Foam Technology

 Our Convictions:

  • Foam – a stabilized mixture of a gas & a cooling liquid – is a practical means to achieve near-isothermal compression and expansion
  • Foam Technology represents the potential revolutionary improvement in fundamental energy conversion processes
  • We have the technical know-how to bring Foam Technology to new applications

Foam has been demonstrated on SustainX’s Isothermal Compressed Air Energy Storage (ICAES) technology – 1.5 megawatt isothermal compressor & expander

Located at their company headquarters, this 1.5 megawatt ICAES™ system uses foam-based heat exchange to cool the compressed air so that it achieves stated thermal efficiencies of >95% according to this white paper by SustainX that describes the method in detail.
