About Us

We use our proprietary technology to create value for investors and society by contributing to the decarbonisation of the metals and mining industry.

Our strategy is to roll out our technology across the mining and metals industry by partnering with major global companies, particularly in the iron ore and steel sectors, to reduce emissions and to share in the value we can create.

Our technology has wide applicability across numerous metals and minerals, and we are focussed on partnering with iron ore and steel companies given the scale of the opportunity to reduce emissions from one of the largest carbon emitting sectors.
