Our mission is to effectively capture carbon without the need for high energy – lite engineering as opposed to heavy engineering – and ultimately aim to transform carbon into a harmless waste compound or reusable fuel.
TGE plan to, within 10 years, deploy 25,000 TGE System units in Ireland and capture 10M tonne per annum (8M tonnes per annum net) of CO2. In parallel, TGE will license its technology to partners to replicate this in other countries with a worldwide target of capturing 100 million tonne of CO2 per annum and growing this over the following decade to 1 billion tonne per annum.
