Abstract

In desiccant cooling systems, the desiccant material reduces the humidity in the process air by removing its moisture. The reduction of the temperature is achieved by heat exchangers, evaporative coolers or conventional cooling coils. These systems draw interest because they allow the use of low quality energy which can support sustainability through energy efficiency.
