Holcim and Cool Planet Technologies to Develop Carbon Capture Plant in Germany.

As governments, scientists, environmental bodies and the public seek to control global warming, pressure is building on industry to reduce its environmental impact and specifically its Carbon Dioxide emissions. The challenge is to do this cost effectively with the minimum impact on competitiveness in a global market.

Cool Planet Technologies was founded to commercialise emerging technologies that can be employed to protect and enhance the environment. We are currently working on technologies for the capture of carbon dioxide and the employment of planet friendly sustainable energy.

Our expertise is the rapid assessment development and global deployment of technologies on an industrial scale.

About Us

Technology and Sustainability

Our aim is to identify, develop and deploy new technologies to provide industry with a range of options to reduce their environmentally damaging emissions. We aim to do this quickly, efficiently and in a commercially competitive way.

We think outside the box in our search for novel ways of using existing and emerging technologies and we are working with world class universities and research institutions to commercialise their discoveries and scientific developments.

We are working with established industries to capture their emissions using exciting new technologies and tailoring the technology to particular applications.

We are working with the cement industry to look at efficient and compact retrofit solutions to capture carbon emission. We are also working with power generators to reduce their carbon emissions from fossil fuels. While there is an increase in the reliance on renewable energy sources, the generation of energy from fossil fuels will continue to play a key role in the diversity of energy supply for years to come. Thus, we have a role in protecting the environment, the security of electricity supply and those employed in other industries.

Carbon Dioxide Capture

Efficient Carbon Capture Technology

We are currently working on the development of a capture process for the removal of carbon dioxide from industrial flue gas streams.  The technology has been developed by a world class renowned research institute after substantial research and development, representing a departure from the currently preferred technologies, reducing costs by a substantial factor and improving the ease of use, making it a low risk, cost effective technology.

In comparison with competing technologies, the process is compact, uses significantly less energy and can be installed and operated at a lower cost giving it a substantial commercial advantage.  It can be retrofitted to existing plants or installed as part of a new-build.

We have a license agreement for the use of the technology and are working with its developers to commercialise the technology, which has already been tested in a small pilot project.

We are in discussions with industry partners in the cement industry about upscaling the technology to a full scale plant capable of removing in excess of 500,000 tonnes per year of carbon dioxide from a flue gas stream.

We expect to have a full scale plant installed in the next 5 years and we are planning  a manufacturing facility to facilitate the rapid deployment of the technology to global industrial applications.

Carbon Dioxide Applications

Cool Planet Technologies are working with several research institutions across Europe to further develop and commercialise emerging technologies that utilise carbon dioxide.

These include, among other things, the production of biofuels for aircraft and heavy vehicles, the production in scale of high protein fish feed for use in commercial fish farms and the production of additives the will reduce the amount of cement required in any civil construction.

The Cool Planet Technologies team has in depth experience of oil and gas reservoirs which can be used to store carbon dioxide on a longterm basis, protecting the environment for generations.
