Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) announced that it has been selected to receive USD 3,300,000.00 in funding from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E). The funding is part of an ARPA-E program unveiled earlier this year—the “Reducing Emissions of Methane Every Day of the Year” (REMEDY) program—that aims to reduce methane emissions in the oil, gas, and coal industries.
ACT together with ExOne Company, University of Southern California (USC), and Zeeco, proposes a novel Swiss-roll incinerator system that can achieve 99.5% flare gas combustion efficiency under a wide flare gas flow rate and concentration.
The REMEDY funding that Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) will receive will be spread across two stages of the program over three years. Stage 1 is will focus on lab-based tests confirming the operability of technical proposals, approaches, and system components. Stage 2 will expand the scale of testing and ultimately include field tests.
