Concentrating carbon matters.
Our goals are simple.
Use virtually any fuel (easy or difficult).
We do this in the distributed power market at a system level on new reciprocating engines and industrial gas turbine equipment, but we also retrofit existing engines, with no significant engine hardware changes.
This unique technology by CarbonPoint has been developed to produce Power and CO2 for companies who benefit from these for their operations, while staying carbon neutral or even negative.
The patented technology began with the U.S. Navy with their need to develop undersea propulsion technology that required no gaseous exhaust. However, the technology needed to be modified to become a viable solution for applications on land, and the CarbonPoint proven carbon capture process technology was born.
Low CO2 concentration makes capture difficult and more expensive and not economically viable. This distributed market is served by reciprocating piston engines and industrial gas turbines. In addition to the other emissions they generate, these engines exhaust CO2 to the atmosphere.
This market is completely unserved by carbon capture today. Most of the distributed market has an exhaust CO2 concentration of 3-11% (older “rich burn” engines run at 10-11% on natural gas).
In addition to the other emissions they generate, “Open Cycle” engines exhaust CO2 directly to the atmosphere. This market is completely unserved by carbon capture today.
The patented Semi-Closed Cycle System
CarbonPoint has developed a patented Semi-Closed Cycle (SCC) that concentrates exhaust CO2, enabling economically-viable carbon capture for distributed power.
The SCC can be adapted to individual application needs and equipment, and is applicable to both new and retrofit applications with a market potential >$100B.
The components we use as part of the SCC are articles of commerce. You won’t always use all these components, depending on the fuel, engine type, system size, and other application specifics, but the SCC will optimize the exhaust for economically viable capture in all cases. We deploy the SCC via relationships with established Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) firms, guaranteeing cost, schedule, performance, and bonding.
NON-EMISSIVE POWER, 95+% CARBON CAPTURE
ENABLES GREEN SYNGAS & SYNFUEL ENERGY PRODUCTION
SCC PROVEN CARBON CAPTURE TECHNOLOGY
45Q TAX CREDITS & INTERNATIONAL CARBON CREDITS
PROVIDES CARBON NEUTRAL & CARBON NEGATIVE OPPORTUNITIES
The patented Semi-Closed Cycle (SCC) System
SCC technology de-risked via Naval applications & investment to date
Exclusive license from Navy IP for commercial use (5 patents)
Requires no significant engine hardware changes
Applicable to retrofit and new installations
Successfully demonstrated at commercial scale
Enables CO2 capture costs lower than available incentives/tax credits
The CarbonPoint SCC has its roots in Air Independent Propulsion of submarines, weapons, and undersea vehicles.
We have exclusive license to the Navy IP and most of our new patents are granted, with coverage in over 40 countries.
Our SCC exhaust concentration does not require engine changes, so it is applicable to both new and retrofit. Most importantly, we have proven it works in these distributed land-based applications.
Over 20% of global CO2 emissions are now constrained by some price control or tax, and that percentage is only increasing. CarbonPoint secures the viability of distributed power.
