CEMEX and Synhelion ace the First “Hot Solar” Cement Trial

By the middle of the 21st century the global energy system will hopefully be very different, with clean energy, clean fuels and clean heat supporting a highly decarbonized future. It will require so many changes in how we have done these things so far, that we can barely imagine such [...]

CEMEX and Synhelion Achieve Breakthrough in Cement Production with Concentrated Solar Power

For the first time ever, CEMEX and Synhelion successfully connected the clinker production process with the Synhelion solar receiver, producing solar clinker. This revolutionary innovation is an initial step to develop fully solar-driven cement plants. CEMEX and Synhelion produced the world’s first solar clinker at the IMDEA Energy solar tower [...]

The acquisition will bring together the two companies’ complementary technologies, allowing Synhelion to offer a complete system for the production of solar fuels. Heliokon co-founder Patrick Hilger and Synhelion [...]

Synhelion and Top Hydrogen Firm Advance Solar Hydrogen

The ETH spin-off Synhelion is working on commercializing its very high-temperature solar thermochemical fuels (like jet fuel and hydrogen) and has already formed partnerships with several larger firms making cement or aviation fuel to advance step by step towards its goal of 100% carbon neutral fuels by 2030. DLR [...]

New partnership between Synhelion and Wood accelerates market entry of solar fuels

Swiss solar fuel pioneer Synhelion has entered into a partnership with Wood, a global leader in consulting and engineering across energy and the built environment to rapidly bring solar-based synthetic fuels to market. The two companies are drawing on their strengths – Synhelion’s innovative solar technology and Wood’s industrially established [...]

CEMEX and Synhelion to Demo Zero CO2 Cement

The major global cement producer CEMEX has begun work with the solar fuel start-up Synhelion to demonstrate the world’s first zero emissions cement production with high temperature solar. Synhelion is a solar research spin-off from ETH that uses an advanced concentrated solar thermal (CST) technology to generate temperatures at up [...]

Switzerland’s International Airport to Buy Synhelion’s First Solar Fuel

Flughafen Zürich AG aims to cut its CO2 emissions to zero net by 2050. The coronavirus has done nothing to change this plan. That is why the company has just entered into a partnership with the young high-tech enterprise Synhelion SA to support research and development work on synthetic [...]
