Babcock & Wilcox Announces ClimateBright™ Decarbonization Technologies Platform to Reduce Global Greenhouse Gas Emissions
- Proven Technology Captures CO2 While Producing Hydrogen
- Application for Wide Range of Industries
(AKRON, Ohio – May 25, 2021) – Babcock & Wilcox ("B&W") (NYSE: BW), a leading innovator in clean energy technologies, announces its ClimateBright™ suite of revolutionary decarbonization technologies designed to help utilities and industry aggressively combat greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. ClimateBright™ technologies further strengthen B&W’s commitment to clean energy progress and to helping customers worldwide address the most significant environmental challenge in industrial processes and energy generation.
“Our ClimateBright™ technologies can change the world,” said Kenneth Young, B&W Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The United Nations has set a goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and that is supported by more than 100 countries. Through advanced research and development, combined with joint efforts with the U.S. Department of Energy and various universities, B&W has unparalleled experience in clean energy solutions – backed by more than 90 active patents for carbon capture alone – and has the expertise and technology to lead the world’s next industrial revolution toward a zero-carbon future. We are currently working with many clients to determine the best carbon capture solution based on their specific needs.”
B&W’s ClimateBright™ suite of technologies can capture CO2 and includes the ability to produce hydrogen. These technologies have application for a wide range of industries including energy production, food manufacturing, steel, cement, oil and gas, pharmaceutical, petrochemical, carbon black, and pulp and paper.
B&W’s ClimateBright™ solutions include:
- BrightLoop™ technology to produce hydrogen, steam or syngas from a variety of fuels or feedstocks while isolating CO2 for capture or other industrial purposes
- SolveBright™ regenerable solvent technology for carbon capture processes
- OxyBright™ combustion process ideal for CO2 isolation and sequestration applications
- BrightGen™ hydrogen combustion technology
Additionally, B&W’s proven and patented waste-to-energy (“WTE”) technologies, which include its state-of-the-art, highly efficient DynaGrate® combustion grate, are ideal solutions to combat landfill methane – a greenhouse gas 84-times more powerful than CO2 – while simultaneously generating clean, sustainable energy. B&W’s suite of WTE technologies is installed in hundreds of plants around the world, with a combined capacity of more than 48 million tons of waste annually.
“Combatting climate change through the reduction of carbon and methane emissions is perhaps the greatest challenge of our time and B&W is well-prepared for that challenge,” Young said. “B&W is excited to provide the technology and solutions to achieve clean energy globally, and we’re dedicated to decarbonization as we help address the world’s urgent climate objectives.”
