Innovating to limit climate change is at the heart of Absolut System’s strategy.

The stakes are high, with global warming accelerating: +1.1°C since 1850 and a risk of exceeding +4°C by 2100. In a vicious circle, sea levels and ocean temperatures are rising, Arctic sea ice and snow cover are retreating, and disruption is increasing.

The cause? The increase in greenhouse gases (GHGs) induced by human activities, due in part to the use of fossil fuels (oil, gas, coal).

The Paris climate agreement commits industry to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030, compared with 1990 levels. To meet these commitments, we urgently need to rethink our energy supplies and decarbonize the production, distribution and use of energy.

Decarbonizing energy

The decarbonization of energy aims to reduce our consumption of primary energies by gradually and totally replacing them with renewable or carbon-free energies. The aim is to drastically reduce our carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions. Cryogenics enables us to develop our energy production and accelerate the energy transition through industrial innovations such as superconducting electric motors, liquid hydrogen aircraft and nuclear fusion.

Superconductivity and liquefaction

One of Absolut System’s key areas of expertise is superconductivity, using liquid cryogens such as nitrogen, hydrogen and helium. We specialise in the cooling of superconducting cables and in all aspects of cryogenic fluid and thermal management for various applications (superconducting motors, high-power wind turbine generators, etc.).

Absolut System is developing several types of liquefier using Turbo-Brayton technology to enable manufacturers to test and use superconduction and, in the long term, to have access to liquefied hydrogen. This technology provides cryogenic cooling based on mechanical stability (low vibrations) and high reliability.

Nuclear fusion

How does it work? Nuclear fusion combines hydrogen atoms without emitting radioactive waste. This fusion takes place in a tokamak, an enclosure that reaches temperatures of several million degrees.

In stars, as in fusion machines, plasmas form a medium in which hydrogen atoms can fuse and generate energy. The electrically charged particles that make up the plasma can be confined and controlled by powerful magnetic fields generated by superconducting magnets.

Absolut System cools superconducting coils for tokamaks.

To maintain the superconducting state of the magnets, Absolut System uses cryogenic technologies to cool them to temperatures of around -250°C (20K).

Thanks to this technique, the magnets are able to generate the very intense magnetic fields needed to confine and stabilize the plasma.

Superconducting mega-wind turbines

Cryogenics enables generators to be cooled, so they become more efficient by being smaller. This means more power can be generated for the same size. The new high-power wind turbines meet the demand to increase the share of renewable energies in the electricity grid.
