In this chapter, we have reviewed the advanced ceramics which are used for the refrigeration or cooling process. The refrigeration process is carried out using the magnetocaloric effect, i.e., the variation of specific heat and thermal energy as a function of temperature and magnetic field. The ceramics of magnetite and rare earth alloys of magnetic composites are briefly discussed.
