Traditional Vapor Compressor Refrigerants have 10 times more global warming potential than carbon dioxide. Sheetak, with the help of ARPA-E funding, is manufacturing a low cost solid state compressor technology that could disrupt the global refrigeration and cooling market while creating high tech jobs in Austin, Texas. The same nano structured materials that will be used to replace traditional vapor compressors, can also be used to convert waste heat to electricity in systems like hybrid and electric vehicles and HVAC.
