Hotblock on board

Published on 27 August 2015

​Hotblock expoits its state-of-the-art thermoelectrical material to transform heat into electricity as well as detect heat loss in buildings and industrial environments.

Hotblock on board was created in 2012 in Grenoble and develops advanced silicium-based alloys developed by CEA-Liten and protected by 30 patents. Two to three times less expensive than traditional alloys, Hotblock on board’s materials function at higher temperatures than rival products (up to 500°C as opposed to 300°C) and contain neither contaminants nor rare elements in their manufacture.

The start-up combines its integration and in signal processing in order to develop two product lines. Firstly, thermoelectric generators are linked to exhaust systems (transport, industry) in order to recycle/exploit thermal energy. Secondly, minaturised thermal flow sensors, destined for construction and industrial applications, play an important role in helping to manage intelligent thermal sensors and ultimately reduce wasted heat loss.

The spin-off has signed a collaboration agreement with CEA-Liten which will help fund further development of its technologies as well as pursue its technology transfer interests. Prototypes are already being evaluated in a number of major accounts.
