CALGARY, AB, Could 3, 2021 /CNW/ – Benefit Oil & Fuel Ltd (“Benefit”) is happy to announce that its subsidiary Entropy Inc. (“Entropy” or the “Company”) has signed a Know-how Improvement and Funding Settlement (the “Settlement”) with the College of Regina’s Clear Power Applied sciences Analysis Institute (“CETRI”), which secures unique possession of a brand new technology of carbon seize solvents.
Highlights of the Settlement embody:
- Entropy has secured unique rights to a novel solvent designed particularly for Entropy’s post-combustion carbon seize and storage (“CCS”) techniques. This solvent know-how is the product of over 25 years of analysis, and gives giant cyclic capability, excessive stability, and low operational points. CETRI check outcomes to this point present a step-change discount in vitality necessities and circulation charges in comparison with all solvents which can be presently out there.
- Engineering professors Dr. Raphael Idem (founding director of CETRI and SaskPower Clear Power Analysis Chair), and Dr. Paitoon Tontiwachwuthikul (co-founder of CETRI) will act as advisors to Entropy. Dr. Idem and Dr. Tontiwachwuthikul are worldwide consultants and pioneers within the subject of post-combustion carbon seize. Dr. Tontiwachwuthikul’s work has been cited over 12,500 instances and Dr. Idem’s analysis has been captured in over 200 publications. For greater than 20 years, their analysis has been basic to advancing solvent-based CO2 seize processes globally and has been built-in into carbon seize services in Norway, Canada, USA, Thailand, China, and the Netherlands.
By establishing the Settlement with CETRI, Entropy has secured entry to state-of-the-art tools and deep expertise in post-combustion carbon seize, which has been vital in serving to drive the price of CCS all the way down to the purpose the place it’s industrial under $50/tonne. Entropy is looking for patents on a number of new applied sciences required to scale back the price of capturing carbon and storage, together with the brand new solvent class. Entropy’s CCS know-how was developed collectively by Benefit and Allardyce Bower Consulting Inc. (“ABC”) and is relevant to most point-source industrial emissions, together with sectors which can be troublesome to decarbonize like energy technology, blue hydrogen, LNG, oil and fuel processing, and manufacturing of cement and metal.
CETRI is certainly one of just a few services on the planet with full functionality of creating and testing CCS solvent know-how. CETRI researchers started creating post-combustion carbon seize know-how virtually 30 years in the past for an enhanced oil restoration venture at Weyburn, Saskatchewan, which is now the most important present carbon seize venture on the planet. CETRI is situated within the College’s Greenhouse Fuel Applied sciences Heart, which homes the next know-how and experimental services:
- A number of versatile carbon seize modules together with bench scale, pilot scale and demonstration scale
- Flue fuel synthesis to simulate varied emissions chemistries and circumstances
- Specialty solvent improvement and testing laboratory together with the complete spectrum evaluation of all facets of amine efficiency, together with degradation of amines, emissions from amine solvents, foaming conduct, and corrosivity
- Mass switch research and testing of a wide range of superior random and structured column packings
- Full catalyst synthesis, characterization, and testing laboratory
- Small-scale catalytic reactors (with H2S and SO2 testing capabilities)
- Specialty solvent synthesis and testing laboratory
- Ground scale catalyst aided carbon seize rigs
- Along with CCS analysis and improvement, the CETRI analysis workforce are advancing zero-emission hydrogen (H2) applied sciences and waste-to-renewable fuels and chemical substances
“The College of Regina is worked up to embark on this collaboration with Entropy, creating and advancing a high-performance solvent for Entropy’s carbon seize and storage system,” commented Dr. Hussameldin Ibrahim, Director of CETRI.
Since saying the founding of Entropy (see Benefit press release of March 31, 2021), Entropy has been engaged by quite a few third events to guage and design MCCS initiatives in a number of industrial sectors. The Company seems ahead to offering updates on these initiatives as they progress, independently from Benefit company updates.
