Developing a leading-edge technology

Calix re-imagines the calcination process, enabling new applications and materials that solve global challenges.

  • Nano-active materials: new materials produced by Calix are proving to have similar properties to highly active nano-materials, without the safety concerns and high cost, but with all the benefits.
  • CO2 capture: when processing limestone, cement meal, or magnesite, gas exhaust is pure CO2.
  • Renewable energy-ready: Calix’s technology facilitates mineral and industrial processing to renewable energy.
