FACTS ABOUT CO2
Nearly 70% of all the energy produced in the United States comes from fossil fuels, and that figure is expected to stabilize or rise over the next 25 years—not decline.
If we do not reduce the build up of CO2 in the atmosphere, catastrophic changes will dramatically affect our planet.
Capturing CO2 from industrial power plants that burn fossil fuels can reduce CO2 emissions from those plants by as much as 90%.
The IEA has said that capturing carbon is the only technology today that would allow industrial sectors, including steel, iron, cement, and natural gas processing, to meet steep global emissions reduction goals.
ION Engineering is leading the world in developing a suite of carbon capture technologies to facilitate the cleanest, most environmentally friendly, cost-effective bridge to a zero-carbon future.
What ION Does
ION provides an evaluation of our technology through costing studies for potential customers to gauge the necessary steps for capturing emissions.
We are the solvent engineering experts on our technology. ION works with clients to design future carbon capture plant facilities to best fit their needs.
We’ve created an industry-leading post-combustion solvent to efficiently capture CO2 emissions. ION’s clients build their capture facilities and ION will provide solvent expertise and maintenance to help the facility capture carbon emissions.
Path to Commercialization
Level I – ION completed testing at the National Carbon Capture Center (NCCC) in Alabama testing their liquid absorbent technology on coal-fired flue gas at the ~0.6 MWe (Megawatt Electric) scale in 2015.
Level II – Beginning in 2016, ION will scale-up to 12 MWe through a test campaign conducted at the Technology Centre Mongstad located in Norway.
Level III – The ultimate goal is maintaining plant facilities operating at an annual flue gas treatment rate at 50 MWe or higher.
