CO2 Heat Pump and Refrigeration Technology

Our research on sustainable heating and cooling technologies focuses on the transition to natural working fluids with low environmental impacts, such as carbon dioxide (CO2). We are interested in understanding the fundamental heat transfer and thermodynamic characteristics of supercritical CO2 flows, aiming to make CO2 heat pumps and refrigerators more efficient.
