SOCIETAL IMPACT

Carnot’s technology addresses a very significant global energy challenge. In the United States, industrial air compressors consume over 12% of manufacturing electricity consumption, or 399 trillion BTU. As shown in the table below, on a global basis, compressors driven by electric motors, are estimated to consume 32% of the electricity consumption from electric motor driven systems, or 2,267 Terawatt Hours Per Year in 2006. At $0.10 per kilowatt hour, this translates into nearly

 

$227 Billion of annual electricity costs for compression.

CARNOT’S TECHNOLOGY CAN REDUCE THESE COSTS BY 20%

PRODUCT & VALUE PROPOSITION

As much as 90% of the energy input to compressed air is lost, primarily due to the heat of compression. Carnot’s proprietary compression technology solves the heat of compression problem by:

     

  • Compressing a gas/liquid emulsion through a series of compression tubes within a rotating compressor.
  • Emulsion travels from the inner diameter to the outer diameter of the compression tubes the higher density liquid compresses the gas through centrifugal force.
  • System facilitates instantaneous heat transfer from the gas to the liquid which is then efficiently dissipated through a heat exchange process.
  •  

System maintains very low operating temperatures and produces oil-free compressed air and gas at low discharge temperatures.

 

COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

Carnot’s technology fundamentally transforms compression by removing heat during the compression process, rather than after it has been compressed.

By capturing the waste heat of compression throughout the compression process, the energy required to compress air can be reduced by 20% or more compared to state of the art compressor systems currently used throughout industrial applications.

Carnot’s technology is well-positioned to positively impact society by reducing the carbon footprint of industrial, commercial, and residential uses of compression
