[November 2021] Energy & Emissions Reduction Success.
Our world’s existential necessities which include CO2 emissions and depletion of our carbon absorbing forests and jungles, is being highlighted at the G20 summit in Rome and followed by the COP26 Glasgow climate change conference.

We are very pleased to see our vision for Lakeside Cooling Towers [LCT] being finally acted upon by the world at large. Since 1992 LCT has stopped using timber for cooling tower building as part of its determination to reduce degradation of our environment.

It is also very pleasing to see many of our clients’ commitment to our environment by selecting LCT’s energy efficient Australian made cooling towers.

Santos one of our clients, has successfully tested last year 100 tons of CO2 “Moomba“ Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS). The Moomba CCS project is expected to create about 230 jobs during the construction phase and store about 1.7 million tones of carbon dioxide per year in depleted oil and gas reservoirs in South Australia’s far north.

[June 2021] Potential impact of evaporative cooling technologies on Australian office buildings

This paper presents the results of a preliminary simulation-based study of the potential energy-efficiency benefits of a range of evaporative cooling technologies for Australian office buildings across the full range of Australian climates.

It is found that dewpoint coolers offer the most promising savings potential (13–55 per cent) across climate zones 2–7 (i.e., all climate zones other than Darwin and Thredbo). In climate zone 8 (Thredbo) it is shown that a direct/indirect evaporative cooling arrangement can wholly supplant the need for a chiller. Desiccant wheel systems were found to generate electricity savings in climate zones 1–4 but these were counteracted by the significant amount of energy required for desiccant reactivation.
