Our patented technology is called Direct Carbon Immobilization or DCI™.
DCI™ is a thermochemical separation technology which is designed to process mixed waste and biomass to produce syngas and cleaned solids.
DCI™ is gasification, a process which is in operation for over 100 years like in coke making, of solid waste in a relatively slow and stable process. The slow vertical speed within the reactor limits mechanical abrasion and guarantees complete conversion of hydro carbons in gas and solid carbon.
The gas is heated up further to ensure decomposition of complex hydrocarbons like PAH’s, dioxins and PFAS and results in the production of syngas.
Agglomeration of the solids is little to none due to avoiding melting temperatures of slags.
All this is done in the same reactor.
To convey the maturity our innovation we refer to the Technology Readiness Level system, which has steps 1 to 9.
TRL 1 and 2 were covered by our literature study and patent.
TRL 3 was covered during laboratory testing.
TRL4 & 5 will be reached in our Lab Scale Reactor for DCI™ with a capacity of 5-15 kg/d.
TRL 6 & 7 will be reached in our pilot plant which will have a capacity of 100-150 kg/h and is 24/7 operations ready.
TRL 8 at our launching customer
TRL 9, let’s see
This is where we will post updates as we continue our journey.
The report about TRL 3 is ready and has been distributed to it’s sponsors.
Our minimal viable product, it wasn’t for sale though….
For TRL4, we are building our LSR and commissioning is scheduled for Q1 2023.
We intend to reach TRL 5 during Q2 2023.
