Abstract
Carbon dioxide capture systems are currently being considered to mitigate the increase in atmospheric CO2 concentration caused by fossil fuel combustion. The costs to implement and operate these systems must be reasonable to minimize economic impacts. In particular, the required compression systems will consume significant power, and they will require large capital investment. Advanced technology is needed to help make capture systems practical and enable widespread implementation. The Creare team has proposed to develop a gerotor compression system that is efficient, robust, and affordable. We plan to market and manufacture gerotor compression systems for a wide range of industrial applications. CO2 capture systems represent one attractive market. Related products include gerotor expanders and engines.
