FRIENDSHIP at the International Congress of Refrigeration 2023

The 26th International Congress of Refrigeration (ICR) took place in Paris from 21st to 25th August 2023 with around 1 000 participants.

Organized by the Association Française du Froid (AFF) and held every four years, this is the world’s largest gathering of scientists and professionals in the field of refrigeration and air conditioning. This year the selected theme was “Towards efficient, controlled and smart Refrigeration”; therefore, experts could present and disseminate their results of research, development, and innovation in this field.

In the technical paper session 49 “Sorption systems: equipments” , Hélène Demasles, Anouk Muller, and Hai Trieu Phan presented their paper entitled: “Development of NH3/H2O absorption chillers for negative cooling in industrial solar systems”, written in the framework of FRIENDSHIP.

During the presentation, the whole FRIENDSHIP solution was presented to the public, who was also encouraged to explore the e-learning videos created by INES PFE.

The paper focuses on the work carried out by the CEA-Liten team within Work Package 4, in particular the conception and manufacturing of the 10kW ammonia-water chiller prototype. After a technical highlight of the GAX architecture, the results obtained during the characterization test campaign were presented and discussed with peers.

Big thanks to our CEA partners who represented FRIENDSHIP at the 26th International Congress of Refrigeration!
