Accelerated Carbonisation


To make industrial CO2 capturing by minerals possible, the reaction speed must be increased.



Reaction speed

The reaction speed idepends on:

- kind of mineral

- size of the grain

- temperature

- pressure

- water

- CO2

- exchange of ion

- catalyst



There are more then 300 scence publications about  accelerate weathering of minerals and the CO2 capturing.

Common minerals

The most common minerals which can capture CO2 are:


- Olivine

- Serpentine

- Wollastonite



A huge amount of residue can also capture CO2, like:



Fly ash

Red mud

Oil Shale Residue



Co2 is captured and the products are stabilized and more PH neutral.




Innovation Concepts B.V. is designing a novel invention,  The CO2 Energy Reactor

This is a special designed reactor, to capture CO2 by minerals.


The reaction is exothermic, so a lot of heat is generated.

The amount of heat is enough for running the process, the rest can be used for other purpose.
