The Project

The team’s high efficiency solid sorbents that show superior carbon capture performance (up to 800% higher), a low energy penalty for regeneration (>50% lower), and a simplified process design (30% lower in capital) compared to current benchmark carbon capture technology. The PowerBridgeNY funds were used to scale up production to the 10kg level.
