Our partner CoalTech Ltd. is a LSE-listed technology fund, which belongs to Bahrein-backed company Clean Invest Africa. Their Italian engineers developed a unique solution to process coal fines to pellets and proved in pilot projects in South Africa the technology’s technical and commercial viability. In order to upscale this innovation on key markets outside of Africa, the joint venture CoalTech S.à.r.l. has been founded.
From the perspective of Creon Capital, the CoalTech investment is a classic case of upscaling an existing business. Since the CoalTech solution is proven, the company had to leave their VC-stage and develop the business. The technology ensures to process this waste to a valuable product, while the companies solve their environmental challenges.
