Reducing food industry carbon emissions with advanced hybrid desiccant-wheel heat pump system

Aiming to reduce industrial carbon pollution and moving the country toward a net-zero emissions economy by 2050, a team of researchers from Texas A&M, University of Pennsylvania, University of Virginia, and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory received Department of Energy (DOE) support to pursue the development and implementation of a high-performance hybrid desiccant-wheel heat pump system. Their work could pave a path for the food and agriculture industry to operate on carbon-pollution-free electricity by 2035 and significantly lower energy consumption, carbon intensity and operation costs.
