World Refrigeration Day Logo

Industry associations and expert bodies have joined in setting up World Refrigeration Day. The worldwide celebration will begin on June 26, 2019, as a yearly event.

World Refrigeration Day day is to bring awareness and understanding to the general public. It will demonstrate the part that HVAC&R businesses play in present-day life.

Associations from nations around the globe have all shown their support.

RACHP and HVAC&R associations around the globe will embrace a scope of activities. The announcement follows the personal crusade of well-known industry figure Steve Gill. He concedes that the possibility of an industry day may not be new but the gaining of a consensus for a fixed date globally is.

“Refrigeration has such a long and fascinating history full of inventors, engineering pioneers, scientists, and industrial entrepreneurs from around the world, all who deserve to be recognised and remembered for their valuable contribution.

With such a long and rich history, agreeing upon a date has proven to be challenging at a national level, let alone an international one.

Yet, the industry has united in its desire to raise its profile to the general public for all the right reasons and so we were able to build solidarity upon many common goals and finally agree on a date.”

The term ‘refrigeration’ is frequently used in its widest sense. The procedure, accomplishing and keeping up a required temperature underneath that of its environment. The process, achieving and maintaining a required temperature below that of its surroundings. An example of refrigeration is the preservation and distribution of perishable food products. Refrigeration systems are used for providing personal comfort by means of air conditioning.

HVAC&R technologies and applications have evolved out of human need. Yet, it remains a frustration for those working within the industry. It is not recognised that modern life could not exist without it. A lack of appreciation by the wider society of the skill and knowledge used by industry experts.
