Sustainable processing

The Calix Technology can help improve the sustainability of existing industrial processes through a more optimised use of mineral and chemical resources, and the use of renewable sources of energy.

The Calix Technology opens the door to improving cost, energy efficiency and flexibility of process unit operations. Calix Technology enables calcination, phase conversion, dehydration and reaction using any available fuel source, including behind the meter renewables, or making use of excess base load power during off peak periods.

As the world shifts to more renewable energy sources for transport fuels, heating, and utilities many industries are facing much higher energy costs as well as carbon trade barriers around the world. This has happened before with the shift away from coal, then the shift away from heavy fuel oil, and again with natural gas.

Governments are spending big on electrical infrastructure upgrades and flagging that the future of industry is going to be powered exclusively with electricity with grid scale storage and export with batteries and hydrogen.

Many mineral or chemical processes haven’t had the opportunity to make use of low cost, renewable electricity because availability of proven, large scale, electric fired thermal processing hasn’t been available until now.

The next 10 years is going to see significant shifts in costs and processing methods to more sustainable energy sources. A shift to processes which are more flexible in energy source and feedstock. A seismic shift in Process Engineering, Economics and Profitability is here today. Is your business ready for the coming decade?

Technology Features

Electric calcination

Calix electric calcination is the next step in thermal mineral processing. The world is shifting from the use of fossil fuels over to clean, adaptable technologies. The Calix Technology enables this transition to clean fuels, while maintaining flexibility with process integration and energy source.

Processing of fines

Waste fines are a challenge for many mine and mineral processing sites. Fine material often has to be discarded due to low mineral concentration or difficulty in handling and processing of fine material. The Calix Technology overcomes all of these challenges by thermally processing fine material.

Higher extraction

The Calix Technology is able to produce an ultra-high surface area ‘mineral popcorn’ which enables higher extraction efficiency of some mineral types. Mineral processing Phase changes and chemical reactions can be done in seconds instead of hours. Calix can help you analyse where our high surface area technology fits in your process.
