StoRIES Infrastructures: CNR COMPLab-STI

COMPLab-STI of Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) infrastructure platform combining laboratories of CNR ITAE (http://www.itae.cnr.it/en/2019/03/20/testing-rig-for-thermal-and-hybrid-chillersheat-pumps/).

State of the art: Network research facilities and equipment to develop chemical ES solutions from the material to the system level in the following research areas: Components for Adsorption Heat Transformation; thermal ES and hybrid chillers/heat pump; Chemical laboratory for the thermochemical and thermo-physic characterization of sorbent materials and PCMs.

Services currently offered by the infrastructure:  synthesis and characterization of adsorbent materials and phase change materials for thermal ES, thermal analysis platform for the measure of the adsorption capacity of the porous materials (isobars and isotherms) and to evaluate at the same time the adsorption enthalpy, Sorption kinetics testing bench, Reactor/adsorber testing bench, Test benches for thermal ES systems.
