Grand Opening – ECRC (Electric Calcination Research Center)

On the 16th of November, we had our Grand Opening event for our magnificent test and research center in Hofors, Sweden. Over 100 invited guests celebrated this very special moment together with us.

In less than ten months, we have constructed and built a world-unique facility, paving the way forward to industrialize our electrification and carbon dioxide separation technology. The event marks the beginning of a new era for us as a company, as we now accelerate our efforts to set our technology to work – eliminating millions of tons of CO2 from heavy-emission industries globally.

For all of you who participated, thanks for spending the day with us! It means more than a lot to have your support and trust. For all of you who believe in us and couldn’t join in – this is for you! Enjoy.

Cutting the Ribbon ✂️

The moment we all have been waiting for – cutting the ribbon and officially declaring our test- and research center inaugurated. It is a truly special moment for us as we can now proceed into the very important testing phase.

The honor of cutting the ribbon with our CEO, Carl-Johan Linér went to the municipal board chairman in Hofors, Tomas Isaksson (left), and Scarnarc’s CEO, Håkan Gustafsson (right).
