Carbon Capture Firm MOF Technologies Rebrands to Nuada

Thursday, April 27, 2023

2MOF Technologies, a Northern Ireland-based company whose technology efficiently captures CO2 directly from industrial sources, is rebranding to Nuada. The new name is an ode to the company’s Celtic origins and is inspired by the ancient mythical king, Nuada, whose name means “to capture”.

Nuada says that its next-generation "heatless" technology is redefining carbon (CO2) capture, "slashing the energy penalty and costs associated with CO2 capture". Nuada has combined advanced solid adsorbents, named MOFs, with proven vacuum swing technology to enable the separation of COfrom flue gas using pressure instead of heat. This "heatless" system represents a step change in innovation that slashes the energy penalty and cost associated with carbon capture, the main barriers for mass adoption in industry. The company says that the new branding and direction have come at a critical time as the world is sprinting to decarbonize and mitigate the impacts of climate change. This is particularly the case in hard-to-abate industries like cement production, where carbon capture is essential to reaching Net Zero targets.
