Introducing The ZAP-C









  • The groundbreaking ZAP (Zero Air Pollution) C   (Carbon Capture Capsule) reactor is an industrially scalable system constructed with precision using height-adjustable containers. 

  • Currently we utilise 100% biofuel from diverse sources, which is combusted in a stationary engine. The heated, non-fossil flue gas produced is blown into the ZAP-C    reactor. This air stream carries a substantial concentration of CO and various other greenhouse gases. ZAP-C   also has the ability to utilise other sources of CO

  • The system can use various mined minerals, mined tailings, and industrial waste aggregates, containing calcium or magnesium, as alkaline feedstock.  These include Serpentine, Olivine, Basalt, Limestone, Basic Oxygen Furnace (BOF) slag, and recycled concrete.

  • Wastewater, e.g. Greywater is sprayed onto the flue gas, air and minerals to catalyse the process. 

  • ZAP-C   significantly accelerates the natural mineral carbonisation process by providing a greater interface time, ensuring CO₂ is in close proximity with the suitable solid alkaline minerals stated above. As the mineral carbonation process occurs, it forms carbonates, effectively sequestering CO₂. These carbonates can also be turned into commercialised products, adding an economic benefit. The reaction not only results in the swift and permanent sequestration of CO₂ but also produces cooler, cleaner air and a valuable alkaline leachate. The system's efficiency is further enhanced by its effective heat energy recovery, which would otherwise be wasted, and its effective use of water resources. The overall outcome is a more sustainable, profitable, and cost-effective CO₂ sequestration method.

  • Our solution integrates with various environmental domains and diverse technologies, including applications aimed at enhancing soil carbon levels, ocean alkalinity, and even Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure and Hydrogen production. We refer to this integrative capability as the 'Decentralised Integrated Process Approach' (DIPA).

1. All-In-One:

ZAP-C   is a novel combination of DAC and mineral carbonisation, directly capturing AND sequestering CO₂. This means we can do it all in one step!



4. Carbon-Negative Electricity Production:

ZAP-C  ’s biofuel combustion generates surplus electricity that is both pollution-free and carbon-negative. With our DIPA initiative, we aim to seamlessly combine this surplus power with wind and solar energy. This integration transforms solar and wind energy from being merely low-carbon to carbon-negative. Moreover, it negates the necessity for electricity storage at fuel pump charging stations for super-fast EV charging, showcasing the adaptability of our technology in diverse scenarios.


7. Help other Carbon Capture technologies:

The ZAP-C  generates a purified and cooler mixture of air and non-fossil flue gas, with some residual CO₂. This CO₂ content is higher than the atmospheric CO₂ content released after ZAP-C  ’s permanent sequestration process, making it available for further use.


This enriched mixture can be provided at positive pressure to serve as feedstock for other CO₂ separation and sequestration processes utilised by various technologies like Direct Air Capture (DAC). By removing the need for fans and the associated electricity consumption required by these processes to draw in air, the ZAP-C   contributes to lowering operational costs for these companies, offering significant support in this regard.

It has the potential to become the standard equipment, replacing equipment used for cleaning and cooling flue gas in large-scale Carbon Capture and Usage Storage (CCUS) processes, leading to significant operational cost savings.




2. Permanently Sequesters CO2 With High Durability:

We accelerate the carbon mineralisation process, which is well-known to permanently sequester CO₂ into stable aggregates for over 10,000 years. To date, ZAP-C   has proven highly successful in sequestering CO₂. It also eliminates the dangers of CO₂ leakage compared to other methods. It also does not require high-pressure storage facilities or large land areas for storage, which can reduce costs and environmental impacts.


3. Reduction of Pollutants

ZAP-C  doesn't just excel at capturing CO₂; it has also demonstrated its significant capability to effectively reduce other greenhouse gases and pollutants, notably Sulphur Dioxide, Nitrogen Dioxide, Dioxins, Formaldehyde and Particulate Matter (PM). 



5. High-Quality Alkaline Leachate for Hydrogen Production:


Through our DIPA, we have established a strategic partnership with the Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) at Swansea University, located in Wales, United Kingdom. ESRI has achieved significant milestones in enabling cost-effective Hydrogen production and the recovery of metals from industrial waste. Our partnership ensures that we supply their ESRI’s technologies with our sustainable, high quality, alkaline solution by-product and carbon-negative electricity.

6. Production of Sustainable Aggregates:

 ZAP-C   produces sustainable aggregates with either hydrophobic surfaces suitable for road and building construction, or hydrophilic surfaces that serve environmental purposes. We have collaborated with several companies to produce these aggregates for sustainable, high-quality and advanced Anti-Slip Road Surfacing Asphalt Mix.


8. Improving Ocean Alkalinity:

ZAP-C   uses treated greywater within its process. The resultant leachate is purer, more alkaline and enriched in calcium and magnesium. One of the integrated uses of our alkaline solution by-product has already been described above. Our technology also therefore has potential for ocean alkalinity enhancement, contributing to the overall improvement of marine ecosystems.

9. Cost-effective and Profitable:

ZAP-C  operates on minimal energy consumption to power the system.

As highlighted, the by-products, including stable aggregates, alkaline leachate, surplus electricity generation and more, are all harnessed for high commercial profitability.
