"Revolutionizing Heavy Industry: SaltX's Green Tech Breakthrough" replacing fossil fuels with an electrified process

SaltX is leading the charge to revolutionize the cement and lime industry, responsible for a staggering 8% of global emissions – surpassing even the United States. Their groundbreaking process, using electric plasma generators, is a game-changer in reducing CO2 production during material production.



Their innovation has already caught the attention of some of the biggest names in heavy industry, who are currently reliant on very carbon-intensive processes, including SSAB.



Their goal is to help facilitate the removal of significant carbon emitting processes for a variety of heavy industry players - and that’s what makes them a true Changemaker!







SaltX is utilizing an electric plasma generator to heat limestone, capturing the resulting gas as a propellant and extracting quicklime for steel production. Already gaining traction, SaltX has partnered with major industry players like SSAB, offering a CO2-neutral approach to steel production.

The way their process replaces traditional stone with a proprietary powder in ovens, slashing stone usage and storing generated CO2 for later use in the supply chain.

Their mission is to empower businesses in steel, concrete, and heavy materials to significantly cut emissions.

SaltX aims to eliminate 250,000 tonnes of CO2 by 2027, replacing fossil fuels with an electrified process. We’re incredibly proud to name them our latest We Don’t Have Time Changemaker - and if you want to catch them with our other Changemakers in an open panel, then click below to sign up for our Meet The Changemaker event at COP28!
