Aquaneers core product is Plasmonic Ribbon™, an innovative nanomaterial platform for energy conversion
What We Do
Aquaneers™ was founded by people who are passionate about clean technology and realistic about successfully developing and deploying them. The company strives daily to improve the world through the application of nanotechnology to sustainability with the development of innovative energy conversion materials.
Utilization of CO2 for Menthanol Synthesis
Today’s methanol plants produce over half a ton of carbon dioxide per ton of methanol. Aquaneers technology allows carbon-based fuels to be produced from non-fossil sources using renewable power for a carbon negative outcome. The Plasmonic Ribbon™ enables methanol production from CO2 and hydrogen using solar power to generate fuel, storing energy while reducing atmospheric CO2. Aquaneers was awarded a phase I SBIR from the U.S Department of energy to apply the Plasmonic Ribbon to renewable methanol synthesis through CO2 utilization.
