TECHNOLOGY

 

Hot Lime Labs system will supply greenhouses with clean, renewable CO2. The system uses a bed patented ‘hot lime’ pellet as a CO2 capture and release mechanism. 

 

The technology is currently at pilot phase, with the first commercial units being produced in 2020.

 

 

HOW IT WORKS

 

The containerised pilot system contains:

  1. Wood chip screw - automatic system that stores the woodchips and feeds the system gasifier as needed
  2. Gasifier - 'burns' the woodchip in a low oxygen environment. This gas is fed into the reaction bed
  3. Hot Lime 'reaction bed' - a bed of patented lime pellets that captures, then releases, the CO2
