Abstract: The prominent issues of energy crisis and environment toxicity are disused in these days globally. The CO2 concentration in atmosphere and depletion of conventional fuels can be control by the implementation of eco-friendly and energy efficient material-based cooling systems for heat recovery. The uncovered heat in terms of waste heat from different industrial process of power generation plant, iron industry, refineries, etc., is capable of producing combine generation of power-heating and cooling. This paper conducts the theoretical analysis of solar thermal energy operated vapour adsorption and steam jet cooling system for heat recovery of different capacity of power generation system. The result of present work summarise the efficient cooling effect with minimum high grade energy consumption. The integration of solar parabolic trough collector-based water heating unit helps to increase the desorber temperature and further improvement in refrigerator performance with the utilisation of alternative refrigerant material and achieve the de-carbonise infrastructure for massive industry.

Keywords: global warming potential; ozone depletion; eco-friendly refrigerants; solar thermal renewable energy system.
