The article discusses the process of removing heat from an enclosed space called refrigeration. It provides knowledge on the basic mechanism of refrigerator and determines the technology of electric refrigeration, magnetic refrigeration, thermoelectric refrigeration, and thermo acoustic refrigeration. It is stated that environment friendly solid state refrigeration technologies that offer cold temperatures can then be tapped for chilling refrigerators, bedrooms and cars.
