At Calix we believe it’s not so much about what we do, it’s why we do it.  We’re driven to use our unique skills to repair, preserve and prevent future harm to our planet.

Because there is 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.
