Welcome to “DRREAM”, a collaborative research project funded by the EC under the Seventh Framework Programme.  The project started on 1st January, 2013 and will last for 3 years.


The goal of our consortium is to reduce the use of rare earth elements in the life cycle of technologies that use magnetic phase change materials.  Such compounds can be used in magnetic cooling, a high efficiency, solid state alternative to gas compression-based cooling as well as power generation from waste heat.  With emphasis on magnetic cooling, the effort to reduce rare earth usage in the future requires


  1.   optimised, high performance magnetic refrigerant materials

  2. low-wastage technologies for the production of magnetocaloric parts (e.g. for regenerators)

  3.   a life cycle analysis of magnetic cooling in application.
