To capture carbon dioxide directly from air in a cost-effective way
Based on the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, to achieve a net zero emission future, the world needs to remove CO2 from the atmosphere at a large scale.
The Ambient CO₂ Harvester
We are developing a technology to remove carbon dioxide CO2 directly from the air in an efficient and cost effective way. The technology is based on the standard process principals used in conventional amine-based carbon dioxide capture.
This system is called the Ambient CO2 Harvester. It has the potential to capture millions of tonnes of CO2 from atmosphere annually. This carbon dioxide can be used as feedstock in beverage industry, greenhouses and fuels synthesis or/and can be stored permanently. The technology also has the potential to be deployed at different scales.
We have been developing this technology using innovative ideas and research in three areas:
- formulation and selection of suitable liquid absorbents
- development of a cost-effective absorber
- design and development of an energy-efficient process for the regeneration of absorption liquid.
