Unlocking industrial decarbonization at the gigaton scale

600 Gt CO2
will be emitted by 2070 by existing plants that aren't decommissioned or decarbonized.1
Industry needs carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) to decarbonize existing plants and processes that are underserved by other decarbonization pathways.
Today, carbon capture accounts for over 50% of the cost of CCUS. Ardent is reducing the cost of capture to unlock industrial CCUS at scale.2
Ardent’s membrane technology uses 40% less energy than traditional solvent-based capture processes, reducing the cost of capture and making carbon capture practical for more applications.
Up to 15% of total global energy use goes to separating and purifying chemicals. Ardent’s technology makes tough chemical separations not only possible, but more energy efficient, reducing energy use and related emissions.3
