Paxton Corporation is an energy focused company based in Calgary, Alberta and has aggregated certain technologies including CES’ oxy-fuel combustor for use in the extraction of hydrocarbons. Recognizing the potential for this technology in the energy sector, Paxton has become a strategic partner to CES and is its single largest shareholder.
Paxton will market and use the "G2S2" configuration, developed jointly with Paramount Resources Ltd. ("Paramount") and CES, which combines CES' gas generator with proprietary steam separation technology, for use in the Oil Sands of Canada. More specifically, the G2S2 will generate tremendous thermal energy for recovery of heavy oil without emissions and the need for expensive water treatment facilities. Paxton, along with Paramount, holds an exclusive licence for the G2S2 technology in Canada and a non-exclusive licence worldwide.

US Department of Energy
The United States Department of Energy (US DOE) works to ensure America’s security and prosperity by addressing its energy, environmental and nuclear challenges through transformative science and technology solutions.
DOE has supported CES since its early days developing the first commercial scale Direct Steam Gas Generator. In 2010, CES was awarded $30 million in ARRA funds to develop an industrial-scale oxy-fuel turbine (OFT) capable of powering approximately 150,000 homes. This funding allowed CES to purchase a Siemens SGT-900 B12, and modify it for use in an oxy-fuel power system. Our development approach aims to bring a high-temperature OFTs to the commercial market at a greatly reduced cost. With this OFT, oxy-fuel power systems will offer competitive cycle efficiencies among base-load plants utilizing carbon capture technologies, including pre-combustion, post-combustion and oxy-combustion, providing a technological leap toward efficient, near-zero emission power plants operating on fossil fuels.
