Carbon Capture & Utilisation Technology
The Carbon Capture and Utilization Platform is a new and sophisticated technology that would capture carbon emissions from industrial processes, including those associated with the circular economy, and transform them into useful products, such as chemicals, fuels, and building materials.
A step by step process:
The first step in the process is to capture carbon emissions from industrial processes, including those associated with the circular economy. This can be done using a variety of capture technologies, such as absorption, adsorption, or membrane separation.
Once the carbon emissions are captured, they need to be purified to remove any impurities, such as water and nitrogen. This step is critical , as the final product needs to be in high quality and purity.
The purified carbon emissions are then converted into valuable products using advanced materials and catalysts. There are several conversion pathways that can be used, including chemical, electrochemical, and biological processes.
The next step is to separate the valuable products from any remaining impurities or byproducts. This can be done using a variety of separation techniques, such as distillation, crystallization, or membrane separation.

The final step is to utilize the valuable products in a variety of industrial applications. The products could be used to replace traditional fossil fuels in the production of chemicals, fuels, and construction materials. For example, the methanol produced could be used as a feedstock for the production of chemicals, while the ethylene produced could be used as a building block for the production of plastics.
