"This is our first entry into North America as a full EPC provider and we are looking forward to the experience," said Hironobu Iriya, President & CEO of TTCL. "Building Capitol SkyMine® plant, the first commercial scale carbon capture and utilization plant in the US, will have global implications and our experience in the energy market makes us an ideal partner for this project." An internationally acclaimed, globally oriented turnkey EPC contractor, Toyo-Thai Corporation Public Company Limited provides design & engineering, equipment & materials procurement, and construction (integrated EPC) services for turnkey projects, primarilyto the power, petrochemical, chemical, and petroleum industries. "When we looked at EPC partners for the nation's first commercial scale carbon capture and utilization plant, Toyo-Thai's engineering experience really stood out to us," said Joe Jones, founder and CEO of Skyonic. "The company's construction and engineer expertise will be critical as we bring SkyMine® to the commercialization stage with the help of our partners and investors." Skyonic's electrolytic carbon capture technology, SkyMine®, will selectively capture CO, acid gases and heavy metals from the flue gas of the Capitol Aggregates Cement Plant, where the Capitol SkyMine facility will be retrofitted. The captured pollutants will be mineralized into solid products, including sodium bicarbonate, which are stored, transported and sold as safe, stable solids. Process byproducts include hydrochloric acid and bleach, which can also be sold into the market. By producing valuable products using low-cost chemical inputs and operating at energy-efficient conditions, SkyMine® captures CO at a substantially lower cost than other carbon capture technologies, allowing industrial emitters to turn a profit from reduced emissions.
