understanding of the commercial and domestic implications of magnetocaloric cooling from Camfridge
