'Cool' idea for efficient climate control wins recognition
Date:11/25/2008

t in large projects," Muller said. "The economics of making a smaller scale R-718 compressor have, in the past, proven to be prohibitive."

Mϋller invented a way to make an economical compressor that is small and lightweight by designing a novel turbo compressor woven out of high-strength fibers with an integrated motor.

"It gives wonderful control. It's efficient and compact," said Mϋller, who points out that up to 30 percent of U.S. electricity is used for cooling and air conditioning. "Another plus for the new R-718 technology is that by experience it is surprisingly quiet."

Barrie is an architect and industrial designer. He and Mϋller have teamed up for other grant proposals.

"I work to develop and promote innovative sustainable technologies," said Barrie. "My contribution to this project is as a consultant on how air conditioning functions in the real world."

Mϋller and Barrie want to develop prototypes of the air conditioner as additional funding for development becomes available.
