News release from ESTECH
Svendborg, 19 August 2022
We are pleased to announce that ESTECH’s carbon capture process with electrolytic regeneration has been granted a European patent. The technology is unique in its approach to carbon capture, as it merges two operations in one combined process.
The ESTECH system provides cost-efficient capturing of CO₂, as well as a sustainable integration of Power-to-X between CO₂ capture and hydrogen production – solely based on green electrical power, with no thermal heat requirement.
To ensure reduced CO2 emissions, Power-to-X must be produced using energy from additional green power plants, because if it is not, its carbon footprint would be even larger than that of fossil fuels.
ESTECH’s combined carbon capture and hydrogen production is an environment-and-climate-friendly energy source that reduces emissions and transform harmful compounds into valuable products. It consumes less energy than other known power plant designs – that typically focus on either CO2 capture or hydrogen production – as the green energy consumed by the ESTECH pilot plant is attributing to the production of hydrogen.
This innovative technology is therefore a potential key to combat climate change in the future.
