HTceramix SA (HTc) is a dynamic and rapidly progressing SME specialized in high-temperature electroceramic applications for energy and gas conversion. With high temperature membrane reactors as core competence, the company works as an innovation center in cooperation with many industrial and academic partners, and is located in Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland. HTc focuses its activities on market and product development, generating its revenues both through sales commission and engineering services.

Its competence in system integration of the in-house developed SOFCpower module, the HoTbox™(HB), gives it a competitive advantage when establishing partnerships with large OEM companies in the combined heat and power market.
