Self-Cooling Supercomputer

A Fahrenheit adsorption cooling system is supporting sustainable energy efficiency at the Leibniz Supercomputer Centre.

Data centers use a lot of electricity! On the one hand for data processing, on the other hand for cooling the processors. Energy efficiency is the top issue here. A supercomputer is in operation at the Leibniz Supercomputer Centre (LRZ) in Munich-Garching, which is cooled by a Fahrenheit adsorption chiller. That means: The heat produced by the processors is converted into cooling energy for the cooling system. This saves electricity and significantly reduces CO2 emissions.
