Because there’s only one Earth. Mars is for quitters.
Calix is a team of dedicated people developing a unique, patented technology to provide industrial solutions that address global sustainability challenges.
The core technology is being used to develop more environmentally friendly solutions for advanced batteries, crop protection, aquaculture, wastewater, and carbon reduction.
Calix develops its technology via a global network of research and development collaborations, including governments, research institutes and universities, some of world’s largest companies, and a growing customer base and distributor network for its commercialised products and processes.
Solving global challenges has been the basis of our passion and our business for over a decade, in our quest to become a leading global innovator of industrial solutions for the environment.
Calix has unique potential to scale solutions to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Innovating for the Earth is the very essence of what we do.Our purpose explained
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).

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.
With global climate, energy, and sustainability challenges set to intensify, calix’s core technology is being used to develop more environmentally friendly solutions for a broad range of industries.
The application of the Calix technology to batteries could be a game changer in terms of providing cheaper and more sustainable energy storage solutions.Read more
