Researchers have now come up with a good way to cool down supercomputers, as well as save millions of gallons of water at the same time.
Without the need for a compressor, the new system is much like a refrigerator. The novel prototype uses liquid refrigerant instead of water and does not require the large, cumbersome cooling towers in use today.
It is estimated that the new method can save about 4 to 5 million gallons of water a year, and this can be increased further.
Questions to consider:
- Where else can we apply this method?
- Is it viable in the long run?
- What is the cost associated with changing our systems to this method?
