The Future of Energy

We’re delivering breakthrough concepts to advance low carbon technologies required to reach net-zero emissions. This includes research & development to enable carbon capture and sequestration (CCS), direct air capture (DAC), 100% hydrogen combustion capabilities, and next generation nuclear technology. These advancements aim to deliver more sustainable, affordable, and reliable electricity for more people.

Our Four Priorities

Carbon Capture & Sequestration (CCS)

CCS is the process of capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) produced during power generation and industrial processing and storing it underground so that it does not enter the atmosphere. Advanced Research is pursuing development of solid sorbent-based carbon capture technology, including characterizing, testing, and evaluating an extensive range of sorbent materials. Additionally, we’re exploring complementary technology improvements to increase the system effectiveness.

Direct Air Capture (DAC)

Like point source carbon capture, direct air capture is achieved using sorbent- or solvent-based technology, but the materials differ due to differing environmental conditions. Advanced Research is leveraging decades of experience in materials discovery and scale-up, thermal management, air flow fluid mechanics, and heat exchangers to develop integrated, innovative sorbent material systems for CO2 capture.

100% Hydrogen (H2) Combustion

Hydrogen fuel produces net zero CO2, but today’s internal combustion engines are not designed to easily accommodate hydrogen and its challenging properties. Advanced Research is developing micro mixer and axial fuel staging technologies to engineer retrofittable combustion systems that are capable of operating on 100% hydrogen. These advancements will enable turbines to burn higher hydrogen concentrations with lower NOx production.

Next Generation Nuclear

Nuclear power is the most dependable source of carbon-free power generation and as such, is critical for a carbon-free future. Advanced Research’s nuclear focus spans both physical and digital technologies to enhance legacy reactors. We’re also pursuing design and development of a small modular reactor (SMR) and working on government projects aimed at enabling affordable ways to recycle used nuclear fuel.
