Turboalgor wins the European LIFE tender for the development and commercialisation of the Free Piston Expander-compressor range.
Important international OEMs of transcritical CO₂ systems start testing prototypes of the Free Piston Expander on their systems.
Turboalgor begins optimisation and development of the turbocharger also for HFO and Propane systems for the Refrigeration and Heat Pump, Air Conditioning and Chiller sectors.


After the Covid emergency, marketing of Turboalgor kits for HFC systems resumed, with over 30 units successfully installed.


The first prototype of the free piston expander-compressor is realised.


Turboalgor files the first of two patents (the second in 2022) for energy-efficient devices for transcritical CO₂ refrigeration plants. In the same year, Turboalgor is awarded a regional grant for the development of the free piston expander-compressor for the energy efficiency of transcritical CO₂ refrigeration plants.


Installation of the first 'demonstration' Turboalgor kits on production plants (Grupo Tres Mares, Di Battista Food and Cesare Fiorucci). At the end of 2019, the commercialisation on the Italian market of the retrofitting version for existing plants begins.


Turboalgor was awarded a European Community H2020 tender for the development and industrialisation of a range of turbines for industrial refrigeration plants operating with HFCs to increase their energy efficiency.


LeMar Srl, real estate and financial company, interested in innovation, enters the capital of Turboalgor Srl to support the technology development.


Turboalgor Srl was established as a spin-off of Angelantoni Industrie.

2012 - 2014

Angelantoni Industrie wins a research tender from the Ministry of the Environment for the development of a turbocharger aimed at the energy efficiency of HFC refrigeration systems. Successful test of the first turbocharger prototype developed in collaboration with the University of Rome 3.


Angelantoni Industrie files a patent in Italy for a turbo-compressor for the efficiency of industrial refrigeration plants operating with HFCs and potentially HFOs and propane.

The EU’s challenge is also our challenge.
