What can you do, as a part of your industry, to help with the ongoing issue of energy consumption and the production of greenhouse gases? The purchase of offsets does not mean you’ve actually done something to curb or end production. Even implementing the use of renewable energy supplies is not enough.
After all, solar and wind energy are irregular and even sporadic; hardly enough for any industry to count on 100% of the time. Even worse, ” If the renewable sources produce more energy than can be used by the grid, the grid operator needs to limit (i.e. curtail) the amount of renewable energy that is accepted by the grid or else the grid will become unstable. So renewable energy suppliers have to shut down their solar or wind farm, or worse pay someone to take their energy. That raises the net cost of renewable energy.” And all of that is why the membrane electrolyzer technologies of Dioxide Materials™ are so significant to many industries.
Anion Exchange Membrane Electrolyzer Technology’s Benefits
You need energy when you need energy, and though you may yearn for renewable sources, it is not always a viable option. As we saw, even renewable supplies can go to waste. Being able to capture them and use them to convert CO2 waste streams is a remarkable alternative and is precisely what the membrane electrolyzer technologies from Dioxide Materials will do. Completely scalable to any industrial need, they can use up huge amounts of renewable energy supplies at once, and in turn produce energy that can be sent into the grid. However, the technology can also be used to produce fuels and stable chemicals, too.
Syngas and Beyond
When renewable energy is electrochemically combined with water and Co2 it becomes what is known as Syngas. This can then be turned into actual gasoline, and the Dioxide Materials™ system is able to do this at a pace that industry has never yet seen. In minutes, their electrolyzer is able to convert about 60% of the captured renewable energy into a viable feedstock for fuel, reducing carbon emissions and monetizing a waste stream! No matter what industry you operate within, it pays to determine if these membrane technologies are a viable solution for your waste streams. The environment requires attention and effort, and the pure financial capabilities of such energy conversion processes is foolish to ignore.
