Southwire has joined forces with British climate tech leader Levidian to bring their innovative decarbonization technology to North America for the first time.

The collaboration will see the installation of Levidian’s LOOP technology at Southwire where it will capture carbon from methane to produce a hydrogen-rich blend gas. The teams will also be working on useful applications for the hydrogen and graphene, which can be used as a high-quality additive to increase the performance of materials as wide-ranging as concrete, batteries and plastics.

 “This collaboration with Southwire marks an important first step in our expansion into North America and our mission to help decarbonize some of the important sectors on the planet,” said Levidian CEO John Hartley. “By deploying our LOOP technology at Southwire’s facilities, we're not just reducing carbon emissions. We're reshaping the landscape of sustainable industrial practices.”

As one of the world’s leading manufacturers of wire and cable, Southwire delivers power to millions of people around the world. This partnership reflects the company’s commitment to innovation and remaining generationally sustainable in the electrical industry. 

“This cooperation marks a significant stride towards our sustainability goals as we conduct exploratory work in graphene and hydrogen production and their potential applications,” said Axel Schlumberger, senior vice president of research and development at Southwire.

Levidian has also announced its intention to establish a new base in the US, including a new manufacturing hub for its LOOP devices to serve customers across North America.
