Our contribution to a decarbonized & sustainable future

Electrifying heavy-emission industries is a must to reach global climate goals. This is the plants we have built – so far.

ECRC – Electric Calciner Research Center

A industrial test and research plant for electric calcination located in Hofors, Sweden. The facility serves as the bridge between the previous smaller pilot and the full-scale industrial facilities that will be established together with our partners. Project status: Opening in the autumn of 2023. Project partners: ScanArc & ABB Application: Electric calcination for several industries, such as Quicklime & cement. Read more about our ECRC-plant here.

Calcination Pilot

When optimizing the charging unit of SaltX energy storage technology – a new innovation was born. An electric arc calciner which both can be used for charging in the energy storage application but also for electrifying and decarbonization of high temperature industries such a quick lime and cement. Project status: Completed Project partners: ABB Application: Electrification of high temperature industries.

Stockholm Pilot

Following the construction and test runs in Berlin, SaltX has focused on improving and optimizing the technologies for charging and discharging in an pilot just outside Stockholm at Vattenfall’s facilities. Project status: Ongoing Project partners: Sumitomo SHI FW & Calix Limited, 
ABB & Alfa Laval Application: Energy storage for Cities & Industries

Berlin Pilot

In 2019 SaltX developed a large-scale pilot plant at Vattenfall’s combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Berlin. The energy storage unit stored excess (renewable) electricity and discharged it as heat directly into Berlin’s district heating network. Project status: Deployed Project partners: Vattenfall Application: Energy storage for Cities
