The Benefits of
Molten Oxide Electrolysis
We’re electrifying steelmaking using clean energy to decarbonize one of the most carbon intensive industries in the world. Plus, our platform is cost competitive, modular and scalable.
Zero CO2 Emissions
Iron Ore + Electricity = Liquid Iron + Oxygen
We’ve removed carbon from the equation. The formula is simple. The process is tough. We’ve proved it at laboratory scale and are refining it at industrial scale. And, we’re already producing molten metal in our test production cell.
Molten Oxide Electrolysis (MOE) is a simplified process that is energy efficient. MOE converts low- and mid-grade iron ore fines directly into high purity molten iron. This enables the broadest possible supply of feedstock and protects against price volatility of premium ores. Our process eliminates the need for coke production, iron ore processing, blast furnace reduction and the basic oxygen furnace refinement.
Our MOE technology platform can be scaled to meet production capacity targets. About the size of a school bus, MOE cells can be added to achieve a tailormade manufacturing solution from thousand to million tonnage output.
