WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass., October 03, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Through an exclusive licensing agreement, ESG Clean Energy, LLC, developers of zero-carbon distributed power generation systems, announced today it acquired an extended patent (no. 11,415,052) issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for a new heat exchanger technology designed to significantly increases the power output of its carbon capture technology.
This patent covers the unique methods utilized in a previous apparatus patent acquired last March. It is the latest patent acquired by ESG for its growing portfolio of advanced power generation technologies that make natural gas-fueled power generation maintain high efficiency without losing energy in the carbon capture process. This makes the process of capturing carbon dioxide more economically feasible and more environmentally friendly.
The core innovation of this patent is an "exhaust-gas-to-exhaust-gas heat exchanger" that efficiently cools – and then reheats – exhaust from a primary power generator so greater energy output can be achieved with safe ventilation. Further, this invention enables the carbon dioxide to be more safely captured, contained, and packaged for commercial or other use.
"Acquiring this extended patent not only makes the power generation system more efficient, but it ultimately makes the process of capturing CO2 easier," said Nick Scuderi, president of ESG Clean Energy. "We’re excited to take this new technology and incorporate it into our clean energy system."
ESG currently has a number of projects in various stages of development that will utilize this and other patents to improve its power generation and carbon capture capabilities.
