Freon-Free AC

02005-07-25 | Uncategorized | 1 comment

Three teenagers have come with an idea that would eliminate the use of Freon in automobile air-conditioning systems by relying on the Peltier effect. With their invention, Tyler Lyon, Daniel Winegar and Chad Thornley won the first-ever ‘Ricoh Sustainable Development Award’ in May. Their device taps into the car’s electrical system, using fans to blow hot air through five Peltier chips and then releasing cold air.

Excellent. Don’t just be the future, create the future.
