Thermacool is a high performance, exterior surface coating with excellent infra-red heat reflection properties. The primary benefit is 15°C to 20°C reduction in roof top temperature, depending on the surface. Thermacool Coating is a patented solution, uniquely designed and developed by Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay.
21st centuries biggest problem is Global warming. The erratic climate changes being seen in this decade are mainly due to Global warming. Global warming results in enhancing the room temperature or even the temperature of sea surface. In the last decade, its rise by 1oC created a havoc. We have seen several Tsunamis, Forest fire, extreme rains and flooding, hurricanes and some other changes in climate.
One of the primary reasons for Global warming is the increase in temperature due to burning of C. The burning of C occurs by burning coal, especially the coal based power plants or burning of Oil and gas for many industrial and home needs.
Thus reduction of carbon burning in the form of coal and oil and gas can reduce the c-footprints and hence Global warming. So any effort which reduces the carbon burning is going to help in reduction in Global warming.
In 2015 during Paris Climate Conclave, India took a pledge to reduce C-foot prints by reducing coal based power plants. PM Modi gave a very optimistic target of reducing Coal based power by replacing it with Solar Power. The target set 18GW solar power was full filled before the target time and a new target of 83 GW was set which is also working efficiently.
Any other source which reduces C footprint is equally welcome. Thermacool SHRC helps in reducing C foot print. See the enclosed picture which shows by using Thermacool SHRC coating on a roof helps n reducing 7 units of electricity per day for one AC of 1.5 ton for a rooftop house of 1000 Sq ft. This one AC reduces 7 units of electricity which is equivalent to 4.2 Kg of Coal per day from one AC. Thus reduction in C foot prints for a single AC unit per year is 766 units per year and the corresponding carbon equivalent reduction are 0.46 t/year. Thus if there are millions of such AC’s working in a city and are protected by Solar SHRC, how much C-footprint reduction can happen a which can help reducing Global warming substantially.
