CarbonReUse Finland
CarbonReUse Finland Oy is specialized in Carbon Capture. In 2009 this development work was started and in 2014 the company was found. The method used was to not use any chemicals, only water thus it is especially clean. Captured Carbon Dioxide is thus clean and no emissions to the nature is generated. The process is also economical because Carbon Dioxide is not bound chemically so no energy is needed for regeneration. The company is having four own patents and sole right to one Post-Desorber patent of XAMK. The company is having three products namely Top Capture®, Heavy Capture and Power Capture. These are all designed to individual Carbon Dioxide densities. For instance, Power Capture is optimized to flue gases of power plants. Product gas Carbon Dioxide is concentrated to 95 – 98 % with the processes of the company. All lines are having a good automation so in normal use no supervision is needed. The lines are also equipped with remote control.

Convion
Convion is one of the leading technology companies developing fuel cell systems based on solid oxide cell technology (SOC).

INERATEC
IC provides modular chemical plants for Power-to-X and Gas-to-Liquid applications and supplies sustainable fuels and products. Hydrogen from renewable electricity and greenhouse gases like CO2 are converted into e-kerosene, CO2-neutral gasoline, clean Diesel or synthetic waxes, methanol or SNG. The innovative reactors provide a high load flexibility as well as quick start-up and shut-down times. Therefore, the reactors are perfectly suitable for fluctuating renewable energy applications, e.g. wind or solar. Additionally, with this reactor concept a cost-efficient, modular numbering-up approach instead of a risky technology scale-up becomes possible, meaning that standardized modules are multiplied to reach higher capacities instead of a traditional scale-up.
