COLDINNOV, Expert in thermochemical cooling
An innovative green-tech company, COLDINNOV focuses on sustainable cold production:
- We develop a breakthrough innovation in thermochemical cooling. This patented technology allows us to turn waste heat into sustainable cooling by using a thermochemical solid / gas reaction and ammonia. Heat can come from various sources, including industry, agriculture or tertiary; transportation (by sea, trucks or rail); or even renewable sources (solar thermal …).

Our solution: drawing cold from waste heat
The technology developed and patented by COLDINNOV is based on a thermochemical solid / gas adsorption reaction using ammonia (NH3). Unlike the HFC and HCFC gases used today, ammonia is a natural refrigerant that has no effect on global warming or the ozone layer.
Therefore, this solution is an alternative to conventional refrigeration, provided mainly by compression systems and characterized by:
- Their energy consumption: they represent 15% of global electricity consumption
- Their refrigerant fluids: Fluoride-based, most are harmful to the ozone layer and amplify climate change
COLDINNOV solutions mitigate the impact of refrigeration on the environment by improving energy efficiency and recovering waste or renewable heat.
Without a compressor or moving parts and silent, the COLDINNOV system drastically reduces the consumption of cooling systems in electricity or fuel.
COLDINNOV’s innovation also lies in the adaptability of the technology to several power scales as well as to different energy vectors as the main source of heat. This allows us to develop a wide range of applications in static cooling as well as in mobile refrigeration.
The Solar Impulse Foundation just awarded its label to COLDINNOV’s solution of HECO/C thermochemical cooling and waste heat recovery! This is a great recognition for COLDINNOV and for its Cold-ID subsidiary, in charge of the technical and commercial development of our solution, after more than 6 years of R&D and very significant investments. As part […]
COLDINNOV at the HyDeO seminar on hydrogen COLDINNOV participates in the hydrogen seminar organized by HyDeO and hosted by the Narbonne Chamber of Commerce and Industry, on June 20th. Many stakeholders of the hydrogen sector in the Occitanie region will also be represented. The purpose of this meeting is to create synergies between the different […]
Most processes, industrial or otherwise, produce heat. What’s more, more than 90% of this thermal energy is not recovered, resulting in significant environmental and financial losses. At the same time, there is an ever increasing demand for cooling and refrigeration in all sectors of society. Based on these facts, the idea of COLDINNOV is to […]
It’s official, COLDINNOV will participate in the 2019 Forum des Éco-Entreprises, that will be held in Paris on April 4th! Organised by the French Ministry of the Economy, this forum is the annual meeting of the business and innovation community of the clean-tech sector. Come and see us at the « energy efficiency » window, where COLDINNOV […]
COLDINNOV has just joined the “pôle de compétitivité DERBI”! Its role is to unite private and public actors involved in the development of renewable energy sectors in the Occitanie region in France. This network is particularly active in the fields of solar, hydrogen, biogas, and energy efficiency that are the strong interests of COLDINNOV. As well […]
