8月25日上午8：30-12：00，主题为"Absorption Refrigeration Systems（低温制冷系统）"在北京国际会议中心306会议室召开。
Absorption refrigeration has a good many advantages and is one of the important developing fields in the refrigeration. A great progress of absorption refrigeration, including the developments of advanced absorption refrigeration theory and technology as well as applications, has been achieved in China recently. There are more than 20 institutes relating to the research of absorption refrigeration, such as Chinese Academy of Science, Zhejiang University, Xi’an Jiaotong University, Shanghai Jiaotong University, Southeast University, University of Shanghai for Science and Technology, The Chinese University of Hong Kong etc. The subjects of research involve almost all main and key aspects of absorption refrigeration. Some advanced absorption refrigeration cycles, such as an absorption refrigeration cycle at low temperatures as well as an absorption refrigeration cycle with new functions are originally proposed and studied. Much progress has been gained successfully. The investigation of heat and mass transfer enhancement and dynamic simulation for an absorption refrigeration system are also carried out. With regard to the application of absorption refrigeration systems, marvelous achievements have been obtained in mainland China. Many advanced types of Lithium Bromide absorption chillers have been manufactured on a large scale, including a direct-fired double-effect, hot-water-operated two-stage and waste-heat-operated chiller. Now, mainland China is the largest manufacturer of Lithium Bromide absorption chillers (heat pumps) in the world. In 2005, there are about 7000 units of Lithium Bromide absorption chillers produced there is twice as much as that in 1997. Besides the commercial and residential applications, Lithium Bromide absorption chillers (heat pumps) have been well applied in the industrial cases up to now.
