Since June 2020, Carbon Engineering and our partners have been working hard to progress construction of our new Innovation Centre! We are pleased to share recent visuals below of the site’s significant growth since our February update.
Located on the waterfront in Squamish, British Columbia, this facility will be Carbon Engineering’s advanced development and operations headquarters. This is where we will optimize and improve our groundbreaking Direct Air Capture (DAC) technology that removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Our growing team is already moving into the site, ready for it to start operations shortly.
“As we near completion of the Innovation Centre, Carbon Engineering is approaching a major milestone not only for our company and partners, but also for the future of Direct Air Capture technology,” said CEO Steve Oldham. “At this world-class facility, our talented and growing team will continue to advance our climate solutions. The innovation conducted here will help us further drive down costs, grow efficiencies and roll out next generation improvements to our plants around the world.”
The success of this ongoing project is in part due to the expertise of consulting engineering firm BBA, who were engaged by Carbon Engineering to assist with the engineering design of the Innovation Centre. Working alongside BBA and leveraging their vast experience with industrial engineering design was key in making Carbon Engineering’s Innovation Centre a reality.
