Applications

  1. CO2 purification


Our materials among other attributes have large surface areas as high as 700 m2/g. This attribute makes for good adsorbents and good catalysts. As a part of the later category we have developed novel oxidation catalyst which do not use precious metals. These catalytic materials operate at temperatures 100°C less than some traditional oxidation catalysts.

In 1997, as a part of his PhD thesis, Michael Zorn, who was working on supercritical extraction systems, developed a catalytic system for CO2 purification. This system produces a quality of CO2 that is 99.99999% pure. Lately, we produced a large-scale version of this device for a major industry.

It should be also noted that this device oxidizes any impurity in the gas stream and therefore could be used in other applications.
