Innovator Energy develops breakthrough solutions to global energy challenges, with a primary focus in capturing and converting carbon dioxide emissions. Innovator Energy has developed and patented an unprecedented CO2 capture process that uses 96% less energy than the most efficient existing technologies and captures CO2 at less than $8 per ton. The team is based out of Yale University (New Haven, CT) and is constructing demonstration prototypes in San Antonio, TX.
Flue gas CO2 is captured using Innovator Energy’s breakthrough CO2 capture process, which uses a novel mechanism to separate CO2 from flue gas. The CO2 capture system in Round 2 requires 96% less energy than existing amine technologies. Innovator Energy then converts this captured CO2 into acetic acid and syngas through a proprietary process. Innovator Energy’s Round 2 demonstration prototype is under construction in San Antonio, TX.
