Abstract With the current shift in government regulatory compliance mandating lowered carbon footprint, the energy industry stands to face stiff economic penalties unless a practical and non-energy-intensive process is utilized to reduce emissions. The primary difficulty in removing carbon dioxide and particulate matter from fired-duty combustion gases is the separation step. In many cases the energy required for the separation of the undesirable matter represents a financial investment that is higher than paying penalties. Stiffer penalties centered on emissions reduction and control will continue to drive technology toward practical solutions to the carbon dioxide issue. The Lang Process Unit employs a patented separation process that separates and sequesters the carbon dioxide and other particulate matter. This separation process is accomplished by simple centrifugal mechanics and is low-energy-intensity. Once the carbon dioxide and particulate matter have been separated from the remaining benign gases, there are a number of treatment options that reduce the carbon dioxide into a benign state as well. As this technology is developed and improved, the future of the energy industry is brighter with a practical solution to the carbon dioxide problem.
