CO₂ Transformation to Drive Industry in Mexico

Providing Concrete Answers



  • According to UAEM, 83% of a company's emissions stem from the large amount of energy used to power processes, such as lighting, air conditioning, heating, water heating, appliance energy, air conditioning refrigerants, among others.


Carbon-based compounds form the backbone of our modern world, as they constitute the majority of materials used across all industries. The issue arises from the fact that this carbon is currently sourced from fossil fuels, causing significant environmental impact. What if we stopped exploiting fossil fuels to obtain essential carbon products?


Oxtron is a CleanTech firm offering a comprehensive and adaptable solution to manage environmental impact through a technological service that measures companies' carbon footprint and provides a concrete answer: leveraging residual CO₂.


The industrial function is crucial for the Mexican economy, serving as providers of services or consumers across most sectors, making them essential for driving greenhouse gas emissions reduction. By implementing technologies that efficiently use residual carbon raw materials, they can not only measure their emissions but also store and trade them.


The decarbonization solution provides the knowledge, tools, and support many industrial process companies need to maximize capturing their inevitable emissions.


According to a publication from the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico, 83% of CO₂ generated by companies occurs during the use, start-up, and maintenance stages of their operations, as a significant amount of energy and products are required for processes to function, such as lighting, air conditioning, heating, water heating, appliance energy, air conditioning refrigerants, among others.


As a predominant element in all processes, carbon becomes a goldmine waiting to be tapped. But how?


Oxtron provides companies with deep insights into their carbon performance strengths and weaknesses. This baseline allows companies to drive improvements and include measures to capture and reduce their carbon footprint. But the process doesn't stop there; we go a step further by offering the opportunity to transform CO2 into useful raw materials for the production of the world's most commonly used chemicals, materials, and fuels—all from companies' emissions.


The carbon capture and purification process start by connecting equipment directly to companies' chimneys or stationary sources. This connection redirects gases that would normally be emitted into the atmosphere into the system. Once the gases enter the system, the purification phase begins.


During this stage, harmful materials such as soot, grease, and ash are removed. Additionally, hydrogen sulfide is eliminated. The resulting CO₂ is purified and pressurized, ready for storage or use.


Carbon capture technology offers a range of key applications that can transform the Mexican industry and significantly contribute to reducing GHG emissions. Below are some of the most relevant applications:


  • Chemical products: CO₂ purification allows obtaining carbon-based raw materials for the production of various chemical products.

  • Diesel and gasoline fuel: It has been shown that atmospheric CO₂ can be converted into diesel and gasoline fuel, representing a promising approach to reducing dependence on fossil fuels.

  • Ethanol and biodiesel: These biofuels are obtained from biomass raw materials that capture atmospheric CO₂ through photosynthesis.

  • Methane.

  • Methanol.

  • Syngas.

  • Raw material and reuse.


In addition to the mentioned applications, Oxtron's solution enables emitting companies to obtain a consistent raw material in the form of purified and pressurized gas. This raw material can be stored and sold to other industries, creating new business opportunities and diversifying revenue sources.


Oxtron's approach is not limited to reducing emissions but also focuses on converting these emissions into valuable assets for companies. This unique approach can open up new perspectives for Mexican companies, allowing them to move towards a more sustainable and profitable future.
