Loop CO2 Secures $1.6M Department of Energy STTR Phase 2 Grant for Groundbreaking CO2 Utilization Technology

In a significant step towards sustainable innovation, Loop CO2, a pioneering company at the forefront of carbon dioxide utilization technology, has been awarded a $1.6 million grant from the Department of Energy (DOE) through the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II program. This award marks a pivotal moment for Loop CO2, as it enables the company to scale their laboratory efforts to a 10L scale, a crucial milestone towards commercializing their groundbreaking technology.

Revolutionizing CO2 into Valuable Products

Loop CO2 focuses on transforming CO2 into thermoplastic elastomers, materials with broad applications across multiple industries. This innovative approach not only helps consume the captured CO2 from the atmosphere¬†but also turns a problematic greenhouse gas into valuable products. These thermoplastic elastomers can be utilized in creating cosmetic oils, adhesives, 3D printing filaments, synthetic rubber, and more, showcasing the versatile potential of Loop CO2’s technology.

From Lab to Industrial Scale: A Leap Towards Sustainability

The DOE’s STTR Phase II grant will assist Loop CO2 in scaling up their laboratory work to a 10L scale, a significant step that bridges the gap between research and industrial application. This scale-up is essential for validating the technology’s efficiency and feasibility in larger production scenarios. Moreover, it provides invaluable data and insights that will inform the development of future pilot plant production and licensing strategies, ensuring the technology’s smooth transition to market.

Paving the Way for CO2 Utilization

Loop CO2’s technology represents a paradigm shift in how we view and utilize carbon dioxide. By converting CO2 into a resource for producing thermoplastic elastomers, Loop CO2 is not only contributing to the fight against climate change but also opening up new avenues for sustainable materials. This approach has the potential to significantly impact various industries, offering a greener alternative to traditional materials and processes.

Looking Forward

With the support of the Department of Energy, Loop CO2 is set to embark on this exciting phase of scale-up and development. The success of their technology in moving from the lab to larger scale applications could herald a new era in CO2 utilization, demonstrating that environmental sustainability and economic viability can go hand in hand. As Loop CO2 progresses with its innovative work, the potential for broad industry application and contribution to carbon neutrality becomes increasingly tangible, showcasing the transformative power of green technology.
