The use of absorption refrigerators to produce cold can definitely reduce energy usage through the use of a heat from the geothermal resources. Absorption refrigerators do not have a negative impact on the natural environment. They are particularly economically attractive when there is a free energy source with a temperature of between 50 and 200°C. This article presents a hybrid absorption-compression refrigerator powered by geothermal energy used for the production of ice slurry for air-conditioning refrigeration.
