Technology

Capture

Outside air is vacuumed through a molecular sieve to isolate CO2 molecules, increasing CO2 concentration from 0.04% atmospheric to 30%.

Convert

CO2 is reacted with electrolytic hydrogen over a proprietary catalyst to produce CH4 in the Sabatier process.

CO2 + 4H2 CH4 + 2H2O

Inject

CH4 is fed through an RNG interconnection into a natural gas distribution network.

Impact

On Carbon Dioxide Emissions

Use SKYVAC AIR-NG™ to immediately slash CO2 emissions wherever natural gas is used.

Net Carbon Intensity
Kilograms CO2 released per MMBTU
98 kg 0lbs Lignite Coal
53 kg 0lbs Natural Gas
Zero 0lbs AIR-NG

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.
