Quebec-based CO2 Solutions has been granted three U.S. patents for the capture of carbon emissions from any gas stream with any aqueous solvent or solution.

The Quebec City company that works in the enzyme-enabled carbon capture technology field said the three patents cover the use of the enzyme carbonic anhydrase flowing through an absorption reactor.

The patents would apply to carbon capture in power generation, oil refining, metals production, and cement production, among other industrial applications.

Company president and CEO Glenn Kelly “The issuance of these three patents further expands our already dominant intellectual property portfolio for enzymatic carbon capture,” stated Glenn Kelly president and CEO of CO2 Solutions in a January 10, 2013 statement to media. “These patents will provide significant incremental value in commercializing our technology in the U.S. market.”

The patents:

8,329,458, entitled “Carbonic anhydrase bioreactor and process for CO2 containing gas effluent treatment” (http://alturl.com/a8qym)

    Wait a minute. Are you going to capture all the carbon dioxide in the air. Then what is left for the plant leaves? Plant leaves use atmospheric CO2 in order to produce the oxygen that we breathe and the food that we eat. Hold your horse and do not take all the carbon away. Said a junior high school student from Saskatoon city.

    CO2 solution Company. There new method used to capture carbon dioxide is the greatest of them all. I mean other well known method to capture CO2 such as Amine solution or CaO cycling cannot distinguish between SO2 and CO2. These method capture both of these acidic gases.
    The method discovered by the Canadian Company capture CO2 only.
