Build4People The Build4People Project aims to research and promote sustainable building and urban development practices in Cambodia as well as pathways towards their realization.
CAMaRSEC – Climate-adapted Material Research for the Socio-economic Context in Vietnam The German-Vietnamese project CAMaRSEC is supporting the implementation and further development of energy-efficient, resource-efficient and sustainable construction practices. Based on interdisciplinary problem analysis and fundamental research, effective infrastructures for research, characteristic value determination, training, education and the transfer of scientific results into Vietnamese construction and planning practices are being developed.
EDAPA - Development of a diffusion-absorption refrigerator with a plate heat exchanger as generator A diffusion-absorption refrigerator is operated exclusively by the addition of heat and does not need any mechanical energy. The refrigerating machine therefore operates free from wear and at a low noise level. In the EDAPA research project, the diffusion-absorption process shall be made applicable for the air conditioning of buildings by scaling the process towards higher cooling capacities.
HetKond – Energy-efficient aerosol separation via heterogeneous condensation In this project, the unexplored heterogeneous condensation on the particles from biomass combustion shall be investigated. This includes the activability of the particles and their growth. Non-contact optical measurement technology as well as specific sampling shall enable to gain deep insight into the complex processes. In order to achieve a high oversaturation, the use of spray towers shall be optimized to ensure a successful heterogeneous condensation so that the aerosols can be efficiently separated.
OptAwEW - Optimization of absorption heat pumps to be used in fourth generation district heating systems District heating systems are an important part of today’s heat supply and, even more, of the future heat supply. In order to be able to integrate more heat sources in a cost-effective way, the supply temperature shall be reduced to 95 °C or less. The integration of those heat sources is further supported by an additional reduction of the return temperature in the district heating system via an absorption heat pump. Such an absorption heat pump, to be used in fourth generation district heating systems, is investigated at IGTE.
