Many legacy industries present large challenges to decarbonize, and at the same time are needed to fulfill global energy demands in the short term. These include natural-gas and wood fired burners and gas-fired power plants. Existing carbon-capture media, such as amine-based sorbents, face challenges to effectively sequester carbon dioxide emitted from these heavy industrial uses. Mitico offers state-of-the-art services and equipment to capture carbon dioxide (CO2). Their patent-pending granulated metal carbonate sorption technology (GMC), developed at Caltech, captures over 95% of the CO2 emitted from post-combustion point sources (flue gases), including gas-fired power plants and boilers, and waste-to-energy and biomass-to-energy facilities. They enable carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) as a service at a low cost, reachig prices below $50/ton. The Mitico technology is based on using abundant, cost-effective, and low-impact GMC sorbents. The GMC solid can be rejuvenated through moderate temperature- and pressure-driven swing sorption-desorption cycles. The extracted and purified (99.9%) CO2 can be sequestered or used as a feedstock for green chemistry. The Mitico process is scalable, applicable to small (1K CO2 tonne/year) natural-gas and wood fired burners all the way to large (>100K CO2 tonne /year) gas-fired power plants and hard-to-decarbonize industries.
