(AKRON, Ohio – June 30, 2021) – Babcock & Wilcox ("B&W") (NYSE: BW), a leading innovator in clean energy technologies, is ready to provide its SolveBrightTM post-combustion regenerable solvent based solution to help customers reduce carbon dioxide emissions from industrial and utility plants and other facilities.

SolveBright™ technology is part of B&W’s complete suite of ClimateBright™ decarbonization technologies and was developed by B&W in conjunction with university researchers. This solvent-based post-combustion capture process can be designed to be flexible with a variety of solvents, or it can be optimized to a specific solvent, depending on customers’ needs.

“B&W also has developed technologies to generate hydrogen and produce clean energy from hydrogen fuel, as well as technologies that inherently produce concentrated CO2 for utilization or storage. B&W’s diverse ClimateBright™ suite of technologies has a wide range of applications across many industries, such as carbon black manufacturing, cement, energy production, food manufacturing, oil and gas, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, pulp and paper, and steel,” Young said.

B&W’s ClimateBrightTM solutions include:

  • BrightLoopTM technology to produce hydrogen, steam or syngas from a variety of fuels or feedstocks while isolating CO2 for storage or other industrial purposes
  • SolveBrightTM regenerable solvent technology for post combustion carbon capture
