A research group at the Politecnico di Torino and National Institute of Metrological Research has completed a study that shows it may be possible to create a device that can generate a cooling load without using electricity. The key idea within this device is to use simple water and common salt rather than use chemicals which can negatively impact the environment. This idea was based off of evaporation rather than pumps and compressors. Since the device will be simple to create, it also won’t cost much to produce as it only requires a few different materials. This technology could alter the cooling system markets forever.
- A study by a research group at Politecnico di Torino is suggesting that it may be possible to cool a building without using electricity.
- The idea is to use water and salt instead of chemicals to help protect the environment and has been based off the idea of evaporation.
- This device won’t cost a lot because it only requires a few different materials and could be great for rural areas.
