ENERGO’s technology is based on a disruptive and patented method, combining for the first time the heterogeneous catalysis, known since the 16th century, and the cold plasma type “Dielectric Barrier Discharge” (DBD) mastered since the 1950s, mainly in ozone production.
ENERGO’s technology includes the following innovations:
|the coupling between a cold plasma of very low power and a heterogeneous catalysis fixed bed,|
|the optimization of the catalyst formulation,|
|the reactor design.|
These innovations offer the following advantages over existing conventional catalytic solutions:
|Operation at atmospheric temperature and pressure, —————————————————————|
Compatibility with polluted gases,
10-fold reduction of catalyst volumes,
Applied to methanation reaction for instance, these advantages bring a cost reduction of 40% the production costs (CAPEX + OPEX) compared to current solutions available*.
