Bold Science for Energy

Room-temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) are unique, non-volatile, tunable solvents that hold great promise to revolutionize many industrial processes. The combination of RTILs and amines for CO2 capture is a powerful, versatile solution previously overlooked by engineers and chemists in the field.

Bold Science Based On Solid Scientific Principles

  • The non-volatile nature and tunable chemistry of ION’s water tolerant organic solvents maximize the CO2 capacity of commodity amines traditionally used for CO2 capture to produce a faster, energy efficient CO2 capture system.
  • Imidazole and ionic liquid-based solvents have many major advantages relative to aqueous-based solvents.  Simply put, CO2 capture in water tolerant organic solvents is faster, cleaner and cheaper
