A Unique Capture Process
GT uses custom equipment and proprietary (dry) amine-based chemical “sorbents” bonded to porous honeycomb ceramic “monoliths” that together act as carbon sponges, efficiently adsorbing CO2 directly from the atmosphere, from smokestacks, or from a combination of both. The captured CO2 is stripped off and collected using low-temperature steam (85-100° C) ideally sourced from residual/process heat at low- or no-cost. The output is 98% pure CO2 at standard temperature & pressure. Nothing but steam and electricity is consumed, and no other effluents or emissions are created. The entire process is mild, safe, and carbon negative.
Global Thermostat’s Carbon Capture & Utilization Plants make unlimited amounts of CO2; produced reliably, at low cost, and on-site wherever needed, ready for commercial use, eliminating long pipelines and transportation costs.
Modular & Small Footprint: GT plants are completely modular – from a single 50,000 tonne/yr. Module to a 40-Module, 2MM tonne/yr. Plant, and larger – a GT plant grows by adding more modules. GT Plants also have a small footprint – capturing from 20-500 tonnes of CO2/yr./m2 or more, depending on the embodiment used.
Plants can be Stand-Alone (Pure Air), or Co-Located with large emitters – both new & existing. In fact, integrating GT’s post-combustion process with an existing power plant is quite simple, and has been done with just a single day of power plant down-time. GT enables truly Carbon Negative electricity generation: a GT plant utilizing the residual heat of, and capturing the CO2-rich flue gases from, an adjacent fossil fueled power plant can capture substantially more CO2 than that plant emits. Similarly, GT can utilize the “harmful” heat byproduct of PV solar farms to power its Plants, turning the farms into giant carbon sinks, while increasing their profitability through CO2 sales.
Unlike some other green initiatives, GT requires no government subsidies or Carbon Credits to be economical and profitable.
