    Abstract

    To provide thermal comfort to the human being many types of cooling technologies are available in the market. These technologies are more essential in the region where the average ambient temperature is high. But every system has some limitations especially for environmental aspect and energy consumption. Open literature shows the available commercial cooling technology used almost 45% of electricity consumed in a house. To keep the system running a lot of fossil fuels need to be burned as a result the volume of greenhouse gases into the air increases. This study introduces a new technology which is emerging as viable alternatives of conventional vapor-compression systems and is known as adsorption cooling system. This system is environment friendly since it uses natural refrigerants and it is driven by low temperature waste heat or solar energy that is why it can solve the existing challenge of global warming and energy crisis.
