ChillTechnologies Granted Patents in Waste Heat-driven Absorption Chilling

“We are delighted to announce that the UK Intellectual Property Office has confirmed the grant of two patents relating to our unique designs for delivering free chilling and heating using waste heat,” said Michael Keane, Executive Chairman of ChillTechnologies Limited, a UK-based engineering and development company, specialising in ultra-low cost green cooling and heating products. “We are now proceeding to extend these patents worldwide and, at the same time, looking for partners and investors to work with us, as we further develop these and our other designs.

In a world beset by both the consequences of climate degradation and the mass movement of refugees and migrants, due to political and environmental instability, not to mention the disparity in income and basic services between the rich world and the rest, our ability to deliver free cooling and heating, by the simple expedient of plugging the exhaust of a diesel generator or gas turbine into our chillers, offers the chance both to lower costs and carbon generation (operation of one of our chillers can save tonnes of CO2 from being generated each year), and to offer cost effective and essential cooling and heating services to those in dire need, who would otherwise have no access to such services.

When upwards of 40% of all fresh produce is spoilt in many parts of the world, because it cannot be kept cold, and for those same parts the diesel generator is the standard means of energy production, the ChillTechnologies solutions can be plugged into that generator with ease and make a meaningful difference to economic and social conditions. The same applies to schools, hospitals, offices and homes in those regions.

But it applies equally to the world of Combined Cooling Heating and Power (“CCHP”) in the rich world, as many seek the benefits of cleaner energy production from smaller scale gas turbines, with which our products work equally well.”


Refrigeration (storage)

With capacities of between 18 kW and 300 kW, and temperature ranges of 3C to 18C, we deliver cold storage solutions with zero fuel cost and zero CO2. Our chillers can be run off waste heat from any generator, including hydrogen, and also off direct fired heat, or biomass. We are actively working on solar solutions as well, such that our technology can be deployed in almost any situation.

Refrigeration (transport)

With cooling capacities from 4 kW to 7 kW, designed for refrigeration of trailers up to 40/50’, and temperature ranges from 3-18C, our thermal compressor TRUs run off the engine exhaust gases, providing 100% cost- and CO2-free refrigeration. Back-up power from gas and solar is also provided, making the unit entirely self-contained.

Air Conditioning

ChillTech offers highly efficient, reliable cooling and heating units designed to fit easily into any existing air conditioning system. Both our stand-alone and externally powered models deliver a significant reduction in cooling emissions and energy costs at far higher ambient temperatures than other solutions.
