  • Chilling out: the road to greener air conditioning

    Air-conditioning units that use renewable energy, such as solar power or cold seawater, are approaching the commercial production stage - a milestone that could reduce climate change and help phase-out greenhouses gases known as HCFCs (Hydrochlorofluorocarbons). This was one of the key outcomes of a conference held in Cairo, Egypt last week to review global technology trends in the air ...

  • EPA Approves New Coolant for Car Air Conditioning

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued final approval for a new refrigerant for use in motor vehicle air conditioning systems that does not deplete the ozone layer, which helps protect the environment and people’s health.

  • `B-COOL` EU project developing eco-friendly car air conditioning

    The EU-funded B-COOL project, set to end in 2008, has been developing a new, high-efficiency, low-cost air-conditioning system for small, A and B segment cars, using CO2 as a refrigerant. Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), once the replacement of choice for ozone-harmful chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) in refrigeration and air conditioning systems, have no known effects on the ozone layer, but do contribute ...

  • EPA Approves New Climate-Friendly Refrigerants

    As part of President Obama’s Climate Action Plan, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is increasing the options for refrigerants used in various kinds of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment in the United States that offer better climate protection without harming the ozone layer. This final action addresses refrigerants under the Climate Action Plan that calls on ...

  • Cooling by sound - a new way to lower energy costs of air conditioning

    The Palo Alto Research Center (PARC),  is developing a new form of refrigeration that could be three times as efficient as existing forms. It's based on thermoacoustics, a technology that works for cooling at extremely low temperatures (such as for liquefying gases), but hasn't been used for cooling at room temperature (what you need for household refrigeration). The ...
