Environmental Friendly Cooling and Heating

by using the Innovative Zeolite/Water Adsorption Technology

Zeo-Tech has developed a new energy conversion process for the efficient generation and storage of heat and/or cooling power. Driven by a heat source, this process is solely based on the material zeolite and water and is therefore fully compatible with the most stringent environmental regulations. Up to 160% efficient.

Fundamentals of the Zeolite/Water Adsorption Technology

The natural mineral Zeolite has the property to attract (adsorb) water vapor and to incorporate it in its internal crystal lattice while releasing heat at the same time.

If this process proceeds in an evacuated (airless) environment the attraction of water by the zeolite is so forceful that the internal pressure drops dramatically. The remaining water in an attached vessel evaporates, cools down and freezes immediately due to the heat of evaporation. The resulting ice can be used for cooling and air conditioning while the simultaneously produced heat of adsorption within the zeolite tank can be utilized for heating. If a valve is included between the two vessels, the heat or cold production can be interrupted for any periods without loss of energy.

The first phase of this process proceeds up to the point when the zeolite is saturated with water. The reverse process is initiated by heating the zeolite at high temperatures in the second phase. The adsorbed water molecules are forced to evaporate (desorption). Condensation takes place in the water tank (condensor). The sequence of adsorption/desorption processes is completely reversible and can be repeated indefinitely.

Combined Heat and Power Systems

Using energy efficiently has become a goal across industries in the past decade. Rising energy prices, an increasingly competitive marketplace, and environmental regulation of harmful pollutant emissions have all incited commercial and industrial energy users to search out the most efficient and cleanest ways to use energy.
