LOOP: Turning methane into green graphene


The race to decarbonise heavy industry has given birth to innumerable innovations within the clean fuel sector. From low carbon liquefied natural gas (LNG), and biofuels to carbon capture and storage (CCS), and the myriad colours of hydrogen, industry is evolving and it’s taking no prisoners. The new technologies spawned out of this wave of innovation are often referred to as climate technologies, or climate tech.

One such self-labelled climate tech company is Levidian, a UK-based clean energy specialist. The company uses its proprietary technology to break down methane into its constituent molecules: carbon and hydrogen. Labelled by Levidian as a rapid decarbonisation device, it can be integrated to any site that produces methane or uses natural gas. 

This would enable companies to remove methane – a pollutant that has 86 times the global warming potential of CO2 – without generating excess CO2.
