Project in Focus

Magnesium Metal

Magnesium is synonymous with light-weighting and can be used in lieu of steel or aluminum in a variety of structural applications. But high prices, production imbalance, and volatility have kept Mg from flourishing. We aim to bring production cost down by using a direct production route known as carbothermal reduction. With specialized process and reactor design, modern control and automation, and ore-to-ingot testing capability, we are bringing to market the world’s cleanest and most economical Mg production process. Together, with our affiliates, Big Blue Technologies is paving the way toward a lighter future.

Flying Close to the Sun

Big Blue Technologies specializes in high temperature chemistry and reactor design. Our experience range is up to 2200 degrees Celsius in vacuum, inert, and/or reactive atmospheres.

We’ve made fuels, ceramics, metals, and various specialty products.

We’ve built reactors powered by electricity, natural gas, and solarthermal energy.

We believe that post-modern industrialism is picking up in pace and a new age of data-driven heavy industry must be balanced by rapid experimental prototyping of new process and reactor concepts.



We are results-driven and emphasize output over logged hours for fast in-house prototyping of custom reactor solutions that includes design, construction, and operation.
