Thermohaline system

These University fellows from National University of Science and Technology decided to create a vapour absorption chiller system inspired by the thermohaline process. Realising that current cooling systems are financially and environmentally costly, the pair are working on a simple pump modification that hopes to deliver a more affordable, eco-friendly and efficient air conditioning system.
