Siberian scientists have created an alternative source of heat for the Northerners

Scientists at the Boreskov Institute of Catalysis of the Siberian Branch (BIC SB) of Russian Academy of Sciences have created an apparatus that converts cold into heat. Technology named «Tephol» is based on the use of difference in temperatures between a non-freezing water reservoir and air, said Michael Tokarev, a member of the Group for Energy Accumulation Processes and Materials at the BIC SB RAS.

«There are three thermostats in the apparatus — they simulate the cold outside, the non-freezing water, and „a consumer“. Since we get -20 degrees Celsius and below outside naturally, i.e. for free, and over 20 degrees of difference between air temperature and an ice-free water, overall we get 40 degrees of heat for free — the lower is the temperature outside, the more heat we get,» Tokarev explained. He added that the technology is designed for users who live in regions with a cold climate and also have a water body nearby.

Scientists used methanol and an adsorbent (a material that absorbs vapours) for the apparatus. Methanol is cooled to a low temperature, — one that equals the temperature outside, — then it is condensed in a closed container, and then finally it is heated again with the heat from the reservoir, settles on the adsorbent and releases the heat.
