The Power of the Pellet
The power of the Hot Lime CO2 capture system lies in the patented lime pellets. The pellets have very high CO2 capture capacity and act like a sponge. Our patented limestone pellets make the Hot Limes system robust, compact and less costly than competing CO2 capture systems.
During the charge cycle, these pellets absorb up to 30% of their volume in CO2.
During discharge, when hot air is applied to the system, this causes a reaction between the iron and Calcium Carbonate, resulting in the pellets releasing CO2.
