Schematic of the solar reactor configuration for the two-step solar-driven thermochemical production of fuels. It consists of a cavity-receiver containing a porous monolithic ceria cylinder. Concentrated solar radiation enters through a windowed aperture and impinges on the ceria inner walls. Reacting gases flow radially across the porous ceria, while product gases exit the cavity through an axial outlet port. Red arrow indicates ceria reduction (oxygen evolution); blue arrow indicates oxidation (fuel production).

Our technology does this in a closed loop where the only major inputs are water and energy, and the output is a stream of pure, compressed CO2 ready for use or storage. Our system runs on a flexible combination of natural gas or clean electricity. CO2 produced from any natural gas use is captured and delivered along with our atmospheric CO2, so that new emissions are not incurred.

Our air capture system pairs a wet scrubbing air contactor with a chemical regeneration cycle, and combines equipment with deep industrial precedent with our own novel and proprietary innovations. All of this results in a technology that has low scale-up risk, and powerful economies of scale.

Air to fuels uses renewable electricity to produce hydrogen from water, and then combines the hydrogen with captured atmospheric CO₂ to produce hydrocarbon fuels such as diesel, gasoline, and Jet-A. Air to fuels gives us a way to produce global scale quantities of fuels that are compatible with today’s transportation infrastructure and engines, but add little or no fossil carbon emissions to the atmosphere.
