The Carbon Capture and Conversion Institute provides access to scale-up facilities and lab space to help clients on the path to commercialization. But the CCCI is much more than infrastructure. We are a unique mix of experienced multi-disciplinary engineers, technology developers, academic researchers, graduate students, and international experts.
Below are a few examples of clients we’ve supported.
Carbon Upcycling chooses CMCRI to accelerate validation and scale-up process
When Carbon Upcycling Technologies needed a partner to help validate and test its carbon capture membrane technology, it turned to CMC Research. We were able to provide the equipment and expertise the company needed to test its technology in a way that simulated real-world conditions. At our carbon capture and conversion test centre, Carbon Upcycling could use real-time results to rapidly respond to and adjust test protocols – reducing costs and saving time.
The result? The company came away with a solid and credible research report with supporting data that proved the viability of its polymer membrane to capture CO2 in real-world conditions. Full story.
Agora Energy works with CMCRI to test and de-risk components of their innovative CO2 redox flow battery
When Agora Energy Technologies Ltd. Agora Energy Technologies Ltd. is an electrochemical engineering company developing a ground-breaking battery technology that directly utilizes captured CO2 from industrial emitters and stores electricity. Their unique metal-free battery technology, namely the CO2 Redox Flow Battery (CRB), enables long-lasting and low-cost storage of renewable energy, while simultaneously utilizing large amounts of CO2. Agora Energy owns the worldwide intellectual property for this battery technology.
The project resulted in a detailed report that provided valuable insights and data about the design and operation of the flow battery cell. Full Story.
CMC Research Institutes completes market evaluation for BC Biocarbon Ltd. to investigate national and international markets for wood vinegar.
BC Biocarbon Ltd. is a company that manufactures biochar, wood vinegar, tars and producer gas from wood wastes. They use bio-refinery technology that is carbon neutral and therefore, there is no net release of CO2 into the atmosphere.
The market investigation conducted for BC Biocarbon meant that CMCRI had to understand the use of wood vinegar, global producers and suppliers, Canadian regulations, market opportunities for wood vinegar, and recommend next steps for BC Biocarbon. This study also helped the company connect with suppliers and industrial users of wood vinegar.
View the case study to learn about the valuable information CMC Research Institutes was able to provide to BC Biocarbon. Full Story.
