CARBON BLADE TECHNOLOGY
Distributed Direct Air Capture (DAC) Solution
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.
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.
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.
