Germany: How refrigerators should manage without climate-damaging chemicals

Many refrigerators still work with so-called F-gases. The start-up Magnotherm not only wants to make the devices more environmentally friendly, but also more economical. When it gets hot outside, the demand for air conditioning and refrigerators increases. But the refrigerators themselves are accelerating climate change, warns the German Environmental Aid. Although the EU has recently issued stricter rules, 80 percent of all cooling systems still work with so-called fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-gases). If they are released, they are around 100 to 24,000 times more harmful to the climate than CO2, warns the Federal Ministry for the Environment. Magnotherm wants to change that. To do this, the start-up uses a magnetic effect that aims to make cooling systems more sustainable. The company from Darmstadt currently works primarily with supermarkets, but it has also developed its own refrigerator. Magnotherm was founded in July 2019. The start-up emerged from a research group at the Technical University of Darmstadt. Max Fries and Timur Sirman have been running the company since it was founded.
