Researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) have developed a new water-based air-conditioning system which can cool air up to 18º Celsius without the use of energy-intensive compressors and environment harming chemical refrigerants.

The new air conditioner has the capability to replace the age-old power consuming technology which is still used in the modern-day air-conditioners. This AC technology could be used for both indoors and outdoors and are portable devices which can be customised to adapt to various weather conditions.

The eco-friendly cost-effective air conditioner consumes 40 percent lesser electricity than the currently used compressor- based variants used in homes and commercial buildings. It also accounts for 40 percent lesser carbon emissions. The water-based cooling system can be a safer alternative to chemical refrigerants such as chlorofluorocarbons and hydrochlorofluorocarbons.
