CO2 capture & efficient heat recovery from exhaust air
Our work on developing fuel cells has enabled Hydrocell to develop unique and practical solutions for the direct air capture (DAC) of carbon dioxide (CO2) and efficient heat recovery from exhaust air.
You’re probably aware that we humans and our planet now have a serious CO2 problem. Even though humans – like all animals – breathe out carbon dioxide and plant life needs it to photosynthesize and grow, the amount of CO2 in our atmosphere is already at elevated levels and is steadily increasing.
More than twenty-five years ago, in 1993, Hydrocell began developing fuel cell technology. Two fully-developed innovations were the result. The first, direct air capture (DAC) of CO2 from ambient air, is a technology much discussed but one that has not yet been implemented to any significant degree, even though it offers humanity “something we can actually do, right now” to reduce levels of CO2. Hydrocell’s second innovation – efficient, minimal-maintenance heat recovery using unique brush-type heat exchangers – is also available right now. As well as offering users remarkable cost savings, the fuel savings that HCell heat exchangers make possible enable significant reductions in CO2 emissions.
