Metalot works closely together with an extensive network of national and international companies, knowledge institutions, investors and government agencies. We distinguish between the following categories:
The synergy between the partners accelerates the development of revolutionary technologies in the field of metals and energy and TU/e obviously wants to be part of this initiative.
The Provincial Authority of North Brabant supports Metalot in its mission to accelerate the energy transition by boosting promising technologies and systems and preparing them for the market.
The Municipality of Cranendonck sees Metalot as an important driver for the local and regional economy. Our goal is to guarantee liveability in our towns and cities in the future.
As Nyrstar, we are proud of our zinc smelter. As a result of our improvement programmes, we are now one of the most energy-efficient smelting facilities in the world. And we also continue to set higher standards for ourselves in terms of environmental protection, safety and production. So there is a seamless fit between Metalot and our ambitious narrative.
TU/e EIRES sees Metalot as a springboard for further developing, scaling up and bringing new technologies from the university lab to the market. In addition, Metalot will set up consortia with companies and develop development programs in which students and researchers from knowledge institutions such as TU / e EIRES can conduct fundamental research.
