CarbonSaver Technology from Atlantic Hydrogen Tests Carbon Removal
CarbonSaver technology involves subjecting natural gas to an electrical charge, causing the carbon and the hydrogen molecules to split. The hydrogen is then mixed back with natural gas to produce HENG with around 20% hydrogen, reducing CO2 emissions when it is burned, while the carbon is removed as a solid.
The CarbonSaver Demonstration Project, which will be located in Fredericton, New Brunswick, is expected to take three years to complete, starting in the summer of 2008. It will involve building a plant capable of generating HENG at volumes greater than 1,000 cubic metres per hour and at pressures between 50 and 150 psi.
