Cooling using waste or renewable heat
Our patented technology turns waste heat into cold using a thermochemical solid-gas reaction and saves 80% electricity.
COLDINNOV is developing a patented breakthrough innovation in sustainable cold production. Our thermochemical solid / gas process uses waste heat as a primary source of energy to produce cooling. This technology is based on the adsorption of ammonia by a solid reagent developed by COLDINNOV, in a reactor Our technology's main asset is that instead of a noisy compressor running on electricity, we use a silent reactor running on free waste or renewable heat! This is why we save more than 80% of energy compared to a compression system. We also use a natural refrigerant with no impact on climate change or the ozone layer: ammonia. As there are no moving parts in the reactor, we reduce the maintenance costs of the refrigeration system. Since we developped two different types of reactors, we can either directly convert heat into cold or store it in a chemical way. The COLDINNOV system can be integrated wherever there is a source of heat to be exploited, both in static cooling and mobile refrigeration applications. In particular, we aim at developping our process for industrial process cooling, air conditioning, valorization of the heat resulting from biogas combustion, refrigerated transport by road, rail or sea…
