Hybrid adsorption compression heat pump cycles can be applied to upgrade waste heat to process heat temperatures. Model calculations show a power density of 25 kW m-3 can be achieved with a COP on heat of 0.3. By optimizing reactor dimensions, cycle times and by introducing heat and mass recovery options, it is expected this performance can be further improved. The model calculations show good correlation with measured performance at component level but further research is required to improve the model description.
