NANOCOOL

Project Description

The nanoCOOL goal was to build on latest advancements in thermally conductive polymer nano-composites and liquid desiccants (halide solution as LiCl) to develop an innovative hybrid liquid desiccant cooling system in the range 100-200 kW which could be able to be cost-effectively operated both in residential and commercial buildings, combining the advantages of liquid desiccants with a traditional central air conditioning system. This system simultaneously uses the evaporative cooling heat and condensation heat of a compression-type refrigerator. In the nanoCOOL concept, waste heat from the condenser is utilized for regeneration of the desiccants. No external heat sources are used for regeneration. This mechanism greatly enhances the total efficiency of this system.
