Carbon Capture & Recycing Industry Overview


Prize Capital’s New Report Profiles 136 Different “Carbon Capture and Recycling” (CCR) Entities.

These new technologies monetize carbon emissions from power plants by using the feedstock to produce valuable goods and materials.

Dubbed “Carbon Capture and Recycling” (CCR), this new industry dispels the notion that CO2 is a liability that needs to be buried – as is the case with carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) – and instead views the gas as a resource to be capitalized upon, using it as a feedstock in the production of valuable products such as fuel, building materials, animal feed, specialty chemicals, and plastics, among other things.

This report is your tool for navigating this new industry!

Prize Capital’s new report takes an initial look at this industry and the innovators within it and guides readers through this emerging industry.  Specifically, it examines:

  1. The rationale for CCR;

  2. Current CCR approaches;

  3. The forces emerging to shape the various approaches.

The report reviews each of the three known CCR approaches:

  1. “Biological”, where a biological organism rapidly absorbs CO2 to produce a product (e.g. algae oil refined to fuel);

  1. “Chemical and catalytic”, where a catalyst breaks or augments the carbon-oxygen bond in CO2, then combines the carbon with other elements to produce a product (e.g. concentrated solar reforms CO2 into carbon monoxide, which then combines with hydrogen to produce synthetic diesel fuel);

  1. “Mineralization”, where through the use of feldspars and carbonization, CO2 is locked into solid structures that can then be incorporated into products (e.g. CO2 is reduced via anorthite to produce aluminum oxide, which is then sold to the advanced ceramic and chemical processing industries).

In addition to providing context, the report serves as a guide and reference tool by focusing the majority of its content on:

Snapshots of 136 different entities working on various CCR approaches

37 biological

63 chemical and catalytic

23 mineralization

1 blended

and 12 uncategorized entities

Specifically, the report strives to:

  1. Identify and profile each entity;

  2. Provide a summary and synopsis that includes each entity’s respective stage of development;

  3. Present entities’ level of funding to date;

  4. Discuss any of the entities’ known partnerships and demonstrations;

  5. Provide website links, emails, and phone numbers for readers to directly follow-up with entity decision-makers.

When possible, the report provides information on each entity’s:

  1. Energy efficiency (MWh/ton of converted CO2);

  2. Conversion metric (Ton of CO2 ⇒ ? quantity of product);

  3. Land Footprint (Tons/acre of capacity);

  4. Water Footprint (Gal/ton of CO2 recycled);

  5. Ability to use raw flue gas (i.e. ~12% CO2) instead of pure CO2.

In addition to 136 CCR entities, the report recognizes the attention that the biological category has received in recent years by not only profiling the 37 biological entities that are either applying or have applied their technologies to the utilization of power plant flue gas, but also providing names, descriptions, and contact information of:

An additional 260 biological companies, universities, and laboratories

in an appendix that have the potential to utilize flue gas
but aren’t known to explicitly do so at this time

This new Emerging Carbon Capture Technologies report focuses its examination on “post-combustion” carbon capture technologies, given that this existing power generation infrastructure is where CCR technologies are most applicable.  The report is an aggregation of partial information, data, and developments in the field of carbon capture, with a particular eye towards the targets of recent government funding, given that the government has been by far the industry’s largest funding source.

The new report profiles breakthrough technologies that have been targeted in the areas of:

  1. Solvents

  2. Enzyme based systems

  3. Physical sorbents

  4. Precipitated calcium carbonate

  5. Ionic liquids

  6. Gas separation membranes

  7. Metal organic frameworks (MOFs).
