SaltX Technology EU patent for calcium-looping solution
01 February 2024

SaltX Technology, based in Sweden, has been granted an EU patent for an electrified 'calcium looping' carbon capture solution where the company's patented Electric Arc Calciner (EAC) forms a central role.  

The method means that CO2 is captured from an emitter and bound with the help of lime and then transported to a central facility where the CO2 is separated using the EAC technology. As a result, industries do not need to make a significant investment of their own for CO2 separation and storage systems, which is a barrier to the increased implementation for industries. The method uses excess energy created during the capture process in the system, which reduces the total energy consumption for the process.  

Carl-Johan Linér, CEO of SaltX, says: "The patent opens up an exciting new market where our technology for electrification and CO2 separation has great potential to reduce CO2 emissions from industry greatly. The solution with separation and storage of CO2 at a central facility is unique, and we see a need for the solution in the market.”
