Decarbonizing heavy-emission Industries
We are at the forefront of driving innovation and scaling up electrification and carbon separation technologies to catalyze a massive shift towards zero industrial emissions at scale. Our groundbreaking electric calcination technology, EAC (Electric Arc Calciner), is adaptable for several industries and eliminates the need for external CO2-capturing. With our game-changing technology, we are confident in our ability to lead the way towards a more sustainable future.
One innovation – unmatched opportunities
We are on a mission to set industries free from their dependency on fossil fuels,
eliminating millions of tons of CO2 from emission-intensive industries.
It is the world’s most used building material, so popular that it is the second most produced material after water. However, it comes with a heavy CO2 footprint, with almost 900 kg of emission per ton of cement produced. Our electric kiln, with built-in CO2 separation, has the potential to reshape and set a new zero-emission standard for cement manufacturing globally.
Today, quicklime production emits more than 400 million tons of CO2 worldwide. This material is one of the most important materials we have on earth. It makes it possible to drink clean water and produce steel, glass, paper, etc. Our solution is electrifying the heating of the material and separating and isolating the process emissions at the same time.
The Electric Arc Calciner (EAC) has its origin as a charging reactor technology for SaltX’s thermal energy storage solution. As we have shifted focus towards calcination, mostly for the lime and cement sector, we will offer other companies within the energy storage sector the opportunity to utilize our charging technology in their applications.
Direct Air Capture (DAC)
Our EAC technology is perfectly suited for Direct Air Capture (DAC) application. The mineral solution used in DAC technology undergoes carbonation after binding with the CO2 from air. This carbonate solution can be regenerated in our electric calcination process, separating and isolating the CO2 for further use or geological storage.
Calcination is widely spread in several sectors beyond the lime and cement industry. Our technology has great potential to do its work, decarbonizing other high-temperature dependent industries such as aluminum and magnesium oxide. Our test and research center for electric calcination in Hofors, Sweden, will be our hub for testing new materials.
