We are an international team passionate about technology, sustainability, and cold beer.

The more we cool, the warmer it gets. Current gas-compression cooling accounts for 20% of global electricity consumption, and 10% of global greenhouse gas emissions. 9 Gt of CO2 will be emitted by 2050 if we continue refrigerating without any changes.

Enter MAGNOTHERM. We are an emerging TU Darmstadt spin-off with world-leading expertise in permanent magnets and magnetic cooling. Our international team of over 40 staff is headquarted in Darmstadt, Germany, and our prototype product can be found on nearly every continent. As a deep tech start-up, we stand on the shoulders of decades of pioneering magnetocalorics research and harness it into building the cooling solution of the future.

By developing and supplying a new magnetic cooling technology, we reduce direct greenhouse gas emissions by 100% and increase energy efficiency by up to 40%.

what makes us different

the codes we live by

We believe in science, we believe in facts.

We believe in taking action to address the climate crisis. Data, truth, and the scientific method guides us in all we do.

We solve the unsolvable.

We question the status quo and aim to disrupt a nearly 200-year-old industry. We take nothing for granted and find our own way forward.

We fail fast to learn faster.

We celebrate mistakes as opportunities for growth. We prefer action over endless discussion and failing over perfectionism.

The best idea wins.

From intern to executive, every idea is heard. When sh*t hits the fan, we huddle to solve problems together.

Everyone has a superpower.

Each team member brings a valuable perspective and strength to them team. We challenge and inspire each other.

Our freedom comes with responsibility.

We own our personal success and value going outside of our job description to help a colleague.
