The aim of this project is to contribute to the growing need for cooling strategies in developing countries, such as India, where current solutions tend to be too expensive to implement, inefficient and further worsen the issue of overheating.
While research is being done into the use of cleaner cooling solutions such as more efficient ACs, advanced cold chains, and sustainable building materials, it is also important to factor in cost and accessibility of materials.This project aims to explore the potential of using commonly used and recycled materials to absorb heat or moisture from the air - these results could help develop more building materials or insulating layers that can be easily implemented into current households, or even help increase the efficiency of other cooling systems while keeping costs low.
