Environmentally Low Impact Cooling Technology

Why the ELICiT Project?

The domestic fridge consumes 5% of all generated electricity. As a result, current regulatory regimes are structured to drive domestic fridge manufacturers to produce the most energy efficient appliances possible. Magnetic cooling, a cost effective solution Magnetic cooling is intended […]

About Magnetic Cooling

Magnetic cooling, or refrigeration, is a cooling technology based on the magnetocaloric effect, a technique which can be used to attain extremely low temperatures including the ranges used in domestic refrigerators. The principle advantages of magnetic cooling are: improved device […]

What is the ELICiT Project?

ELICiT “Environmentally Low Impact Cooling Technology” is a  European Union Seventh Framework Programme for Research (FP7). The 3 year research project, begun in January 2014, will help efficient gas‐free magnetic cooling move from a laboratory scale technology to a high‐volume […]
