Waste is chipped and brought to the Mote facility. It is then heated with limited oxygen to above 1500°F, converting it to a mixture of gases, which is further reacted.
The gas mixture is separated and purified. The result is hydrogen for sale and CO2 for utilization/storage. There is also ash leftover for sale as a fertilizer additive.
Gasification was originally built for combustion and fossil fuels. Mote is redesigning gasification from the ground up for carbon removal and hydrogen production.
Mote technology captures virtually all of the carbon from waste. At the same time, our system has transformative energy efficiency. And unlike combustion, our system uses all of the waste value and improves local air quality.
In addition to cost-competitive fossil-free hydrogen, we generate carbon removal credits. Mote also requires substantially less land, water, and electricity than technologies such as electrolysis and direct air capture.
