The Iron Fuel Advantage

Sustainable heat solutions for industries

In a world grappling with the urgent need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, industrial heat generation stands responsible for a staggering 20% of global emissions. Current alternatives for decarbonization – electrification and burning hydrogen – fall short for 80% of industries due to grid limitations. 

At RIFT, our mission is clear: decarbonize industrial heat and substantially reduce the global carbon footprint. Enter Iron Fuel Technology™, our game-changing clean energy solution that revolutionizes industrial heat production. By utilizing iron in powder form, our technology delivers CO₂-free energy, offering versatile applications for different scales and needs. The circular process of rusting and unrusting iron enables sustainable energy production, ushering in a cleaner era for heat-intensive sectors.

Key benefits

CO₂ free

The combustion of iron fuel releases significant energy without producing direct CO₂ emissions.

Circular

Iron Fuel Technology™ operates in a circular manner, allowing it to be reused multiple times.

compact

Iron fuel boasts a high energy density, ensuring efficient energy storage and transport.

ultralow nox

The combustion process incurs ultra-low nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions.

Competitive

Iron Fuel Technology™ offers cost-effective energy, rivaling or surpassing other clean technologies.

safe

Working principle

Iron Fuel Technology™ operates like a rechargeable battery for heat generation. Visualize iron powder as a unique energy carrier, akin to a charged battery. Through controlled combustion, this iron fuel transforms into high-temperature energy, serving diverse needs across industries.  

In the combustion phase, iron fuel efficiently burns in a specialized boiler, producing hot water, steam, or hot air. Remarkably, this process avoids direct CO₂ emissions and maintains ultra-low NOx emissions. 

Post-combustion, the production process converts rust (iron oxide) back into iron fuel using a hydrogen source. This flexibility completes the sustainable cycle, offering continuous and environmentally friendly energy solutions. 

Flexible energy logistics

versatile integration

Iron Fuel Technology™ seamlessly integrates one production system with multiple boiler systems, offering scalability and operational flexibility.

dynamic solutions

Enabling efficient storage and transport, Iron Fuel Technology™ adapts to regional, continental, and intercontinental distances, addressing diverse energy needs globally.

global energy trade

With its unique capabilities in storage and transport, Iron Fuel Technology™ emerges as a catalyst for global clean energy trade.
