Applications of ZAP's technology include:
- Combined Coal and Biomass Processing
- Lunar Simulant Manufacture
- Green Manufacturing techniques for the glass industry
- Lithium Ion Electrode Materials
- Nanomaterial manufacture
Combined Coal and Biomass Processing applications of ZAPís technology increase existing coal power plant efficiency, enable pre combustion separation of pollutants in a cost effective and energy efficient technology and facilitate efficient cost-effective subsystem for coal gasification with biomass. ZAP manufactures the lunar simulant components for LHT, OB1 and other proprietary lunar products. ZAP processes in excess of 70% of NASA's approved lunar simulants.ZAP has manufactured MoO3 for lithium ion battery electrodes development for a joint project between NREL, CU and ZAP. Using ZAP's plasma system, raw feedstock and recycled bottles were melted into glass cubes for Owens International. This system can ultimately lead to greener manufacturing methods for the container glass industry. ZAP has produced synthetic and custom botique materials and nanomaterials in significant quantities with excellent energy efficiency.
Coal gasification technology provides a path for the production of electricity, hydrogen and other clean fuels. ZAP's technology can simultaneously process coal and biomass in one unit which leads for increased gasifier system efficiency.
70% of all NASA approved lunar simulant components are produced by ZAP.
