Fossil fuels continue to be the largest feedstock used in energy and electric power generation world-wide. The use of coal and other fossil fuel sources produces various harmful acid gases, including Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Sulfur Oxides (SO2), Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), and Mercury emissions. remains the most harmful greenhouse gas (GHG) which urgently needs to be addressed. Currently Emission of sulfur oxides (SO2) into the atmosphere causes acid rain, while emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) causes the generation of ozone within our habitable levels of the atmosphere. Ozone is important in reducing the sun’s damaging effects on the earth within higher altitudes. However, ozone is a hazard to human and animal life when within our habitable altitude. Mercury emissions from coal fired plants acts as a neurotoxin, causing harm to the brain and nervous system. While short exposures to mercury emissions is very dangerous to pregnant women, young children and all adults are at risk for serious medical problems. Carbon Dioxide (CO2), remains the most harmful greenhouse gas (GHG) that contributes the greatest to global warming.
Problem Summary: . Fossil Fuel Electric Power Generation
- 67% of U.S. electric power is derived from fossil fuels
- Fossil fuels are the main source of carbon and acid gas emissions
- No current cost effective solution to meet EPA standards for emissions control
- Continued closures of coal-fired generating stations
- Imminent economic devastation: Industry and regionally
- Conversion to natural gas creates additional emission issues: Methane and NOx
- Acid Rain Program (ARP): Standards for SO2 and NOx from the power sector.
- CAIR: Three separate cap and trade programs for SO2 and NOx.
- Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS): Standards for Mercury, particulate matter and acid gasses.
- EPA’s Clean Power Plan: Plant CO2 emissions reduction by 32% below 2005 levels by 2030
- New Coal Plants: Limit of 1400 lbs. CO2/MWh
- Natural Gas Plants: Limit of 1000 lbs. CO2/MWh
Millenium SynthFuels Solution:- Exhaust Gas Cleanup System for Fossil Fueled Powerplants (Patent Pending)
The Millenium SynthFuels patent pending Exhaust Gas Clean-up technology is the only proven cost effective emissions control system that can effectively remove SO2, NOx, CO2, and Mercury emissions from fossil fueled power plant exhaust system. Our technology does not require any changes or modifications to operational infrastructure of existing fossil fueled plants. The unique design allows fossil fuels plants to introduce harmful exhaust gas stream from exhaust ports directly into our system before being emitted into the atmosphere. Our system can remove harmful emissions that exceeds EPA regulatory standards from coal fired and natural gas fired plants create a positive impact on the environment
- No changes to any power plant infrastructure
- Direct feed of harmful gases from plant exhaust port into our system
- Carbon negative solution
- Efficient and cost effective carbon emissions solution
- Removes mercury and other acid gases
- Easy to deploy and scale
- Revenue streams from byproducts of our process
Multi-Stage Temperature Separation of Gas Impurities (Patent Pending) Cryogenic System
Our Patent Pending Technology was designed to use a temperature based system for separating impurities from exhaust gases being emitted from fossil fueled power plants. Our technology can also be used to reduce trace impurities present in synthesis gas.
In partnership Arizona State University eProject, a prototype or our cryogenic exhaust gas cleanup system is currently being built and tested.

Landfills produce significant air pollution and hazardous health issues with ground water contamination, as well as fires and explosions of gases. Combustion of coal for electricity produces the largest source of carbon and acid gas emission. With the awareness and global movement for climate change, gasification technology is now a major consideration for cleaner energy production. Gasification allows the use of coal, biomass, and municipal waste, for produce electricity, synthetic fuels, methanol, a substitute for natural gas, and other industrial applicationsand as such one of the most important first steps in climate change solutions.
Plasma gasification is the current solution for converting municipal waste, biomass, and coal into synthesis gas (syngas), a gas fuel, consisting primarily of hydrogen and carbon monoxide. Syngas is a
valuable gas fuel that that can be used to produce electricity, synthetic fuels, methanol, a substitute for natural gas, and other industrial applications.
