ESG Clean Energy Acquires Patent for Carbon Capture Technology

By ESG Clean Energy | March 23, 2022

Through an exclusive licensing agreement, ESG Clean Energy, LLC, developers of net zero carbon footprints and clean energy solutions for distributed power generation, announced today it acquired a new patent (no. 11,286,832) issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for a Bottoming Cycle Power System and its related impact to carbon capture technology. 

This is the latest patent acquired for ESG’s growing portfolio of advanced power generation technologies that make natural-gas fueled power generation maintain high efficiency without losing energy in the carbon capture process. This makes the process of capturing carbon dioxide more economically feasible and more environmentally friendly. 

This new patent covers the invention of an “exhaust-gas-to-exhaust-gas heat exchanger” that efficiently cools – and then reheats – exhaust from a primary power generator so greater energy output can be achieved by a secondary power source with safe ventilation.  Another key aspect of the new patent is the development of a carbon dioxide capture system that utilizes the waste heat of the carbon dioxide pump to heat and regenerate the adsorber that enables the CO2 to be safely contained and packaged. 

“Acquiring this patent greatly expands our ability to better capture carbon – and use it to make something beneficial – whenever natural gas is used to produce electricity,” said Nick Scuderi, president of ESG Clean Energy. “It’s very important progress for a world that’s forced to still depend on fossil fuels while trying to meet new emissions standards. Until the renewable power industry can meet the rising global power demands, this technology addresses that challenge tremendously.” 

ESG is finalizing a 4.2-megawatt power generation plant in Holyoke that will utilize this and other patents.
