GHG Reduction - Air to Air Heat Exchanger for Cooling

Compressor-based air conditioning systems and the ubiquitous air coolers are the two known alternatives for human comfort cooling that are used in the commercial, industrial and domestic segments. However, AC systems consume considerable power and thus have a big carbon footprint. Air-to-air heat exchanger for cooling developed by Toro Cooling Systems Pvt Ltd , is an innovation, that saves 50-80 per cent energy compared to  AC systems. It offers sustainable and energy-effi cient air conditioning alternatives and uses water as a counter-current for direct and indirect heat exchange to cool the air. It is particularly suitable for tropical countries like India. Perfectly conditioned air requires an optimum level of humidity and temperature. Toro Cooling Systems Pvt Ltd is based on sound thermodynamic principles that use both indirect and direct evaporative cooling technology, to maintain a comfortable range of temperature and humidity. This reduces the energy consumption of air conditioners and eliminates the use of chemical refrigerants. This system can also be used in combination with a conventional air conditioner to provide required cooling in extreme weather conditions. The technology is designed in a manner that it is capable of providing comfort cooling in a wide range of situations, like offi ce premises and some industrial applications such as food processing units, hatcheries and pharmaceuticals.

If this innovative solution could have wider application in the tropical regions, it has the potential to annually reduce GHG emissions by 21 million tonnes by 2022.
