Innovative decarbonisation technology splits methane into atoms of hydrogen and carbon.
Apr 06 2023
Levidian, a UK-based climate tech company, has teamed up with Luxembourg's Stugalux construction firm to introduce innovative decarbonisation technology to mainland Europe for the first time. The LOOP device, developed by Levidian, utilises a patented process to split methane into its constituent atoms of hydrogen and carbon, without requiring catalysts or additives. The resulting graphene material is then utilised to produce high-performance, sustainable and durable building products.
Under the deal, Stugalux will utilise LOOP to process biomethane derived from food and agricultural waste. The resultant hydrogen-rich blend will be combusted in a turbine to generate electricity, with graphene integrated into the building products utilised by Stugalux to improve performance and drive decarbonisation. Stugalux plans to initially deploy a LOOP20 system, with plans to expand to two LOOP100 systems by 2025. This will help process almost 250,000 cubic meters of waste gas yearly, producing over 30 tonnes of graphene and preventing the release of 572 tonnes of CO2e every year. According to John Hartley, CEO of Levidian, "Stugalux is a fantastic example of how a LOOP system can be used to decarbonise in three ways simultaneously."
