Simran Bajaj and Aishwarya Singh - Eco-friendly AC
Air conditioners not only consume a lot of power, escalating your electricity bills, it is also harmful for the environment due to emission of Chlorofluorocarbons, or CFCs, which cause depletion of the Ozone layer. They are a dent to the pocket and also to the environment.
To tackle these two major issues, two students, Simran Bajaj and Aishwarya Singh, along with their mentor Maham Malik from Galgotia's University have designed and engineered an environmental-friendly AC.
The AC is best suited for small rooms. It has been tested in a room and it dropped the temperature by seven degree Celsius.
Since it is a low budget AC, it is fit for use in hostel rooms. It gives a temperature drop of 7 degree Celsius on a hot day.
Cost wise and usage wise, it can give the industrial ACs a tough competition and can be used in areas which have a low voltage supply.
The AC works on brine and it isn't a coolant, which comes under the chemical category. It can be recycled, so no more CFCs. Besides, it does not lead to unwanted humidity in the air nor does it over dry the air on cooling.
It does not consume a lot of electricity. It is marketable and can be of great use to common people.
