MOVA Technologies Inc., a technology company based in Pulaski, Virginia in the USA,  which is researching pollution control strategies for industrial emissions, has announced the successful completion of initial proof-of-concept (POC) testing of gaseous contaminants (CO2, SO2, NO) through the Advanced Propulsion and Power Laboratory at Virginia Tech.

Through research at Virginia Tech, the company tested its Panel Bed Filtration System’s ability to remove particulate matter and other pollutants from the air for applications including agriculture, fossil fuel energy production, shipping, and direct air capture. MOVA will now seek commercial partners to pilot test the technology.  

With the Panel Bed Filtration System, industries can now remove air pollutants from a dirty gas stream by capturing gaseous emissions and recycling them. The technology gives a company the ability to capture a pollutant like carbon dioxide and then resell it as raw material. This product is particularly useful for high-emission industries such as livestock farming, fossil fuel energy production, chemical production facilities, and other industries consuming a lot of energy produced from carbon-based fuels.
