Based in Cambridge UK, we are developing a novel and potentially profitable means of permanently capturing CO2.

Offers from Cambridge Carbon Capture
Production of bulk hydrogen with zero emissions
Permanent CO2 capture from conversion of methane to hydrogen using steam methane reforming technology.
Natural gas or biogas from anaerobic digestion of waste is passed through a steam methane reformer converting it to a mixture of CO2 and Hydrogen. Our CO2LOC technology then selectively removes the CO2 and permanently captures it as magnesium carbonate leaving pure hydrogen. This technology can be used to produce bulk hydrogen from natural gas or biogas or used to generate hydrogen on demand for refuelling hydrogen powered vehicles.
CO2 capture and mineralisation of CO2 from industrial emissions
CO2 capture from flue gases from industrial processes such as cement and steel manufacturing.
CO2LOC technology selectively removes CO2 from flue gases from numerous industrial processes, particularly steel and cement manufacturing which accounts for a significant proportion of global emissions. The process starts with plentiful magnesium silicate minerals such as olivine, serpentine, talc and can use waste such as asbestos or steel slaggs. These are digested to separate the magnesium from the silica, the silica sold to tyre manufactures to make higher efficiency tyres, metals such as iron, nickel and chromium are recovered, and the magnesium is used to capture the CO2 as magnesium carbonate. The sale of the by-products has the potential of more than offsetting the cost of CO2 capture. Profits of over $200 USD can be made per tonne of CO2 captured. The magnesium carbonate is used to manufacture fire resistant building materials and insulation products offsetting other carbon intensive materials such as gypsum.
