The world’s economies demand the coexistence of clean and efficient waste gas and fossil fuel combustion together with continuing development of renewable energy sources. Our products provide low-emission combustion of traditional fuels and waste gases for cleaner energy production and waste gas management.
C6 has developed and patented (with additional patents pending in over 40 countries) the Toroidal Plasma Assisted Catalytic Combustion Chamber. The TPACCC’s innovative design and geometry allows for the efficient and extremely low-emission combustion of any flammable liquid or gas. The TPACCCTM fulfills the promise of clean combustion for these materials.
The TPACCC’s unique design and geometry deliver a range of unique advantages to numerous existing, and several entirely new, industrial applications, including waste gas incineration and power generation, hydrogen production, sour gas and H2S combustion, primary and backup power generation from conventional fuels, liquid coal combustion, CHP (combined heat and power), and numerous refinery applications.
C6 holds a portfolio of patent rights and pending applications in countries around the world focused on its innovative combustion chamber that can be used for a variety of gas and liquid conversion and low emission combustion applications.
C6 Toroidal Plasma-Assisted Catalytic Combustion Chamber (TPACCCTM) is capable of reacting any combustible gas or liquid, including materials such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S) that are too corrosive to be handled by existing engines and create harmful emissions when burned off by flaring or expensive Claus processing.
Unlike existing technologies, the TPACCCTM utilizes a toroid-shaped chamber that burns fuel longer and at higher temperatures while achieving ultra-low NOx emissions, combusting fuel more efficiently and reducing pollutants.
The C6 TPACCCTM combusts waste gases onsite with reduced emissions and separation into elemental and harmless by-products, thereby outperforming current methods of disposal including flaring at upstream production sites with scrubbers and emission treatments, and landfill gas venting and disposal. Heat and steam production for power generation, by way of patented heat exchanger technology, adds value to the waste gas incineration process.
C6 has partnered with leading Polish scientists in implementing a pilot project in Poland by which the TPACCCTM is part of a patent-protected liquid coal production methodology. The method, developed with the specific purpose of radically reducing the harmful emissions produced during the combustion of coal, provides breakthrough technology for every country that relies heavily on coal for energy production.
The vast majority of the world’s hydrogen is produced from natural gas, coal and oil. But what if it were possible to produce hydrogen from H2S – an abundant gas that is currently little more than a dangerous waste product? The TPACCCTM and its patent-protected heat exchanger are constructed of corrosion-resistant materials and are capable of cracking H2S into elemental hydrogen and sulfur. In this manner, the TPACCCTM can produce hydrogen not from expensive gas, coal and oil, but from a cost-free waste gas.
The TPACCC and accompanying patented heat exchanger provide an alternative means to separate elemental sulfur from H2S. The technology can replace or augment the Claus process in sulfur recovery units, thereby reducing cost and creating alternative revenue streams from the sale of separated products. And, unlike the Claus process, which involves multiple stages of reheaters to extract sulfur, the C6 process can extract sulfur in one single stage by directly combusting H2S and producing elemental sulfur and hydrogen through the thermal cracking process.
Approximately 40% of the world’s remaining natural gas reserves are classified as “sour,” meaning that they contain significant concentrations of hydrogen sulfide. While H2S is abundant, it is also extremely corrosive and cannot effectively be combusted using today’s combustion technology. The TPACCCTM resolves this issue. The unique design geometry of the TPACCCTM allows the chamber to be constructed of materials impervious to the corrosive effects of sour gas and pure hydrogen sulfide, thereby unlocking the key to the ultimate waste-to-energy industry.
The efficiency of the TPACCCTM and its accompanying heat exchanger provide a host of options for use as a primary or back-up power generation source that can replace various industrial and commercial diesel generators. In combination with the development of a patented turbine, the C6 can provide a range of clean and efficient power generation solutions utilizing conventional fuels or by-product gasses.
The C6 power generator is the ideal CHP solution. In conjunction with its patented heat exchanger or turbine, the TPACCCTM is the prototypical device to extract energy from any flammable liquid or gas and concurrently produce both electricity and heat from one energy source.
