Our history

Calix has moved strategically to commercialise its unique technology.

Calix was founded in 2005 by Connor Horley (deceased) and Mark Sceats (current Executive Director and Chief Scientist) to patent, develop and commercialise a novel mineral processing technology that was initially developed by Connor.

Calix tested this Calix Flash Calciner (CFC) processing concept in a batch processing plant at Jacobs Well, Queensland. In 2010, Calix established its first continuous flash calciner pilot plant at Bacchus Marsh, Victoria (commissioned in September 2010).

Awards & recognition

Innovative platform technology

The core technology platform is a reinvention of the kiln process, which can produce high purity, high surface area products that have high levels of reactivity.

New materials produced by Calix technology are proving to have similar reactive properties to Nano Particles, without the safety concerns or high cost of production.

Calix technology also allows for the direct separation of CO2, allowing it to be used for CO2 reduction in traditionally CO2 intensive industries, such as lime and cement production.
