Outside air is vacuumed through a molecular sieve to isolate CO2 molecules, increasing CO2 concentration from 0.04% atmospheric to 30%.
A solar-powered device that produces renewable natural gas (RNG) from CO2 and moisture in air.

CO2 is reacted with electrolytic hydrogen over a proprietary catalyst to produce CH4 in the Sabatier process.
CH4 is fed through an RNG “interconnection” into a natural gas distribution network.
On Carbon Dioxide Emissions
Use SKYVAC AIR-NG™ to immediately slash CO2 emissions wherever natural gas is used.
Burning 19 MMBTU of AIR-NG in the place of fossil natural gas eliminates 1 metric ton of CO2 emissions.
A single SKYVAC unit provides the energy demand of 14 gas-heated homes in the U.S. northeast region.
On Methane Emissions
Leakage of unburned “fugitive methane” from natural gas infrastructure is believed to be responsible for around 3% of all global heating.
Over 75% of methane leakage occurs upstream, from drilling operations and long-distance transmission pipelines.
SKYVAC produces and injects renewable natural gas downstream—as close to end users as possible—achieving methane emission intensity lower than any fossil natural gas in the market.
