How big is the CO2 problem?

  • EIA (International Energy Outlook) 2021 predicts global energy-related CO2 emissions to be around 42.8 bn tonnes by 2050 – a 22% increase over 2018 levels.
  • Inadequate action taken so far (Paris Climate Agreement, Glasgow World Climate Conference, etc.).

(*) Energy-related emissions are the emissions of greenhouse gases and atmospheric pollutants resulting from the conversion of energy sources into, for example, electricity and heat.

In a global comparison, China recently recorded the highest energy-related CO₂ emissions, followed by the USA and the European Union as a whole.

What are the effects of excess CO2 emissions?

  • Rising costs for households, industry and the economy (including carbon levies and taxes).
  • Threat to our society from environmental pollution and its consequences.
    – Warming of the atmosphere and oceans
    – Increasing concentration of greenhouse gases
  • As a possible consequence of climate change, ecological effects, such as more extreme weather phenomena, can already be observed today.
  • Innovations in the field of environmentally relevant technologies that significantly reduce environmental pollution, environmental risks and resource consumption are now urgently needed.

Idea

Economical and sustainable utilisation of CO2 through the TEGC-R/CO2 DECAT process.

Result:
  • Zero CO2 emissions
  • Creation of new energy sources / products as solids, liquids or gases
  • Closed CO2 cycle for fossil fuels

Process

The technology can be connected to any biogas plant and absorbs all the carbon from the CO2 emissions from the aerobic and anaerobic biogas processes. The carbon is then further processed into new energy sources. From 1 tonne of CO2, depending on the requirement profile, we extract
  • up to 270 kg carbon/ carbon fibre/ solid fuel
  • up to 240 ltr methanol/ ethanol
  • up to 230 m³ synthesis gas

Vision

  • Important and sustainable contribution to climate and environmental protection
  • Avoidance of CO2 or CO2 levies and taxes
  • Saving resources
  • Optimal use of CO2 as a raw material for energy sources / products
  • Provision of new sources of energy and added value

Advantages

  • Effective and efficient
  • Modular systems
  • High economic efficiency
  • High cleaning efficiency / high prevention power

Technology

The functional principle of the TEGC-R CO2 DECAT process is shown coupled to the exhaust gasses of a gas engine. Microwave irradiation destabilises the CO2 molecules from the exhaust gases. The carbon is absorbed by a proprietary mix of operating materials including catalysts and discharged from the system.
