Title: Pi-CO₂ aqueous post-combustion CO₂ capture: Proof of concept through thermodynamic, hydrodynamic, and gas-lift pump modeling

Partnering in Innovation, Inc. (Pi-Innovation) introduces an aqueous post-combustion carbon dioxide (CO₂) capture system (Pi-CO₂) that offers high market value by directly addressing the primary constraints limiting beneficial re-use markets (lowering parasitic energy costs, reducing delivered cost of capture, eliminating the need for special solvents, etc.). A highly experienced team has completed initial design, modeling, manufacturing verification, and financial analysis for commercial market entry. Coupled thermodynamic and thermal-hydraulic mass transfer modeling results fully support proof of concept. Pi-CO₂ has the potential to lower total cost and risk to levels sufficient to stimulate global demand for CO₂ from local industrial sources.
