Audi announced that it is working with Krajete GmbH to develop a new technology to filter CO2 from the air to reduce CO2 emissions.
The two companies have developed a plant in Linz, Austria that can remove 1,000 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere per year, and are working on other technologies.
The latest example of the development work of the two partners is the new plant in Austria. Here we use an inorganic filter material that can retain a very high molecular weight and is very insensitive to moisture. As a result, pre-drying of the filtered ambient air is not necessary or only required in certain cases. This increases efficiency and reduces costs. Temperature and pressure conditions to absorb CO2 Molecules and their subsequent removal from the adsorption surface are very similar. This significantly shortens the sorbent loading and discharging cycle. i.e. more CO2 It can be removed from the surrounding air in a short time. Filtered air is released to the environment after the adsorption step. captured CO2 It is then available in concentrated form as a raw material for permanent storage or for a wide range of industrial uses.A large plant near Linz, now in operation, can filter 500 tons of CO2 per year. By the end of the year, another module will increase the plant’s capacity to his 1,000 tons. The electricity required to operate the factory is supplied by a solar power generation system on the company premises.
