About

Pascal is developing a novel class of solid refrigerants poised to transform the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) industry.

Pascal’s solid refrigerants operate in the same pressure range as gaseous refrigerants but with zero global warming potential. This technology can unlock increased energy-efficiency at reduced system sizes, paving the way for next-generation heating and cooling solutions.

Team

Adam Slavney is the CEO and co-founder of Pascal. He earned a Ph.D. in chemistry from Stanford University and previously held a postdoctoral fellowship at the Harvard University Center for the Environment, working in Jarad Mason’s laboratory. During his tenure at Harvard, Slavney explored the technological and economic aspects of the clean energy transition, which ultimately led him to join Pascal. Slavney believes that Pascal’s technology is the key to making cooling and heating sustainable.
