1. Pilot demonstration of direct air capture.
CE’s end-to-end air capture pilot was commissioned in Squamish, B.C., Canada in 2015. Pilot scale equipment - including our air contactor, pellet reactor, slaker, and oxy-fired calciner - was designed with our vendors and partners to accurately replicate the performance of commercial-scale modules. We are still operating this DAC pilot for extended testing and optimization efforts through 2017, and when running, the plant captures and purifies roughly 1 tonne of CO2 per day.
