Sustainable Energy Solutions (SES) develops innovative solutions to sustainability problems within the energy industry. To date SES has 44 US patents issued, a further 17 pending and 20 patents issued internationally.
SES' Cryogenic Carbon Capture (CCC) technology eliminates most emissions from fossil fuels while enabling better use of intermittent renewables through grid scale energy storage. Carbon dioxide is frozen out from the exhaust gases and the solids are separated from the gases prior to the latter being vented to atmosphere. As well as removing >98% of the CO2 CCC also removes Nox, Sox and other pollutants.from exhaust gases.
It is projected to cost half as much as alternative processes and is a winning combination with Chart's IPSMR® process technology, brazed aluminum heat exchangers, storage tanks and mobile units.
Chart will use CCC technology and proprietary equipment to develop an integrated solution for high purity (99%) CO2 across a variety of end-use applications.Carbon dioxide can be liquefied, pumped to pressure and sent by pipeline to underground storage reserves, used in enhanced oil recovery and fuel manufacturing. High quality CO2 can be used in the merchant market for a variety of end-uses including food and beverage.
"Being able to work on a technology that has so much potential for doing so much good in the world is an extraordinarily gratifying thing to be involved with." Dr. Larry Baxter, co-founder and CTO.
