The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy (FE) and NETL recently selected Susteon under DE-FOA-0002186 to receive $1.25 million of funding to develop a novel catalytic non-thermal plasma (CNTP) technology using metallic/bi-metallic catalysts for utilizing CO2 as a soft-oxidant to produce ethylene and propylene from ethane and propane. This technology has a potential to operate at low temperatures, have flexible operations, be modular, and create a smaller carbon footprint than conventional methods. Susteon is partnering with New Castle University (New Castle upon Tyne, United Kingdom), North Carolina State University (Raleigh, North Carolina), and SoCalGas (Los Angeles, California).
