Proprietary CEFCO Process shockwave technology causes intense collision, energy and mass transfer, and mixing chemicals to capture targeted emissions with tremendous efficiency in compact footprint.
The goal of the CEFCO Process is to allow users to reach desired compliance levels (such as the newest national air emissions standards) and, if desired, to generate consistent revenue streams for the user through the sale of the captured and re-converted products to offset the cost of pollution control, or to profit from pollution control as a production technology, or to enable a licensed partner to become a profitable "pollution control service-provider" by earning "professional engineering service fee" as revenue income from any client's pollution-emitting plant.
The key advantage of the CEFCO Process is its use of aerodynamic physics and physical chemistry to drastically reduce CAPEX equipment costs and minimize OPEX input. CEFCO Process is continuous and the equipment is compact. This aerodynamic design allows for minimal usage of site footprint, equipment, and significantly lower input and maintenance costs associated with pollution control, which is traditionally considered as a “high-cost-center.” The superior efficiency, minimal size-foot-print, and low-cost advantage of CEFCO Process is the key economic driver to allow customers to willingly afford and embrace pollution control.

The patented process features a set of supersonic shock nozzles and aerodynamic wind tunnels called “shock tubes.” Polluted flue gas co-flows past the shock nozzles into the “shock tube”. The shock nozzles blast a Mach-speed (faster than the speed of sound) vortex of either a choice of steam or compressed air (recognized as a “shocks mixer”) which shockwaves collide with the targeted pollutants and their customized reactants.

The supersonic collision causes instantaneous energy transfer of heat, pressure and the reaction dynamics of mass-transfer, which cause instant molecular surface chemical reaction. Customized shockwaves combined with select reagents can target select pollution emissions for capture and conversion into desirable chemical products. The high speeds involved allow for the process to be both continuous and have minimal retention time, drastically reducing equipment size, complexity, and requirements.
