Inventys Thermal Technologies Inc.

Inventys is commercializing the lowest cost and most energy efficient technology for capturing post-combustion carbon dioxide from industrial flue gas streams (VeloxoThermTM) for use in CO2 Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) and Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).


The US Department of Energy estimates that 30 billion tonnes of CO2 could be used for enhanced oil recovery in the United States alone. EOR involves injecting CO2 into oil wells causing trapped oil to easily flow to the surface while permanently sequestering the CO2 underground. Our goal is to capture the abundant waste CO2 from industrial processes such as coal plants, gas turbines, and steam generators for use in EOR and CCS projects worldwide.


The VeloxoThermTM process is intensified temperature swing adsorption using our proprietary structured adsorbent material. When flue gasses pass through the material, CO2 is trapped while allowing others gasses such as nitrogen to pass unhindered. The adsorbent is regenerated using low pressure steam leaving pure CO2.The intensification of the mass and heat transport properties results in a significantly lower capital and operating cost.


Inventys is currently working on several pilot plant demonstration projects with funding from IRAP, SDTC, CCEMC, DFAIT, and Energy Technologies Institute of the UK. Pilot Plant consortium members include numerous major energy and manufacturing companies. The Roda Group and Mitsui Ventures are investors and strongly support the commercialization activities.


Inventys has a seasoned management team with over 100 years of combined experience in this sector. The board of directors consists of notable business leaders Marty Reed, Dan Miller, and Dr. Denis Connor. Recently, Inventys also welcomed Dr. Stephen Chu, the ex US Secretary of Energy and Nobel Prize winner to join our board of directors.
