Coolbrook’s revolutionary technology replaces the burning of fossil fuels with electrification powered by clean, renewable energy. Our technology electrifies steam cracking in petrochemical production and high temperature process heating in the production of cement, steel, iron and chemicals.
Coolbrook’s novel RotoDynamic Heater (RDH) technology uses electrification to eliminate the burning of fossil fuels in the highest-emitting industrial processes. Powered by electricity from renewable sources, RDH is the only process heating technology in the world that can cut up to 30% of industrial CO2 emissions and over 7% of global CO2 emissions annually.
CEMEX, a global leader in construction materials, is the first company to announce that it will use Coolbrook’s RDH technology to drastically reduce CO2 emissions in the production of cement, one of the highest-emitting industrial processes.
Electrification is critical for governments, industry and humanity to avoid to the perils of climate change and meet the net-zero target. Coolbrook’s groundbreaking RotoDynamic Heater (RDH) and RotoDynamic Reactor (RDR) can electrify industrial sectors that until now have been considered almost impossible to electrify, including the steel, cement and chemical industries.
Our RDR and RDH technology electrifies fossil-heavy industrial processes.
Combining space science, turbomachinery, and mechanical and chemical engineering, our revolutionary rotating machinery technology has the potential to cut at least 30% of the world’s industrial CO2 emissions by electrifying traditionally fossil-fuel-heavy industrial processes.
RDH – RotoDynamic Heater
RotoDynamic Heater (RDH) is the only electric process heating technology able to reach 1700°C without burning fossil fuels. This enables it to replace fossil-fired furnaces and kilns with electric heating in industrial processes.
RDR – RotoDynamic Reactor
Using electrification powered by renewable energy, RotoDynamic Reactor (RDR) is the only technology in the world capable of eliminating 100% of the CO2 emissions created in the steam cracking process, the first and most polluting step in the production of plastic.
This game-changing technology already exists today and a large and growing number of global industrial players and governments have already expressed great interest in using it to cut CO2 emissions and meet crucial climate targets.
Our RDH and RDR technologies are currently being piloted, with commercial demonstration projects beginning in 2022. The technology can be retrofitted to existing production plants and will be ready for large-scale use in 2024.
Most national and international climate goals aim to reach net-zero by 2030 or 2050. This is crucial to limit global warming to 1.5°C or below. The biggest challenge lies in hard-to-abate sectors like the cement, steel, plastic and chemical industries, which account for 25% of total global CO2 emissions.
RDR and RDH is the only electric technology in the world that can eliminate CO2 emissions from the most polluting part of industrial production processes, enabling us to cut more than 7% of global CO2 emissions annually.
“"RDR has the potential to really become the new industry standard in Olefins production."”
