ESG Clean Energy Gets Patent for Carbon Capture Technology and Advanced Bottoming Cycle Power Generation
ESG Clean Energy, specializing in developing renewable energy for distributed power generation, announced it acquired a new patent for a bottoming Cycle Power System and carbon capture technology.
This is the latest patent added to ESG's increasing portfolio of advanced power-generating technologies that allow natural-gas-fueled power plants to operate at high efficiency while capturing carbon emissions without wasting energy. As a result, capturing carbon dioxide becomes more cost-effective and ecologically benign.
This new patent covers the development of an "exhaust-gas-to-exhaust-gas heat exchanger" that efficiently cools – and then reheats – exhaust from a primary power generator, allowing a secondary power source to produce more energy while maintaining safe ventilation. Another feature of the new invention is the creation of a carbon dioxide capture system that uses the waste heat from the CO2 pump to heat and renew the adsorber, allowing CO2 to be securely contained and packaged.
Nick Scuderi, president of ESG Clean Energy, said: "Acquiring this patent expands our ability to capture carbon – and use it to make something beneficial – whenever natural gas is used to produce electricity. It’s very important progress for a world that still depends on fossil fuels while trying to meet new emissions standards. Until the renewable power industry can meet the rising global power demands, this technology addresses that challenge tremendously.”
