project description

The use of conventional air conditioning and refrigeration technologies causes global warming through the emissions of greenhouse gases. This research develops an innovative air-conditioning and refrigeration system based on magnetic nanofluids. The proposed system has a great potential to provide enhanced performance properties mainly with respect to heat transfer. This means that the system will be more efficient and environmentally- friendly by avoiding emissions of greenhouse gases. The project cooperates with industry to bring this new type of cooling to the market in future.
