DOE National Labs
The Company views the DOE and its Regional Partnerships as critical to its success of Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS) technologies and has developed a close working relationship with a number of them.
Pacific Northwest National
Labratory - PNNL has been developing a high temperature clathrate
material with the intent to apply it to a form of high temperature pressure
swing and/or temperature swing adsorption systems for the purpose of separating
CO2 from the flue gas at temperature. Ramgen has participated in several
trade studies that optimize the proposed PNNL system with the unique capabilities
of the Ramgen shock compression technology.
Albany Research Labs – ARL has been active in Integrating Oxy-Fuel Combustion with the removal of all pollutants in its Oxy-IPR technology being developed with Jupiter Oxygen.
The basis of the process is the separation of condensable vapors such
as water and CO2, from the non-condensable gases such as O2
and N2, using compression and cooling. In the process, pollutants
such as SOx, NOx, and particulates are removed with the condensate streams.
Ramgen has been working closely with ARL to model the use of its shock
compression technology and corresponding heat recovery potential. The
system is applicable to the retrofit of the existing coal-fired power
