Final Report - TOPMACS (Thermally OPerated Mobile Air Conditioning Systems)

Project ID: 12471
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


The 'Thermally operated mobile air conditioning systems' (TOPMACS) project, funded under the European Commission's Sixth Framework Programme, undertook the study of reducing the impact of mobile air-conditioners on the environment. This final report lists the TOPMACS accomplishments, detailing the testing and development of prototypes in thermally operated air-conditioner systems for both large and medium transport types.

Working on engine heat-waste, the air-conditioner unit provides a unique adsorption cooling system. The final report provides an overview of the development of prototypes aiming at more industrialised components. It also illustrates various designs such as reactor design and, liquid and vapour distribution system design.
