Our electric technology has the power to transform fossil-heavy industrial processes. And when we join together with our partners, it has the power to transform humanity.
We are already working with some of the world’s leading industrial producers, technology companies, academic partners, and politicians to ensure the wide adoption of our electrically-driven technology. Together we can create the positive change the world needs and cut more than 30% of industrial CO2 emissions, equalling 7% of total global CO2 emissions.
Coolbrook’s revolutionary technology uses electrification powered by clean energy to drastically cut the CO2 emissions in steam cracking, one of the world’s most polluting industrial processes. We are thrilled to be partnering with ABB, a global leader in electrification, to accelerate the commercialization of this transformative technology at scale.
Together with ABB, we can roll out our RDR technology to all of the world’s major ethylene producers, paving the way for the reduction of global CO2 emissions by 300 million tons a year.

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.
“Coolbrook has set out to build a committed and comprehensive ecosystem around our technology to commercialize it as soon as possible. Together with our partners in industry, academia, the public sector and key decision-makers, we can roll out this revolutionary technology and achieve significant emission reductions in the most energy and CO2 intensive industrial processes, which until now have been considered impossible to electrify.”
