|Summary||Ramgen and NPS will collaborate to mechanically design, build and test a specialized compressor. The compressor will be designed for maximum efficiently for use in the process of geologic sequestration of carbon dioxide (CO2). The ultimate goal is to make available cost effective methods and equipment for the reduction excess CO2 in the atmosphere. To this end, collaborators will first design and build a closed loop compressor testing capability within the NPS Turbo-Propulsion Laboratory. This closed-loop system will be used to evaluate the performance of the test compressor.|
