Strataclear, a New Groundbreaking Technology, Reduces CO2 Emissions in Moving Vehicles and Home Heating Systems
Unique Process Revolutionizes Disposal of Dangerous Carbon Dioxide Gas
Clean Byproduct Material Creates Viable Profit Centers
New York City, September 8, 2012 – Ryncosmos LLC today introduced Strataclear®, the first carbon capture technology that reduces CO2 emissions in moving vehicles and home heating systems, changes the way we dispose of hazardous carbon dioxide gas and produces a nontoxic byproduct material that has numerous applications across industry creating great potential for lucrative profit centers.
According to Donald G. Rynne, CEO and Founder, Ryncosmos LLC, “The Strataclear® technology, five years in the making has brought us the future today. Its innovation goes beyond anything we hoped for or dreamt about when we set out on this incredible journey to bring cleaner air to the world.”
With patent pending, Strataclear® reduces carbon emissions from any type of internal combustion engine. The exhaust gases pass the catalytic converter then enter the Strataclear® exhaust treatment system where CO2 is absorbed. The purified exhaust with reduced CO2 is emitted from the tailpipe where it captures up to 25% of carbon dioxide in automobiles and up to 40% in trucks. In home heating systems, the technology captures up to 50% carbon dioxide, providing the user with a whopping 37% savings on gas or oil heating bills. The byproduct is a nontoxic chemically inert material captured in the absorber that can be safely stored and used broadly in numerous industrial applications, creating great potential for viable profit centers.
The Strataclear® system will cost $400 for automobiles and slightly more for vans and trucks. It is specially designed to include removable absorber cartridges, which replace the resonator and muffler in a vehicle’s exhaust system. This reduces the price of an automobile by up to $6,000. The solid absorber never changes its form even when it is completely spent. Nor does it impede the flow of the exhaust or engine performance. Contained in a CO2 capture device, the absorber cartridges are simply stored along the perimeter of the car trunk until they are easily replaced at a gas station or another exchange facility.
Following extensive tests at its Program for Advanced Vehicle Evaluation (PAVE) facility, Auburn University certified the Strataclear® technology. The testing was done with a small diesel car equipped with Strataclear®, which made intensive round trips on the Auburn test track at different speeds over a two-day period.
Further research and scientific testing is currently underway at PAVE to continue to evaluate and certify the Strataclear® residual’s countless industry applications. The first in-house test results confirm the residual’s potential for sustainable profit centers.
“We’re proud of our close academic working relationship with Auburn University as a result of this testing and look forward to continuing to work with this outstanding university for many years to come,” said Mr. Rynne.
In addition to reducing air pollution, Strataclear® also solves the storage and disposal issues associated with capturing carbon footprints: “Currently, carbon capture technologies produce a liquid residue that must be carefully disposed of deep underground or under the ocean seabed. Strataclear® captures and traps CO2, producing a nontoxic solid material with far reaching economical and product-enhancing potential for many industries,” explained Mr. Rynne.
The Strataclear® residual has potential in construction, road building, iron smelting and pulp and paper. Moreover, it can be used to remove sulphur from flue gases, in glass making, sewage treatment plants, coal mining and brick making replacing the weighty and expensive-to-transport sand currently being used with equal parts cement. Not only does the Strataclear® brick weigh a third of its traditional counterpart, it is also much stronger and more resistant to heat and cold.
“We believe Strataclear® will help establish an important new global industry, which could create several hundred thousand jobs, boost economies and generate handsome profits,” said Mr. Rynne.
“California’s legislature passed a bill establishing the most extensive CO2 emission controls yet in this country,” said Mr. Rynne. “The law calls for a 25% reduction in state CO2 emissions by 2020. In the Northeast, all states, except New Jersey, have embraced the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative to move gradually to CO2 emissions reduction. We’re hoping the California Legislation will also encourage other states to follow suit,” he said.
A strong proponent of Cap and Trade, Mr. Rynne hopes it will be revived: “Our Government should revisit the benefits of Cap and Trade. Over the past few years, it has gone by the wayside at a time when it makes good sense as a practical market-driven solution for reducing carbon emissions. Making CO2 reductions a commodity will enable those who cut their CO2 emissions to earn credits and sell them to brokers. In turn, the credits will be traded to companies that need offsets against carbon dioxide emissions that have exceeded established limits,” continued Mr. Rynne. “This is a win-win: Greenhouse gases get reduced and those who do the reducing reap a profit.
“We can’t promise to save the world,” said Mr. Rynne, “but we can offer Strataclear® as a game changing alternative that will help make our air cleaner for generations to come while contributing greatly to reversing the effects of global warming. It doesn’t get much greener than this,” said Mr. Rynne.
