develops a sustainable energy storage system using iron powder as a circular energy carrier

About us

For a livable future, we must cut our CO2 emissions drastically. Over 40% of the world’s CO2 emissions are caused by electricity and heat-producing industries and the maritime transport sector. Currently, these industries cannot completely bring this 40% down to 0% because the existing carbon-free energy alternatives, just do not offer an efficient and cost-effective solution to every application, while meeting process requirements.

We strive to enable access to clean and renewable energy for anyone, at any time

Iron Fuel

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. 

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.
