Abstract
Environmental concerns regarding global warming and ozone depletion urge towards sustainable solutions for satisfying the increasing cooling demand. Adsorption cooling technology could form part of the solution since it can be driven by solar energy and industrial or vehicular waste heat, as well as it employs non ozone-destructive refrigerants. However, its low performance hinders its extensive development and commercialization. The design of the adsorption reactor is crucial for its performanc...
