Vapour absorption cooling system for cars

  1. Oct 4, 2016 #1
    Is to possible to provide cooling for automobiles using vapor absorption compression system utilizing the exhaust gases? If possible how efficient can this method work?

    India, and Indian equivalent of EPA is not familiar to me; in the
    USA you'll lose more than the "waste heat" is worth in heat exchangers that "isolate" it from the passenger compartment.

    Since the normal AC primarily uses shaft power and an absorption system would use the waste exhaust heat, I would think there would be a savings. It's worth looking into in some more detail...
