The entire CRH revolution is built around three branches of Chemistry involving three types of energy, namely, Electricity, Heat and Light:
This branch of chemistry is based on the use of electrical currents to drive chemical reactions. Electrochemical reactions are well known and utilized for commercial purposes such as:
CRH Corp. harnesses a variety of electrochemical reactions and technologies, utilizing electric energy as an energy input for the production of CRH Fuels.
This branch of chemistry is based on the use of heat to drive chemical reactions. Temperature is a key variable used in chemical science to manage the rate and direction of chemical reactions. Some chemical reactions release heat (exothermic) others absorb heat (endothermic). Perhaps the best known thermochemical reaction of an exothermic nature, is the process of reacting hydrocarbons with oxygen (combustion), to release heat energy. Hence, the supply or removal of heat to a reaction process is the basis of thermochemical processes. CRH Corp. extensively utilizes thermochemical reactions and processes to convert the necessary feedstock molecules (including CO2) and intermediate products in the processing chain, into the final CRH Fuels desired.
This branch of chemistry is based on the use of light to drive chemical reactions. One of the best known uses of photochemistry is film products for taking pictures, which was of great importance before the digital age in photography and video production. Photochemical reactions for CRH Fuel production are at an earlier stage than the other chemistries, but are demonstrating great promise owing to the possibility of reduction of investment and operating cost in the CRH chain. One important branch of photochemistry relevant to CRH production has been labeled by the scientific community “Artificial Photosynthesis” (AP), owing to its focus on imitating the biochemical process of phytosynthesis with non-biological methods derived from chemistry and chemical science. CRH Corp.'s technology “Innovation Pipeline” includes AP processes for CRH Fuel production.
