Our Technology
in a nutshell

Air components

There are three main components in the air, which we consider here: Oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide. Of course there are more, but we simplify the presentation here.

Separation of CO2

Current capture technologies consume a lot of energy because they rely on cleaning combustion gases with chemical solvents. In our case, the molecules are separated from each other with a porous material.

Magic Filter

We use a ultra thin material with small holes in it. The reason of this approach is the fact that the CO2 premeability of a membrane is inversely proportional to the thickness of the selective layer. Therefore, materials with the thickness of only one atom represent an ultimate limit for this concept. This concept is highly relevant to post-combustion carbon capture.

Pure CO2

Nanoporous membranes for post-combustion separation are rapidly appearing as a very promising technology to overcome the energy and cost-related separation problems of solvent-based purification technology. In principle, atom-thin graphene is an ideal material for advanced separation processes.
