SaltX begins material testing at its newly opened test and research center

Following last week's grand opening of SaltX Technology's world-unique Electric Calcination Research Center (ECRC), the first industrial-scale material tests are underway. These tests aim to ensure the final product's quality, optimize processes, and validate the technology's scalability.

In less than two years, SaltX has progressed from laboratory testing to a pilot facility to large-scale testing of its electrification and carbon dioxide separation technology. The technology enables the production of materials such as lime and cement entirely free from CO2 emissions. The facility was officially handed over from the project team to the operational team during the grand opening. Lars Croon, CTO at SaltX, commented:

"At the inauguration, we received a positive reception from industry guests. Being able to announce the commencement of large-scale material tests just one week later makes me both proud and optimistic."

As material tests are being conducted, important efforts are also underway to scale up the technology for the first-ever electrified quicklime plant. The plant is being built in collaboration with SMA Mineral and is expected to start operations by 2025. Lina Jorheden, COO at SaltX:

"Our primary focus now is to carry out the planned tests for SMA Mineral. After that, we will proceed with testing other types of material and open up more potential customers to use the test facility."

SaltX plans to publicly disclose the results of the initial tests by the first quarter of 2024.
