Abstract
In this Phase I SBIR, Reactive Innovations, LLC (RIL) proposes to develop a compact and lightweight electrochemical to capture carbon dioxide in the martian atmosphere from nitrogen and argon. Our approach builds on two separately developed technologies in our laboratory involving: 1) carbon dioxide capture and 2) advanced electrode designs. Our approach initially aims to make a compact reactive/separator that can operate continuously with minimum energy requirements for both ISRU process streams in particular the martian atmosphere. The success of this approach demonstrated in a compact and lightweight unit for NASA will allow us to deploy it in the near term for a number of terrestrial-based applications including CO2 sequestration and mitigation.
