Expansion Energy's "VPS(TM) Cycle" technology utilizes Liquid Air as a medium for storing power at a multi-megawatt scale (from 4 MW to hundreds of MW). VPS also functions as an ultra-high-efficiency power generation plant. The VPS Cycle can be deployed virtually anywhere at low capital cost per kWh of storage, and utilizes only existing "off-the-shelf" equipment. This system is ideal for "bulk" power storage applications, as it can release 8-12 hours of stored power per day. Click here to learn more.
Expansion Energy's "VX(TM) Cycle" technology allows natural gas to be liquefied (into LNG) cost-effectively at small scales - as low as 1,500 gallons per day - or converted into a dense fuel Expansion Energy calls "CCNG(TM)" (cold compressed natural gas). The VX Cycle is an ideal solution for small and mid-scale natural gas storage facilities, for LNG, CNG and CCNG(TM) fueling depots, and for getting natural gas from "stranded wells" to market.
Expansion Energy's "VRGE(TM)" waterless fracturing technology utilizes cryogenically processed natural gas from the targeted hydrocarbon formation itself as the fracturing and proppant-delivery system. Utilization of the VRGE approach does not require any changes to the pre-fracturing stages of a well's development -- i.e., the drilling and perforation of the well bore -- which are conducted exactly the same as for today's hydraulically fractured wells. Moreover, after VRGE completes the fracturing of the formation, the well can be operated just like today's hydraulically fractured wells. Click here to learn more.
Expansion Energy has developed and patented its "VCCS(TM)" technology, a breakthrough solution for capturing and permanently sequestering CO2 from conventional power plants and industrial plants. VCCS(TM) is unlike any other CCS technology being proposed today, with substantial advantages in terms of efficacy and economics. Click here to learn more.
In addition to capturing CO2, Expansion Energy's patented VCCS(TM) technology is an innovative and cost-effective process for extracting rare earth minerals and other valuable commodities from industrial waste streams such as coal ash from power plants and "red mud" from aluminum smelters.
