Heatrix is a deep-tech climate startup based in Bremen, Germany, with the mission to replace fossil fuels in energy-intensive industries, like cement, steel and chemicals.

Our modular Heatrix system combines an electric air heater with a thermal energy storage to convert renewable electricity into carbon-free high-temperature process heat. With an air stream outlet temperature of up to 1500 °C and a continuous heat output in Megawatt-scale, Heatrix can decarbonize high emission industries across Europe and beyond.

As heat is transferred via hot air streams, the Heatrix system can be simply integrated into existing plants via insulated pipes. This “plug & play” approach leads to low upfront costs, short downtimes, and reduced risks for plant owners.

We’re running out of time! To accelerate the deployment and development of climate tech, we need a strong ecosystem that helps to facilitate innovation, entrepreneurship, collaboration, policy, and funding.
