    Abstract:

    High-Pressure, Density-driven Separation (HDS) technology was invented and reduced to practice at the University of Missouri. Research, development and commercialization activities continue at Mizzou in conjunction with Liquid Carbonic LLC. HDS technology has the potential to be a powerful weapon against climate change. Based on experimentation, thermodynamic analyses, and modeling, our estimated operating cost is about $15 per metric ton of CO2 removed, which is less than one-third current state-of-the-art technologies. We have defined a volumetric efficiency metric that, at the time of abstract submittal, had increased nearly 300-fold relative to our original (published) experiments. The HDS itself has no moving parts and, for a given separation rate, its dimension continues to shrink as we optimize performance. Therefore, capital costs will also be low. We will also report on applications of HDS technology for upgrading fuel gasses containing CO2, as well as for H2 separations, all without membranes.
