Babcock & Wilcox releases suite of decarbonization technologies

May 31 2021


B&W’s ClimateBright suite of technologies can capture CO2 and includes the ability to produce hydrogen.

The suite of 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(TM) technology to produce hydrogen, steam or syngas from a variety of fuels or feedstocks while isolating CO2 for capture or other industrial purposes
  • SolveBright(TM) regenerable solvent technology for carbon capture processes
  • OxyBright(TM) combustion process ideal for CO2 isolation and sequestration applications
  • BrightGen(TM) hydrogen combustion technology

Additionally, B&W’s proven and patented waste-to-energy (WTE) technologies, which include a 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,” said Kenneth Young, B&W Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “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.”
