Reducing the carbon footprint with CO2 conversion technology.

EPCM Global is a management consulting services firm for public and private sector clients that focuses on researching, identifying, and developing innovative solutions to address major challenges. It is working to reduce carbon emissions from industries in ways that empower and build the sectors. They provide specialist solutions and insights in a number of sectors including Innovation Enablement through Multi-Pollutant Emissions Abatement Technology.

In partnership with the Department of Science and Innovation, EPCM’s CoalCO2-X Programme aims to capture flue gas from coal-fired boilers and use Green Ammonia and Green Hydrogen to turn the flue gas elements into sulphuric acid, fertiliser and other value-added products. Flue refers to a mixture of gases produced by the burning of fuel or other materials. This technology converts those harmful carbon CO2 emissions into valuable products.
