“Triple-state absorption”

Ray Olsson’s original patent which ClimateWell® acquired when the company was founded in 2001, increased energy density and reduced energy losses, thereby improving overall efficiency.


Göran Bolin’s invention to embed the salt crystals in a three-dimensional structure and use capillary forces to transfer the chemically-bound energy of the salt crystals’ core. This means that moving parts (pumps which consume electricity) are avoided, thereby obtaining a less complex system that is robust, scalable and cost-effective.

“Nano Coated Salt (NCS)”

Göran Bolin’s invention increases the steam channels to and from the salt crystals’ core, thereby drastically increasing the energy density. In addition, NCS prevents or reduces corrosion in the component.
