A purpose-led company

Calix is a team of dedicated people developing a patented technology to provide industrial solutions that address global sustainability challenges. The core technology is being used to develop environmentally friendly solutions for advanced batteries, crop protection, aquaculture, wastewater, and carbon reduction.

Calix has identified some key global challenges that have emerged in the last decade and are increasingly putting our planet at risk. By aligning innovation and development initiatives with the SDGs, Calix is driven to make an impactful and meaningful contribution to solving global challenges.

Because there’s only one Earth. Mars is for quitters.

Leading edge technology

At the core of Calix’s diverse and versatile innovations is a pioneering technology that re-imagines the calcination process, enabling new applications and materials that solve global challenges.

Nano-active materials produced by the Calix technology are being used in wastewater treatment, lake remediation, aquaculture, crop protection, and advanced batteries. Calix technology also allows for the direct separation of CO2, allowing it to be used for carbon dioxide reduction in traditionally carbon dioxide intensive industries, such as lime and cement production.

In Europe, fungicides and pesticides need to be re-registered every 10 years to ensure they comply with stringent safety standards. Many of the products in use currently are unlikely to achieve re-registration, thus creating demand for safer alternatives.

The cost to develop a new crop protection product averages US$250 million and 10 years but farmers need safe, affordable crop protection products now.

Find out how Calix’s BOOSTER-Mag can increase yields and boosts resistance to pests and diseases while making crop protection safer.
