Optiperm Carbon

Reduce emissions with a modular, low-energy, and cost-effective point-source carbon capture solution.
Optiperm™ Carbon Membrane

Decarbonize existing facilities with next-gen separation

Rather than relying on pressure or temperature to accomplish separation, Ardent’s cutting edge Facilitated Transport Membranes harness the chemistry of the membrane itself, significantly reducing the need for compression or large balance of plant. The result is a low energy, fully-electrified, and easy to use solution that is cost-effective and practical for many applications, including those underserved by incumbent technologies.
Over half the cost in carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) is the capture process itself. Lowering capture costs is the linchpin to unlock industrial decarbonization at scale.

Proof Points

How Optiperm™ Carbon works
Optiperm™ Carbon captures greenhouse gas emissions by passing flue gas streams through facilitated transport membranes that separate out the CO2 from the other gasses in the stream.
