Carbon Sequestration Module

Blue Planet’s carbon capture and mineralization technology is deployed in modular units at coal-fired and natural gas-fired power plants, and cement plants. Blue Planet’s containerized units can be rapidly manufactured off-site and rapidly permitted and deployed. The containers can be ‘numbered up’ in serial fashion, expanding capacity incrementally. This will minimize permit delays, host-site disruption and construction planning costs. Each Blue Planet’s module captures approximately 9,000 tons of CO2 per year. Blue Planet converts the carbon dioxide to bicarbonate solutions which is used to precipitate carbonate minerals (approximately 21,000 tons per year) and permanently sequestered in green building materials. Blue Planet can sequester carbon dioxide in the form of sand, gravel, reflective minerals, and cement supplements, which are the key ingredients of concrete, roofing shingles, pavement sections, and many other products used globally at massive scales.

Air Pollution Control License

Blue Planet’s carbon capture and mineralization technology offers CO2 capture as an emissions control service to address existing and future CO2 cap-and-trade programs at state, federal and international levels. In the US, the service of capturing the CO2 and other lesser-regulated criteria pollutants from the emitters, such as power or cement plants, will enable plant compliance with EPA air quality regulations. Similar legislation is developing worldwide as awareness of the economic impacts of climate change is becoming clear to world leaders. An international agreement including the United States and China is expected to result from the climate change meetings in Paris this December. Potential sites include electricity generating stations powered by coal or natural gas, cement plants, petroleum and/or biofuel refineries. This license fee is based on the amount of CO2 sequestered.

End Product Royalty Fee

Blue Planet's process permanently sequesters carbon dioxide in various building materials resulting in carbon neutral and carbon negative products. The bicarbonate materials also have value added features such as: 1) Light weight aggregate and bagged concrete where portability and specific gravity are significant design concerns. 2) Roofing granules that can reflect up to 96%, and up to 75% as shingles. Common asphalt roofing reflects only 10%. By reducing the absorption of solar heat, the use of energy for air-conditioning can be minimized during hot summer months. 3) High solar-reflective cool pigments can be synthesized to color roofs and exterior walls, allowing buildings to absorb less heat from the sun, remaining cooler during hot summer months. 4) Replacement of Titanium Dioxide (TiO2), one of the most widely used white pigment, at 100X less expense and higher solar reflectance. The royalty fee is based on the amount of end-product revenue generated.
