Patent
Kilimanjaro Energy Inc. | Date: 2013-01-09

The present disclosure provides a method and apparatus for extracting carbon dioxide (CO_(2)) from a fluid stream and for delivering that extracted CO_(2 )to controlled environments for utilization by a secondary process. Various extraction and delivery methods are disclosed specific to certain secondary uses, included the attraction of CO2-sensitive insects, the ripening and preservation of produce, and the neutralization of brine.

The present disclosure provides a method and apparatus for extracting carbon dioxide (CO_(2)) from a fluid stream and for delivering that extracted CO_(2 )to controlled environments for utilization by a secondary process. Various extraction and delivery methods are disclosed specific to certain secondary uses, included the attraction of CO_(2 )sensitive insects, the ripening and preservation of produce, and the neutralization of brine.


Methods, systems, apparatuses and compositions for extracting selected gases from a gas stream are provided. In some embodiments the invention involve a process of bringing a gas stream in contact with a primary sorbent, releasing a selected gas from the primary sorbent to create a selected gas-enriched gas mixture, and bringing the selected gas-enriched gas mixture in contact with an aqueous solution. The aqueous solution absorbs the selected gas from the selected gas-enriched gas mixture. In some embodiments, the selected gas is carbon dioxide.


The invention relates to an apparatus for capture of CO_(2) from the atmosphere comprising an anion exchange material formed in a matrix exposed to a flow of the air, and to a process for removing CO_(2) from the air, comprising the steps of passing the air in contact with the apparatus, whereupon CO_(2) is captured by the anionic material, and treating the anionic material to remove and concentrate the captured CO_(2).

A method and apparatus for extracting CO_(2 )from air comprising an anion exchange material formed in a matrix exposed to a flow of the air, and for delivering that extracted CO_(2 )to controlled environments. The present invention contemplates the extraction of CO2 from air using conventional extraction methods or by using one of the extraction methods disclosed; e.g., humidity swing or electro dialysis. The present invention also provides delivery of the CO_(2 )to greenhouses where increased levels of CO_(2 )will improve conditions for growth. Alternatively, the CO_(2 )is fed to an algae culture.

Disclosed is a method for removing carbon dioxide from a gas stream, comprising placing the gas stream in contact with a resin, wetting the resin with water, collecting water vapor and carbon dioxide from the resin, and separating the carbon dioxide from the water vapor. The resin may be placed in a chamber or a plurality of chambers connected in series wherein the first chamber contains resin that was first contacted by the gas, and each successive chamber contains resin which has been wetted and carbon dioxide collected from for a greater period of time than the previous chamber, and so on, until the last chamber. Secondary sorbents may be employed to further separate the carbon dioxide from the water vapor.
