Converting Coal Ash to New Cash
Elixsys utilizes a proprietary sequence of technology to extract minerals and metal from coal ash. This produces a new chemical supply chain, a new source of revenue for our coal ash partners, and a method of reducing environmental risk from coal ash storage or disposition.
As a chemical company, we have ingrained safety in everything we do. Our modular chemical and production system for manufacturing high grade mineral compounds and technology metals from coal combustion products and gas & oil production fluids is the cornerstone of our business.
The executive, operations, and development team is comprised of industry and academia leaders with a practical application focus. Our business model is centered around production partnerships as we are the cutting edge tech company with a promise of eliminating coal ash waste and reusing it for mineral and technology metal supply.
Spend time with us and witness safety, enthusiasm, and proven applied technology solutions at work for you.

Today’s coal combustion products (CCP) market is ripe for disruption. Whoever develops and deploys the next generation of technologies to extract the valuable materials contained within CCPs will own the platforms to enable tomorrow’s products - globally in multiple market sectors.
Elixsys offers our utility partners a value-packed option to extract valuable materials from this energy by-product. Our technology development applies a modular approach to extract gypsum, industrial metals, and rare earth elements through the entire research and technology (R&T) continuum.
Burning coal produces a variety of solid wastes known as coal combustion products (CCPs). These include coal ash (fly ash and bottom ash), boiler slag, flue-gas desulfurization (FGD) gypsum. A large U.S. coal-fired power plant can produce up to 15,000 tons of ash a day. A large amount of this ash is currently stored in impoundments, used in abandoned mines, or disposed of in landfills where it presents risks to the environment.
Elixsys was founded specifically for this reason, providing our utility partners with a value packed option to extract valuable materials from these waste by-products. Our technology development applies a modular approach to extract gypsum, industrial metals, and rare earth elements through the entire research, development, demonstration, and deployment (RDD&D) continuum. Our process provides production capacity that accommodates these unique materials and product requirements of our coal energy partners to unlock their untapped value potential, reduce operating costs, mitigate operational impact to the environment, and reduce demand on natural resources.
The market potential for these products is currently valued at $90B. Our products may be used in fertilizer and feed applications, rubber products and plastics, coatings, petroleum refining, and chemical industries.
