Project Lead

SaltX is on a mission to erase industries’ dependency on fossil fuels, starting with the quicklime and cement industries that stand for more than 8% of the world’s CO2 emissions. We innovate and industrialize electrification technologies aiming to make a shift in the gigaton scale to reach net-zero industrial emissions.
We create value by being a strategic partner to heavy-emission industries that are committed to decarbonize their operations. The industrial dependency on fossil-fuels in high-temperature heating industries can finally become history thanks to our patented innovation- the Electric Arc Calciner (eAC). Our electric plasma technology replaces fossil-driven heating with renewable electricity and captures the CO2 emissions released during the heating process.
