WHO WE ARE
We are SOLID, a multidisciplinary team of students from Eindhoven University of Technology, developing a sustainable energy storage system with iron powder as circular energy carrier.
We burn iron powder, and use the generated high temperature heat as energy. This combustion occurs without the formation of CO2 emissions - the only leftover of the reaction is the iron oxide, known as rust. By making use of sustainable techniques, like green hydrogen, the iron oxides can be turned back into iron powder.
Hence, iron powder can be used as a CO2-free and circular fuel.
WHAT WE DO
POWERED BY PARTNERS
The energy transition challenge is not to be overcome if parties don't collaborate. SOLID is eager to explore more opportunities for partnerships and connect complementary developments in various contexts.
