Reducing CO2 emissions and costs in the Petrochemicals Industry

Oil and gas contain carbon, and energy is released when it reacts with air. By controlling this reaction it is possible to generate electricity, as well as converting the carbon into a useful product instead of carbon dioxide. We call this clean carbon energy. Conversion to CO2 pollutes the atmosphere, and wastes a valuable resource. Omnagen can provide a way to harness this energy.

There are two main goals for companies in the oil refining and chemical industries – to reduce costs, and to reduce carbon emissions. These sectors are responsible for 10% of global carbon emissions, so there is much to aim for.

Changing or modifying some existing chemical processes to include Omnagen Cells, can transform them into self-sustaining reactions which also generate electricity. Converting from a positive carbon footprint to a negative one, which will also reduce costs. The figure below shows the potential to save a thousand million tonnes of carbon dioxide a year.

industrial emissions

Industrial carbon emissions are high, and are continuing to rise with increasing economic activity. The need to limit climate change means that carbon emissions have to reduce rapidly. US data shows that the gap between actual and target emissions is already huge. Read more...

hybrid efficient vehicles

Diesel engines are more fuel-efficient than petrol/gasoline engines, but their NOx and particulate emissions cause problems, most notably in cities. Hybrid vehicles operating in "electric-mode" produce no pollution, which is good for city use. However, fuel efficiency on longer distances needs improvement. Omnagen has a solution. Read more...
