Innovation in Elkem

Future oriented and ambitious innovation strategy has been the foundation for Elkem’s development and success throughout more than 110 years. Ever since Sam Eyde established Elkem in 1904 our core activity has been to develop new products, markets and production methods.

Elkem’s innovation strategy covers both incremental innovation and step-change innovation. The core of Elkem Business System is continuous improvement. By always looking for improvement potentials, and using EBS tools to describe the potential, find solutions and measure results, Elkem achieves progress that keeps it equipped to meet future challenges.

However, to keep our position as a world-leading producer of silicon and carbon-based materials Elkem must also seek step change innovation and radical improvements.

We offer customers and collaborating partners more than 10.000 square meters with advanced pilot testing facilities, laboratories and workshops.
