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...

All of us at Carbon Engineering are very excited to have been short-listed for the Virgin Earth Challenge this month! Dr. Alan Knight, VEC Director, was recently in Calgary for a press release to announce that further showcasing of the prize and its competitors would...

July and August 2011 have been very exciting months here at CE! For the past year, one of our principal efforts as a team has been the design, engineering, and fabrication of our “Outdoor Contactor” (OC) prototype. The OC has been designed to test critical...
