the problem

Thermal industrial processes like power plants, Blue Hydrogen production from steam-methane reformers (SMR’s), Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) as well as steel mills, and cement plants generate CO2 that needs to be captured from the flue gases leaving these processes. In addition to these industrial sources, CCR’s has a solution for any associated CO2 removal from solvent-based Direct Air Capture (DAC) facilities.

In addition to the CO2, other contaminants are present that make capture of carbon dioxide a unique challenge for each scrubbing application. These contaminants can include excess oxygen, sulfur compounds, nitrogen oxides and fly ash along with high temperatures that impact the capture technology design.

The most common regenerable method to capture this post combustion carbon dioxide, often referred to anthropogenic CO2, utilizes a variety of single amines, blends of amines and amines with inhibitors to contact and scrub the flue gases before final release to the atmosphere.

These contaminants and required operating conditions negatively impact the amines used causing them to degrade, forming amine fragments, secondary organic degradation reaction products, organic acids, - commonly referred to as Heat Stable Salts (HSS), along with heavy polymeric materials.

the Solution

CCR owns novel Intellectual Property that can be integrated with any carbon capture system and with proper design can maintain the integrity of these solvents for extended life and optimized use in the CCUS system.

The significant advantage that CCR’s patented and proprietary vacuum distillation technology brings is its capability to remove all of these contaminants mentioned and not just the HSS components.


CCR offers customers onsite reclaiming services through a fleet of self-contained reclaiming units.
