Humidity related problems have long been recognized as risks to occupants and building structures. Standard Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems are challenged to deal effectively with elevated indoor humidity levels because sensible and latent cooling are not effectively decoupled.

In this report, “Phase I: Design Study and Project Site Selection” investigates non-conventional liquid desiccant dehumidification systems, identifies applications in Hawaii, proposes a pilot design and identifies a potential site for the implementation of a pilot.
