Traditional carbon capture systems rely on solid or liquid sorbents which capture CO2 from feed streams and release it at high temperatures. Such processes use vast amounts of energy and are therefore, difficult to scale.
Verdox has designed a fully electric system for carbon capture which operates at ambient conditions that allows for far more efficient capture and release of CO₂ using only electricity, and without the need for heat or water. Join Dr. Sahag Voskian, the inventor of Verdox’s Electro-Swing Adsorption (ESA) carbon capture technology, as he describes the development and deployment of a cutting edge carbon capture technology that is 70% more efficient than current carbon capture technologies in many applications, including direct air capture.
