The IIR’s Mission
The International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) has a global commitment to improving quality of life in a cost-effective and environmentally sustainable manner by disseminating refrigeration knowledge in all applications, regardless of the technology used.
We are active in numerous fields where refrigeration technology, development and research are essential. Our aim is to provide an information sharing forum for governments and experts from research and industry.
Key issues addressed by the IIR include: food safety, health, energy saving and energy efficiency, global warming and ozone depletion.
Who we are and what we do
The IIR is the only independent neutral intergovernmental science and technology organization present in the refrigeration sector.
A member organization, the IIR promotes knowledge of all refrigeration fields from cryogenics to air conditioning, including liquefied gas, refrigeration processes and equipment, the cold chain, refrigerants and heat pumps.
