A compact and clean fuel
A revolutionary method of storing energy in a circular and CO2-free manner
For a livable future, we must cut our CO2 emissions drastically. Over 50% of the world’s CO2 emissions are caused by the electricity and heat producing industries and the maritime transport sector. These industries cannot bring this 50% down to 0% because there is no carbon-free fuel that can fulfill their energy needs while meeting process requirements.
Looking towards the future, SOLID and its partners bring forward a revolutionary solution, advocating iron as a fuel. Iron fuel is circular, compact, CO2-free and cost-effective. Besides that, it’s also easy to store, scalable and safe, making it the green solution for the electricity and heat producing industries and the maritime transport sector.
Innovative & enjoyable
SOLID is an ambitious student team of Eindhoven University of Technology that aims to enable access to clean and renewable energy for anyone, at any time. With 30 interdisciplinary students, we create an ecosystem for iron fuels as circular energy carriers. To do so, SOLID participates in multiple consortia and works with partners to develop both the technology and the ecosystem. Being part of SOLID means being part of an innovative and most enjoyable community. In our journey towards making iron fuel a success, we lay the foundation for a sustainable future.
