Industrial decarbonisation

The decarbonisation of industry in the pursuit of a net zero economy is one of the greatest global challenges. Industries such as cement, lime, iron and steel provide the foundations of our societies and economies. They also represent approximately 15% of global CO2 emissions and require urgent, affordable and scalable decarbonisation solutions.

The transition to net zero will also require vastly increased use of minerals essential to the decarbonisation of economies. From lithium for batteries to metals used in advanced manufacturing, the materials of the future also require sustainable processing solutions.

Calix is applying its unique calcination technology to enable the urgent and economical decarbonisation of essential industries. By separating the heat source from the chemical reaction, Calix’s technology is enabling the electrification of industry, the efficient capture of unavoidable CO2 emissions, and green industrial processing solutions.

 

“I am very pleased to be joining Calix and its purpose-driven team to help the company achieve its potential as a leading global innovator of industrial solutions for the environment, addressing some of our most pressing global challenges. I strongly believe that Calix’s technology platform offers unique capabilities to decarbonise our essential industries and help to create the sustainable materials of the future.” – Dr Louise Keyte
