Proof of Concept

Combustion, 2017-2018

The goal

To prove that iron fuel combustion is possible, a proof of concept was built in a lab at Eindhoven University of Technology. This proof of concept demonstrated that iron fuel can serve as a magnificent sustainable energy carrier. This project was carried out by SOLID and Metalot with the backing of the Open Mind-program of NWO and a contribution from Metropoolregio Eindhoven.

Our approach

The proof of concept required months and months of researching, testing, failing and starting over, but SOLID and Metalot managed to create world’s first 20kW iron fuel burner. This showed the potential of storing energy in iron fuel to the world. As a result, new projects and partnerships were defined.
