Many companies are trying to reduce their carbon footprint. To do that means investing in the right components and systems, and this is an exciting time for such an endeavor. Technologies have advanced to the point that CO2 emissions can be converted into a valuable feed stock, and the availability of premium carbon dioxide electrolyzers and components has paved a new path for ways to monetize what would otherwise be a waste gas.
These are becoming more familiar across the board, but many still rely on energy supplies and heavy metals to achieve their goals. Rather than continuing in this cycle, you can find carbon dioxide electrolyzers and components for sale that effectively use solar or wind energy to convert trapped CO2 emissions into fuels and high-value chemicals.
As documented in several studies, research teams have “previously found electrolytic CO2 reduction uneconomical because the selectivity and energy efficiency of the process were modest”. Yet, Dioxide Materials has perfected their approach to this process and makes carbon dioxide electrolyzers and components for sale that decrease the CO2 reduction barrier and increase CO selectivity. The result is energy efficiency of more than 80% and CO2 conversion at nearly 99%.
The firm has also ensured that their carbon dioxide electrolyzers and components for sale are utterly unique thanks to their proprietary anionic electrolyte membrane in their electrolyzers. These novel imidazole functionalized membranes with a polystyrene backbonearepolymer membranes are surprising stable in strong alkaline solutions and far superior to other membranes in the market. The advantage of this patented membrane is that it has a demonstrable lack of volumetric size change and features membrane electrode assembly construction capabilities.
Known as Sustainion®, these anion exchange membranes have the highest conductivity and lowest ASR of any alkaline exchange membranes available commercially. They are able to avoid the corrosion that is such a common problem with ionic liquids in CO electrolyzers, essentially dissolving seals and other components. The Dioxide Materials’ design eliminates this problem and raises the lifetime of the CO2 electrolyzer into a range that has far reaching commercial applications. These membranes have demonstrated potential lifetimes of thousands of hours in electrolyzers at high current densities as well as stability in 1M KOH and conductivity above 100mS/cm in alkaline conditions.
When looking for CO electrolyzers and components for sale, going for the greenest option is possible with the advanced technologies of Dioxide Materials.
