About Trinity Green Energies
Trinity Green Energies (TGE) is a SME spun out from Trinity College Dublin (TCD) in 2014. The company has a broad-based scientific and business focus which is represented by the founders of the company and holds international patents in the area of carbon capture.
The IP is in the process of being commercialised. Product and process development and commercialisation are taking place at a new facility in Waterford City.
The company is funded by private investors and participates in publicly funded research programmes. TGE is an innovation partner within the SFI-funded AMBER Centre for research into new materials and nanotechnology.
TGE plan to, within 10 years, deploy 25,000 TGE System units in Ireland and capture 10M tonne per annum 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.
Our mission is to effectively capture carbon using stackable modular units powered by renewable energy – lite engineering as opposed to heavy engineering – and ultimately aim to transform carbon into a harmless waste compound or reusable fuel.
