CARBON BLADE TECHNOLOGY

Distributed Direct Air Capture (DAC) Solution

THE BLADES

The carbon-blade collects CO2 from ambient air.  This proprietary design allows the blades to rotate in low wind speeds circulating an electrochemical solvent that absorbs CO2.

NATURE BASED DESIGN

The vertical design allows light wind to spin the blades maximizing the contact with air. Centrifugal force further circulates the solution throughout the thin membrane. 

CLOSED LOOP SYSTEM

The electrochemical solution is recycled throughout the entire system. The only  waste product is oxygen returning to the air.

CARBON-BLADE 

The Carbon-Blade itself is a low-cost liquid-gas contactor. Sodium hydroxide absorbs the CO2 and flows into an electrodialysis bipolar membrane (EDBM). Clever.

THE MAGIC

Proven EDBM technology is typically used to desalinate seawater and has modest power requirements. The Carbon-Blade system uses a continuous regeneration of sulfuric acid and sodium hydroxide.

LOW ENERGY REQUIREMENTS

The entire system is run on renewable resources including wind, solar and rechargeable batteries providing constant power for the regeneration step.

LOWER COSTS / LOWER CARBON FOOTPRINT

The Carbon-Blade containers can be placed strategically so that captured carbon is used at the source. This eliminates costly storage and transportation operations.
