Reduction of operating costs
No regenerative chemicals
High reduction in solvent degradation

The goal of using MEGA electrodialysis for CO2 capture is to integrate it with other separation processes such as absorption and desorption to increase CO2 capture and release efficiency. The use of electrodialysis in the solvent recovery process significantly reduces the costs associated with the need for fresh solution replacement and disposal.

MEGA Electrodialysis applications for CO2 capture technology

Electrodialysis is a suitable technology for carbon capture

Electrodialysis as a suitable technology for carbon capture

Electrodialysis technology for CO2 capture depends on various factors such as technical feasibility, economic viability, environmental impact, and social acceptability. Considering these criteria, electrodialysis has proven to be a suitable technology for regenerating absorbents when these chemical media are already depleted of CO2 and need to be cleaned of impurities for reuse.

MEGA advanced electrodialysis is an efficient technology that uses electricity to dissociate water into acid and base to regenerate bicarbonate-based CO2 capture solutions. It can be used in chemical processing loops of carbon capture plants.

The main advantage of MEGA electrodialysis for CO<sub>2</sub> capture processes

The main advantage of MEGA electrodialysis for CO2 capture processes

MEGA electrodialysis effectively reduces the amount of impurities in the chemical media (absorbents) that otherwise limit absorption efficiency and increase the consumption of absorbent solution.

The efficient management of the waste fractions (chemical media - absorbents) obtained from CO2 capture results in reduced OPEX with minimal environmental impact (no need for regeneration chemicals).

Direct Air Capture CO<sub>2</sub>

Direct Air Capture CO2

Today's Direct Air Capture (DAC) technology of CO2 from the air is based on the contact of ambient air with chemical media such as alkaline solvents or absorbents like KOH or NaOH.

Our unique bipolar electrodialysis (EDBM) technology was developed for companies dealing with the Direct Air Capture of CO2 from the air, specifically for the purification of absorbents, e.g. (KHCO3). No regeneration chemicals are needed. By using MEGA's EDBM, you influence the energy and environmental impact of the entire process.

Flue gas carbon capture

Flue gas carbon capture

Capturing CO2 from power plants and industrial petrochemical sources that account for a large share of global emissions.

Carbon capture in flue gas, i.e. capturing CO2 from stationary sources such as power plants, heating plants, or industrial plants producing cement, steel, and chemicals, is the most common technology among current carbon capture projects.

Liquid is used to chemically remove CO2 before it leaves the stack, with aqueous amine scrubbing being the most mature and commercially available technology.

Using electrodialysis to purify an absorbent solution is approximately 2-3 times cheaper compared to replacing it with a new one.

The use of MEGA electrodialysis provides a more efficient technology for cleaning the absorbents of heat stable salts (HSS), which are the main degradation products remaining in the sorbents after the removal of the captured CO2 from specific gas mixtures.

Direct ocean carbon capture

Direct ocean carbon capture

Direct Removal of Carbon Dioxide from Oceanwater.

The use of MEGA bipolar electrodialysis on the softened seawater allows hydrochloric acid and caustic solution mixture production. The acid-salty mixture can be used for CO2 libration from raw seawater. The produced salty caustic can be used for later pH correction, allowing the next CO2 absorption cycle between air and ocean.
