MagnoTherm Solutions develops and builds magnetic cooling devices (MCD). Refrigeration takes up for almost 20% of all electrical energy around the globe. Moreover, it uses climate-unfriendly refrigerant gases up to 4,000 stronger than CO2. With global regulations, those refrigerants will be banned in near future. Alternatives are either explosive and toxic or limited in its efficiency. With the rise of warm countries like the BRICS states, demand for cooling will grow tremendously.

The technology of magnetic cooling is up to 40% more efficient than the best gas compression system today. And it uses a solid-state refrigerant material instead of gases. By water, the heat and cold is transported. This results in a low maintenance system free of any harmful gases and with low operating pressures. With the refrigerant material being tuneable to different temperatures, highly specialised cooling systems can be realised now. Potential applications range from F&B cooling, residential cooling, IT and server cooling, or heat pumps.

MagnoTherm Solutions combines world-leading know-how in magnetic materials with engineering. A first MCD prototype has been shown, a first magnetic cooling system will be shown soon. By utilizing this technology, refrigeration can be brought to the next level and made fit for the future. Refrigeration is not a luxury, but a necessity. Let’s make this necessity green.
