Clairion™ Technology Overview
Clarion offers a completely new approach for the removal of pollutants (such as NOx, SOx and Hg) from flue gas. This eco-friendly technology, unlike most of the existing technologies, is based on utilizing ionic liquids for innovative absorption and separation processes applicable for various industrial processes.
Unique liquid formulation
Clairion’s unique liquid formulation is comprised of modified ionic liquids and oxidizers and forms the basis of the C-HgR™ and C-MPR™ solutions.
Ionic liquids are salts in a liquid state which have unique physical properties, such as low or non-volatility and exclusive complex properties, high thermal stability, and immeasurable vapor pressure.
Unlike other processes, our process ensures the absorption liquid operates in a “closed cycle” in which the flue gas impurities are captured and concentrated within the liquid as a stable complex.
Our unique wet scrubber was designed for swift and effective oxidative absorption of the emitted pollutants. The highly stable composite liquid which exhibits zero vapor pressure is contacted with the flue gas. This results in a rapid oxidation/absorption of the pollutants followed by a complex formation and absorption in the ionic liquid.
Multi pollutants removal
Our technology removes a wide range of pollutants, including NOx, SOx, and mercury in a single process – demonstrating exceptional removal rates along with significant environmental and financial benefits.
Another advantage of our technology is the selective extraction of the pollutants – our unique simple and efficient extraction process enables separation of the absorbed pollutants as concentrated nitrite fertilizer and concentrated sulfuric acid continuously producing valuable products instead of waste streams, while all forms of mercury remain in the absorption liquid and can be stabilized and then removed by an additional side process.
