Welcome to the era of “Direct Air Utilization.” You all know Direct Air
Capture, and you all know Carbon Utilization. In a single step, SpiralWave radically brings down the energy and the costs of transforming the carbon in air and the hydrogen in water into hydrocarbon fuel. Unlike competing DAC and CCUS technologies and traditional reactors relying on vacuums, high temperatures, and pricey catalysts, SpiralWave scales non-thermal plasma at atmospheric pressure indefinitely. Each SpiralWave’s reactor – The Microbeam™ – can mine 1 ton of CO2 from the air each day, combining it with hydrogen from river or lake water, resulting in 250 to 500 kgs of green methanol — every day — all at room temperature and ambient pressure.
SpiralWave carefully fine-tunes the pulse, the frequency, and water microdroplet parameters to bias towards the formation of methanol, as opposed to other hydrocarbon byproducts. This green-methanol is a vital building block for an emerging class of green maritime fuels. To that end, a large global transport, logistics, and energy conglomerate has expressed interest in a large takeoff agreement with SpiralWave.
