Low-Energy-Consumption CO2 Capture and Conversion

About Us

We are a group of passionate and hard-working individuals who together form a strong clean energy technology development team. The group members love the earth and its climate so much, and they want future generations to enjoy their lives within great environment. Accordingly, the team has been committed to innovating environmentally friendly CO2 capture and conversion technologies. Each member is excited to have the opportunity to participate in the Carbon XPRIZE competition. The team is eager to demonstrate its new CO2 capture and conversion technologies and industrialize them as soon as possible. The team is motivated to realize the dream of “carbon, dependable but fully controllable and economically recyclable”.

Tech Information

The team is using a transformational catalyst to significantly reduce CO2 capture (sorption and desorption) energy consumption and thus the cost. Then, the captured CO2 is converted into fuels and chemicals by using a regenerable material and H2O. Material regeneration is realized by using renewable resources through a new looping process.
