U.S. Department of Energy selects PARC to develop low-cost CO2 sensors

PARC, a Xerox company, was selected via a Funding Opportunity Award from the Department of Energy to develop low-cost CO2 sensors. The PARC project is funded by DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) through its Building Technologies Office (BTO), which announced in August 2017 its investment of up to $15.8 million in 13 projects.

For this DOE-funded project, PARC will produce a low-cost, printed sorbent that measures CO2 via physical adsorption. The sensor heats up as a result of the CO2 adsorption, and PARC measures the heat produced to determine the levels of CO2. The goal of the research effort is to develop a low-cost sensor with a sensitivity of 50ppm, said PARC in a statement.
