For World Refrigeration Day 2024, the Institute of Refrigeration Ireland is pleased to present an afternoon of celebration of the life and work of Lord Kelvin, William Thomson of Belfast. The event will take place in the newly redeveloped ‘The Kelvin’ building on the site at College Square East in Belfast where William Thompson was born.
The events centre around a talk on the extraordinary life and legacy of the man who became known as Lord Kelvin, whose name is forever associated with refrigeration and the temperature scale used to pinpoint Absolute Zero, the lowest possible temperature in the universe.
