Low complexity and environmentally friendly – No toxic additives or absorbents used means significantly lower operating risk and lower maintenance costs over time. This also avoids the logistics and costs of sourcing highly specialised absorbents.
Highly efficient – A remarkably more efficient membrane compared to the current standard, is achieved through the use of specialised coatings, establishing Aqualung as a market leader for carbon capture performance.
Highly favourable energy balance – The Aqualung system saves substantial energy costs compared to other membrane or absorbent-based systems as it requires zero absorbents or associated regeneration energy.
Fully scalable – The modular “Lego technology” can cost-effectively capture carbon even at small scale (<100,000 TPA) and at low CO2 concentration. This unlocks whole new markets, representing 85% of CO2 -emitters.
Highly compact – With down to 5% of the footprint of an absorption column, the Aqualung system can fit into existing plants where space is at a premium, and without major modifications to the exhaust structure or existing plant.
Research partnership – Aqualung is honoured to have NTNU as its R&D partner. We continue to forge new partnerships with other research institutes to remain at the cutting edge of carbon capture technology.
