GE Appliances is developing magnetic refrigeration for residential use, a technology that needs no refrigerants or compressors and promises to increase the energy efficiency of refrigerators by 20 percent.
Late on Friday, the Department of Energy (DOE) proposed new efficiency standards for commercial icemakers, which make the ice provided by drink dispensers in fast food restaurants among many other uses.
Scientists have found that quantum engineering techniques can push quantum absorption refrigerators beyond the classical efficiency limits.
Alaska Marine Lines, a Lynden company providing marine transportation to and fromAlaska, is continuing its efforts to work lean and green.
Scientists at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and Imperial College are working to make the inefficient method of refrigeration and air conditioning – which has been relied on for over a hundred years – a thing of the past.
