The prices of energy have been increasing exponentially worldwide. Industrial Refrigeration is one of the most energy consuming sector. What if a refrigeration system is designed which uses no energy or minimal amount of energy?

The solution lies in absorption refrigeration system.

The absorption refrigerator is a refrigerator that utilizes a source to provide the energy needed to drive the cooling system. Absorption refrigerators are a popular alternative to regular compressor refrigerators where electricity is unreliable, costly, or unavailable, where noise from the compressor is problematic, or where surplus heat is available.

The group looked into the prospects of an Absorption Refrigeration System but the project could not take off because of lack of guidance and finance.
