CO2 and H2O Dissociation Process
NCF solutions are based on a technology successfully developed in Israel by Professor Jacob Karni and his team at the Weizmann Institute of Science and proven in laboratory trials. The technology involves a new method of using very high temperatures for the dissociation of carbon dioxide (CO2) to carbon monoxide (CO) and oxygen (O2). Simultaneously, the same device can dissociate water (H2O) to hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2). The CO, or the mixture of CO and H2 (called syngas), can then be used as gaseous fuel (e.g., in power plants), or converted to liquid fuel (e.g., methanol or other synthetic fuels), which have the potential to be stored, transported, and used in motor vehicles. The oxygen produced in the process can be used in the combustion of the clean fuel, for example, using advanced-combustion methods, such as oxy-fuel combustion in power plants.
