INERCO Ingeniería, Tecnología y Consultoría enters a Strategic Business Alliance Agreement with the energy storage company SaltX Technology – listed on Nasdaq First North Premier –. The partners enter a joint development plan where the first step is to build a pre-commercial pilot in Megawatt scale during 2020. INERCO has a strong reputation within thermal power generation engineering and technology. The Energy Storage system to be designed will be charged using a non-dispatchable renewable energy or high temperature waste heat. This system will also allow a controlled discharge in periods of high energy demand, as decarbonised high temperature heat (producing steam for electricity generation or heat for direct industrial use). The goal is to lower the dependency on fossil fuels and increase the flexibility of thermal and renewable power plants. The partners have also agreed to a road map for commercialising the solution. The target markets for the alliance will initially be Spain, Portugal, Central and South America and Mexico. INERCO will be responsible for the development of the first pilot and will also lead the funding of it. “INERCO finds relevant advantages in nanocoated salts for thermochemical energy storage, which have led us to establish a strong partnership with SaltX. The future of the energy sector undoubtedly implies the use of robust and cost-effective energy storage solutions to be integrated with hybridised conventional and renewable energy sources. SaltX´s nanocoated salts present intrinsic advantages with respect to systems based on other energy storage principles, such as those using molten salts, concrete, or electric batteries, due to their improved energy efficiency, management and safety characteristics. With this technological approach INERCO is convinced about finding competitive solutions for the new decarbonised energy scenario related to both power generation and energy intensive industries”, says Pedro Marín, CEO of INERCO.

SaltX’s new pilot plant – a step towards a fossil free future During 2021, SaltX Technology has built a pilot plant at Vattenfall’s premise in Stockholm to optimize and further develop its technology since the pilot installation in Berlin 2019. SaltX has been given the opportunity to build a test plant at Vattenfall’s Heating plant in Bollmora, Stockholm. The pilot plant has been under construction for a year and enables storage of renewable energy with both a charging reactor and a discharging reactor. Both reactors are of a previously known technology that has been adapted to SaltX’s nanocoated salt and enables both economic and technical scalability. -We must be able to construct large-scale sustainable, long duration energy storage technology, to make the energy sector’s transition to fossil free energy sources possible, says Carl-Johan Linér, CEO at SaltX Technology. SaltX’s technical development of fossil free energy production started with a pilot plant at Vattenfall´s site in Berlin and continues now in Bollmora. When using existing premises and surrounding support functions in Vattenfall’s buildings makes the projects more resource efficient and circular. The plant is in the final phase of mechanical and electrical assembly, and thereafter the test program will begin. This installation will move SaltX technology from step five to seven on the TRL (Technology Readiness Level, scale 0 - 9). -Being able to build large-scale pilot plants is very important to us. There are no shortcuts to proving the energy storage performance. We must build, test, and document the results. A lot can be proven in the lab environment, but this will be the proof of our technology, says Corey Blackman, CTO of SaltX Technology. -We are following the development of different types of energy storage technologies, for storing both electricity and heat. By hosting SaltX´s large-scale thermochemical energy storage pilot plant at our Heating plant in Bollmora, we hope to contribute to the development of this technology says Katarina Eklund, Vattenfall’s plant manager. The pilot plant is an important step in SaltX’s growth and both parties are looking into the opportunity of using the Heating plant as a long-term test center to further optimize and prepare for commercialization of the system. -I am grateful that Vattenfall has given us the opportunity to build our pilot at their facilities and for a constructive continuous dialogue about future opportunities, where both companies can contribute to making the next generation fossil free, concludes Carl-Johan Linér

Breakthrough in production of “green cement” – results verified by industry experts SaltX Technology has previously communicated about its innovation - Electric Arc Calciner (EAC), and the successful results to produce "green quicklime”. The company is now announcing successful and verified results for electric- and climate-neutral cement production. The cement industry is one of the largest carbon dioxide emitters globally, accounting for about 7 percent of the world's total emissions. To be able to meet the global climate goals of reducing carbon dioxide emissions, the cement industry needs to shift its production to renewable energy and eliminate carbon dioxide emissions in the manufacturing process. This technology solves both challenges. The technological innovation called Electric Arc Calciner (EAC) electrifies cement production with renewable energy, and the carbon dioxide released during the manufacturing process comes out as a byproduct - ready for sequestration. This means that the process is very energy efficient compared to other technologies where the CO2 must be captured in a new separate process. Nick B Winter at WHD Microanalysis, who is one of the specialists that has analyzed the material, says: “We have examined several samples of the SaltX-produced material using scanning electron microscopy and the results are clear: SaltX has succeeded in producing clinker with the same clinker mineral characteristics as conventional clinker but using electric plasma heating instead of a traditional rotary kiln” The verified test results are a breakthrough that marks the start of the climate-neutral production of Portland cement clinker, the main ingredient in the most common type of cement and one of the world's most widely used building materials. Carl-Johan Linér, CEO of SaltX: "We are delighted to say that we have succeeded in the impossible - to make cement with electricity in an industrial process! I am very pleased with our team that has managed to achieve this. We are now moving forward quickly and planning for a robust industrial production process.” The process has been tested in SaltX 300 kW pilot plant. The company will now continue the development of the technology and optimize the process to achieve an industrial-scale and homogeneous production of Portland cement clinker. The initiative has received positive reactions from the construction industry, where "green cement" has a major impact potential on the industry’s targets to significantly reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
