ACA Technology

Advanced Carbon Absorption

What is ACA?


No CO₂ is produced during the entire process, as carbon is bound in the gas and subsequently broken down rather than burned. A major advantage is the broad applicability of the LTC process to a wide variety of input materials that are regionally available, do not require decentralized processing, and do not cause problems with regard to their disposal.

ACA technology

In a long-term research cooperation between AGT and the elite University of St. Andrews, it has been possible to develop the world’s first environmentally friendly and at the same time economically feasible process for the production of high-quality carbon products.

Following LTC technology, this also is a thermo-catalytic process for cracking methane and CO₂. Common production methods for manufacturing carbon nanotubes or graphene require extremely high temperatures – ergo a lot of energy – and can be processed mainly through the utiziation of fossil raw materials such as graphite, coal or natural gas. This leads to extremely high production costs in some cases, making widespread use of these high-tech materials impossible. Furthermore, the environment is additionally burdened due to high energy and material input.


Innovation and unique selling proposition

Converting waste into valuable materials

Projects are decentralized via the blockchain and controlled by the community. The world's first and only environmentally friendly manufacturing process of various carbon materials, deriving from any form of waste, such as household waste, commercial and industrial waste, wood waste, sewage sludge or any type of CO₂ emission . In this way, raw material resources are conserved at the same time.

Combination of ACA and LTC technologies

ACA technology can be used in conjunction with LTC technology (in which the synthesis gas is split), but also separately by using existing CO₂ or methane (thus coexistence with existing industrial plants is also possible).

sustainable & environmentally friendly

Due to the significantly lower processing temperatures, much less energy is required during manufacturing, which additionally protects the environment.


If both technologies are used in combination, the self-generated energy can be used for the process, thus creating independence from external power input.

most cost effective production

The "input / output ratio" in terms of raw material cost and energy consumption, is much more favorable in the ACA process for the production of CNT's than in any other process.

green hydrogen

When methane is cracked, an additional "byproduct" is green hydrogen, which in itself is a huge business.
