The University of North Dakota is actively seeking companies to commercialize a new technology that captures carbon dioxide (CO2) from emission and converts it into a useful polymer. This polymer can be used to produce fiber or film. It can also be used for compression molding.
-More energy and cost effective than traditional capture methods. -Generates profit not only through the production of polymers but also through the elimination of CO2 waste. -Does not require purification of the flue gas stream. -Does not require any catalysts or solvents. -Allows for the removal of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides in gas streams.
