- 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 while paper by SustainX that describes the method in detail.
