Electrified Industrial Decarbonization
The industrial dependency on fossil-fuel in high-temperature heating industries can finally become history thanks to our innovation – Electric Arc Calciner (EAC).
The technology reinvents the industrial process called calcination – a heating process used to heat materials to a high temperatures. Our electric plasma technology replaces fossil-driven heating with renewable electricity and captures the CO2 emissions released during the heating process.
Electrification technology powering deep industrial decarbonization
Today the quick lime production emits more than 400 million ton of CO2 worldwide. The material is one of the most important material we have on earth makes it possible to drink clean water, produce steel, glass and paper etc. The majority of the industry use the quick lime as an essential component int their production.
Our solution is electrifying the heating of the material and takes care of the process emissions from the stone at the same time. You get both a production unit and a carbon capture unit at a glance.
Portland cement is a fantastic material which makes it possible to build long and strong bridges and buildings high as the sky. The material is so popular that it is the second most used produced material after water. However, it comes with a heavy CO2 footprint almost 900 kg emission per ton cement produced.

Other electric calcination areas
The most common calcination process is the one in the limestone industry. However, several other industries also use calcination in their production; some examples are alumina and magnesium oxide. As future development, these processes could also be electrified with our EAC (Electric Arc Calciner) technology.
