Thermoelectric materials enable energy generation from waste heat
Thermoelectric generators based on the Seebeck effect generate economically usable electrical voltages simply by a temperature gradient. Vacuumschmelze GmbH, an expert in magnetic materials, can now produce the required materials on a large scale.

"With our newly developed hafnium-free Vacotherm thermoelectric materials, we are now in a position to produce these materials on a large scale and thus make them economical to use in applications with fluctuating waste heat volumes and high annual utilization rates," says Ute Fecher-Petzold, Product Manager at VAC. "We have already carried out several pilot projects and are confident that we can start series production in the short to medium term".
