KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.
Third-cycle subject: Energy Technology
The project will be carried out at the division of applied thermodynamics and refrigeration. In order to meet the global environmental goals, the HFC refrigerants should to be replaced by more environmentally friendly while improving energy efficiency. The focus will be on identifying new refrigerants with good Coefficient of Performance (COP), low flammability and low toxicity. Refrigerant mixtures can be used to increase flexibility in choosing between COP, volumetric refrigerating capacity, flammability and Global Warming Potential (GWP).In addition to their performance, toxicity and GWP values, the project will investigate other potential environmental effects on the short and long term as well as the energy efficiency aspects of these alternative refrigerants. The focus will be on new environmental friendly refrigerants for cooling/ heat pump systems when phasing out HFC refrigerants.
The doctoral studentship primarily refers to four years of employment for a maximum of five years with 20% department duties.
