Cleantech advancements sometimes feature emerging concepts like artificial intelligence or carbon-based nanomaterials. But Euclid, Ohio, advanced materials startup Cratus is using a more familiar material: salt.

Salts, highly heated until they’re practically liquid, are a critical piece of Cratus’ large-scale energy storage technologies. The startup is commercializing a high temperature molten salt thermal energy storage system that can be paired with any power or heat source, but it works particularly well with solar power and nuclear power generation, said founder Andy Sherman
