Public Profile

Anchored in work initiated and brought to use-condition at MIT - previously doing business as Boston Electrometallurgical Corporation - using the Molten Oxide Electrolysis (MOE) process, Boston Metal is usefully understood as radically changing the way metals are produced. By commercializing the MIT electrolytic metals production technology developed, what they are doing is described by one of those involved, as effectively "translating a coffee cup size experiment, up to long duration testing at a semi-industrial scale". The outcome is the capability to produce steel with no CO2 emissions: ferroaloys produced without alumninum. MOE provides the metals industry with a more efficient, lower cost, and greener solution for the production of a wide array of metals and alloys from a wide variety of feedstocks. With the added benefit of being less expensive, the MOE process removed flourine and chlorine from the refining process with the added benefit of emitting only oxygen as a byproduct instead of the carbon dioxide that defines the traditional approaches.
