Liquid Desiccant Dehumidification

Liquid Desiccant Dehumidification fir Building Systems

CHAOS Lab is currently exploring the design and application of liquid desiccant cooling systems. Leveraging new chemicals with optimal vapor-liquid equilibria for dehumidification and regeneration, researchers are currently designing and constructing a ventilation chamber optimized for the desiccant. Additionally, the ventilation chamber will allow for both passive and direct solar capture.
