As anthropogenic carbon emissions continue to rise and the effects of climate change become increasingly evident, the need to address these issues has never been more urgent than now. While the realization of the concept of carbon capture and storage has been plagued with setbacks, carbon capture and utilization (CCU) is being increasingly recognized as an excellent solution. Mantra Energy Alternatives Ltd. is the proprietor one of the few viable CCU technologies. The “electro-reduction of carbon dioxide”, or ERC, uses electrochemistry to convert carbon dioxide into one of a variety of high-value products. Of these products, Mantra is currently focusing on formic acid and formate salts. Mantra also licenses an innovative “mixed-reactant fuel cell”, or MRFC, technology. This fuel cell offers several benefits over conventional cells, and, when used in tandem with ERC, can utilize carbon dioxide as an energy storage medium.
