Why is it important?

Phasing out of environmentally harmful thermofluids and the introduction of new generation refrigerants demanded the need for their feasibility assessment in energy systems.


This work has led to novel industry relevant techniques (UK patent: GB2540670), further research £70.5K (grants 8399, 7017), start-up projected revenue £1 million/year, joint research with University of Sciences and Technology, Algeria, University Miguel Hernández Spain, National Research Council of Italy-Institute, Laboratory of Environmental Engineering-University Badji Mokhtar Annaba Algeria, Ampère Laboratory-Ecole Centrale de Lyon France.
