Construction and commissioning of CE’s pilot plant is continuing in Squamish, BC. A lot has happened in the last few months, and we now have most of the major equipment at site and installed. A big effort for us in recent weeks has been to...

Construction is deep under way at our Squamish demo plant site. The CE team has been working toward getting the air scrubber and pellet reactor installed these past two months. We call this the “wet end” of the plant, since both components circulate liquid, to...

The installation of our demonstration plant in Squamish is now well underway. Site preparation and concrete pouring for equipment foundations started in January and are now complete. In the past several weeks, major pieces pre-fabricated equipment – including the Air Contactor and Pellet Reactor –...

The CE team is excited to have broken ground on our new pilot demonstration project this week in Squamish, BC. For the past year, we've been working diligently on financing and engineering our most ambitious hardware demonstration project yet. We are now entering the construction...

We are thrilled at the recent publication of a Harvard Business School case study centered on Carbon Engineering. We have been working with HBS Professor Joseph Lassiter and case writer Sid Misra for the past few months as they pulled this case together, and it...

Our “Outdoor Contactor” prototype successfully wrapped operations this past October. After our initial run in the summer/fall of 2011, a big goal for us this year was to log performance data in a continuous, long-term operation mode. It took a lot of effort from the...

We are happy to announce that Carbon Engineering has been selected for inclusion in the most recent round of grant funding from the Climate Change and Emissions Management Corporation (CCEMC). This grant will be used to fund our upcoming end-to-end pilot plant, which we are...

From Mar 07-08, the University of Calgary’s Institute for Sustainable Energy, Environment, and Economy hosted the first ever “Direct Air Capture Summit” (DACS). Carbon Engineering co-sponsored this event, and helped to organize it. DACS was conceived with a mission of gathering leading thinkers and stakeholders...

We have had a very successful season with our outdoor contactor prototype. After our installation and start-up procedures in August, we were able to accumulate well over 500 hours of air ingestion as we progressed through packing conditioning and CO2 absorption stages. In October, we...
