The thermodynamic cycle developed for the applications of E-llum Filter in the field of cooling is highly innovative and makes use of specifically selected fluids.
These are used in similar ways to those of conventional heat-absorbing heat pumps, where the energy engine of the cycle is given by a heat source at a suitable temperature (instead of a compressor).
Typically these temperatures are rather high and therefore associated with those that can be defined as valuable heat sources.
The advantage of the E-llum Filter solution consists in offering the possibility of enhancing heat sources at temperatures significantly lower than the usual ones, ie in conditions that are typically classified as non-recoverable waste heat.
Through the alternation of ad-hoc designed adsorption and desorption phases and thanks to the selective temporal action of the E-llum filter exerted on the heat transfer fluid it is possible to change the conditions of regeneration of the fluid up to allow this phenomenon to occur even at temperatures absolutely modest when compared with those of classic heat-absorbing cycles.
ILENIA PROF.SSA ROSSETTI, I believe in research.
Born in 1974, in 1998 she graduated summa cum laude in Industrial Chemistry at Università degli Studi di Milano and in 2001 she got a PhD in Industrial Chemistry, awarded by the same University.
She then graduated in 2016 in the Master of Science course in Chemical Engineering at Politecnico di Milano as second graduation with 110/110 mark. She got a post-doc position (2002) at Dipartimento di Chimica Fisica ed Elettrochimica of Università degli Studi di Milano; in 2002, she became Junior Researcher at the Faculty of Sciences of the same University (scientific sector: Physical Chemistry), then Senior Researcher since 2005.
Since February 1st 2015 she is Associate Professor of Chemical Industrial Plants at the Dept. of Chemistry of the University of Milano.
She has been responsible of research contracts on behalf of important industries, such as ENI, Itelcond, Garo, ACS Dobfar, Larioreti, BASF, Petrochem, Italcom, SAES Getters, Sotacarbo and Clariant. She was also national coordinator of different research projects granted by Regione Lombardia and Fondazione Cariplo.
She was also member of national PRIN research projects since 2002. See the On-going projects page for details. She is afferent to the National Consortium for Materials Science and Technology (INSTM) and to the Centre for Nanostructured Materials and Interfaces (CIMAINA).
She is associated to CNR-ISTM since 2009.
