Final Report - B-COOL (Low Cost and High Efficiency CO2 Mobile Air Conditioning system for lower segment cars)

Project ID: 12394
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


This final report for the B-COOL project which received funding by the European Commission under the Sixth Framework Programme. B-COOL was fully devoted to the development of a low cost and high efficiency air-conditioning system for automobiles, based on a vapour compression cycle using carbon dioxide (CO2) - identified with the acronym R-744 when used as refrigerant fluid.

The report covers testing procedures looking at the fuel consumption of the vehicle under various conditions while using the system. It provides an overview of the technical performance of each four vehicles tested, providing a clear understanding of the systems architecture, its performance, life cycle, onboard safety issues and a comprehensive look into the technical challenges for further investigation.
