Conventional heat pumps do not reach high temperatures permanently, cannot deal with fluctuating sources and sinks, and achieve a low heat rise. The ROTATION HEAT PUMP can do all of this – and much more.
The ROTATION HEAT PUMP implements a thermodynamic cycle that is based on a Joule process. With technology that is backed by several patents, the centrifugal force is used to achieve the highest efficiency and maximum flexibility.

Sebastian Riepl has been active right from the start as a founder and CEO. During this time, the company was built up over several rounds of financing, and the innovative heat pump technology was managed from the idea up to the early stage phase with global patents. There were also many publications, patents and presentations, above all on the topic of rotation heat pumps. During the course of the round of financing in 2015, he withdrew from the operating area and since then has dedicated himself to completing his academic education. However, he still continues to support ECOP as a member of the advisory board and as a shareholder.
