Making the world a cooler place
The Big Problem
Cooling Efficiency: A Game-Changer in Energy Strategy
The overlooked global urgency for air conditioners is set to triple the energy demand by 2050, equaling 10 new AC sales every second for 30 years. This rising tide underscores the critical need for enhanced cooling efficiency standards. By elevating these standards, we can significantly diminish the demand for new power plants, cut back emissions, and reduce costs, marking a vital move for global governments and sectors.
Appollo’s unique, patented centrifugal compression process will disrupt incumbent technology, save users money and show the world how to meet and exceed future efficiency standards.
Leveraging years of rigorous research and development, Appollo Wind Technologies has worked to pioneer an HVAC system that harnesses the power of centrifugal force for the compression and decompression of refrigerants. This innovative approach results in a remarkable up to 30% or more efficiency boost compared to the prevalent standard split systems.

Reduced Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Traditional refrigerants like 410A can trap up to 1000 times more heat than CO2 when released into the atmosphere. By leveraging its isothermal turbo compression, Appollo makes the use of CO2 as a refrigerant not just feasible, but environmentally superior, paving the way for decreased greenhouse gas emissions.
Improved Energy Efficiency
Conventional CO2 systems tend to be energy-intensive due to the heavier nature of CO2 gas. However, Appollo’s unique isothermal turbo compression technology addresses this challenge, making the system both efficient and eco-friendly, further reducing energy consumption and associated environmental impacts.
Many modern air conditioners, particularly those powered by solar energy, face the challenge of a significant start-up surge, which presents both financial and environmental costs. Appollo’s rotating turbo compressor eliminates this problem by allowing a gradual ramp-up. This not only makes the technology more feasible for off-grid and military applications but also promotes the use of sustainable energy sources in HVAC solutions.
All HVAC systems require “phase change” to operate. Phase change happens at predetermined temperature and pressure for a giving working fluid illustrated by the graphic below.
Incumbent technology compresses refrigerant which heats the gas requiring even higher pressures in order to change phase from gas to liquid. This is a near runaway scenario exemplified by the red line.
SOLUTION: Appollo’s patented technology expels heat during the unique centrifugal compression process. The result is that the refrigerant condenses into a liquid lower on the phase change curve saving in excess of up to 30% or more of energy.
