Biography: 

JFE Engineering is the comprehensive engineering arm of the JFE Group, designing and building energy and environmental systems, steel structures and industrial machinery and systems. The company recently developed a revolutionary energy-efficiency air-conditioning technology in collaboration with the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO). The cooling medium at the heart of the new system, clathrate hydrate slurry (CHS), has a thermal density in the temperature range of 7-8 degrees Celsius two to three times greater than the chilled water used in air-conditioning, can store latent heat, and also boasts superior fluidity. CHS Thermal Energy Storage air-conditioning systems are contributing to the advance of the energy-efficiency business by cutting costs in industries with major cooling energy consumption and load-leveling at power companies.
