CxC is based on FET's Cx platform technology, which takes Carbon Dioxide Capture a stage further with a diverse ability to convert the gas into usable Hydro-Carbon gas and liquid by-products.
The CxC Process flow diagram shows the main elements of a typical CxC deployment:
The flue gas is captured from the flue stack at a temperature of up to 270C and then cooled to 35C via a bespoke Condensing Economiser (CE) which recovers heat and water.
The output of the CE unit is also the input gas monitoring point.
Stage 1 of the CxC system uses and continually circulates a metal ion solution to act as the gas capture and carrying medium to remove and convert/destroy NOx and SOx.
The remaining CO2 gas then flows to the Stage 2 CxC Wash Column where the gas is captured and separated. It then undergoes an electro chemical/resin process to be converted in to High Grade Hydro-Carbon gas and/or liquid by-products for on-site reuse or sale. The remaining remediated cooled flue gas is emitted from the Wash Column stack which is also the output gas monitoring point.

FET has successfully converted captured CO2 into a commercial grade Hydro Carbon liquid (Formic Acid) using the described process.
