Abstract
This paper describes the design and construction of a solar thermal adsorption refrigerator in Patna, Bihar, India. After a brief description of the local situation and planning prerequisites the reasons for choosing an ethanol based adsorption system are explained. The following sections are focused on the description of the design and the theory behind the system. Lastly, practical aspects that arose during the construction of the first prototype are mentioned.
