Cryogenic Compressed Air to store Energy

higher efficiency, higher mobility


Our proprietary thermochemical process uses Temperature Swing Adsorption and direct-contact heat exchange to liquify and cryogenically store air discharged by a single-stage compressor.

When the system needs energy, the process vaporizes the liquid air before passing through a turbo-expander to generate electricity.

Our process works more efficiently by operating in a more favorable thermodynamic range.
