Thermal Energy Conversion
Magnetic Refrigeration CALORIVAC®
CALORIVAC® is a magnetocaloric alloy enabling solid state energy conversion such as magnetic refrigeration. It enables engineers to build gas-free magnetic refrigeration using magnetocaloric alloys as active materials.
Thermoelectric - VACOTHERM®
A considerable part of the energy we use today is lost in the form of heat - whether in computers, cars or power plants. Thermoelectric materials convert waste heat directly into electricity, they are used for exhaust gas recirculation in automobiles or heavy-duty vehicles, waste heat recovery in industry or to increase efficiency in combined heat and power plants.
