We are on a mission.


Renewable Iron Fuel Technology

We are RIFT. We are on a mission towards a sustainable future that is powered by clean and renewable energy. The use of renewable energy is accelerating, and the world continues to grow in its energy needs. We rethink traditional practices of fossil fuels and develop a suitable, clean alternative. Not just because we want to, but because our world needs it.

We are developers, engineers, scientists, learners, enablers, believers, dreamers, doers, and disruptors. We aim to reduce the global carbon footprint by revolutionizing energy-intensive industries with the Iron Fuel Technology™.

Learn about our journey so far.

The idea of the Iron Fuel Technology™ was first raised in a European Space Agency project. Why not use iron as a clean fuel? This question was the seed of the iron fuel innovation.

While the first academia published about the idea, three students and professor Philip de Goey of TU/e materialized the concept. After trying, testing and failing, they succeeded. The created a flame, as small as a candle light, that stole the hearts of many energy tech enthusiasts. Shortly after, student team SOLID was founded who realized the first lab-scale and industrial proofs of principle. Late 2020, three ex-members of SOLID founded RIFT, dedicating themselves to commercial roll-out.
