CO2 Solutions Receives $15 Million To Advance Transformative Carbon Capture Technology In Alberta

QUEBEC CITY, Que. -- CO2 Solutions Inc., the leader in the field of enzyme-enabled carbon capture technology, has announced that it has been selected to receive $15 million in the form of a non-refundable grant from the Alberta-based Climate Change and Emissions Management Corporation (CCEMC). The grant is expected to be used toward the commercial deployment of CO2 Solutions’ technology in Alberta at approximately the 300 tonne-CO2/day scale.

It is anticipated that the project will comprise the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from a major Alberta industrial company, with beneficial reuse of the captured carbon. The reuse of the captured CO2 will improve project economics, while at the same time achieving a considerable greenhouse gas reduction.

The total cost of the project is budgeted at approximately $30 million. The company is currently pursuing non-dilutive financing to fund the balance of the project not covered by the CCEMC grant.

Receipt of the grant is subject to entering into a contribution agreement with the CCEMC and confirmation that all other funding sources have been secured. The company currently is in active negotiations with potential industrial partners to establish the project.

“We are grateful for the very significant support from the CCEMC, which we see as a clear validation of the strength of our technology as a low-cost solution for the mitigation of carbon emissions,” stated Evan Price, president and CEO of CO2 Solutions.

“This announcement comes as we successfully complete our Valleyfield demonstration project that was realized in part due to an earlier grant from the CCEMC, and we thank them for their continued support. This grant means we can accelerate the scale-up of our technology and make an impact towards the reduction of GHG emissions and the beneficial reuse of CO2. Importantly, the low-cost nature of our technology can help industry achieve this without affecting its ability to compete,” said Price.

“CCEMC is pleased to help fund the deployment of this transformative technology that can reduce the cost of carbon capture,” said CCEMC CEO Steve MacDonald. “This project will result in a new installation and create jobs here in Alberta, and is an important step forward in our transition to a lower carbon future.”

CCEMC supports Alberta in the successful transition to a low carbon future. By developing the next generation of innovative and clean technology, CCEMC helps Alberta build an open, sustainable and increasingly diversified economy that attracts investment, facilitates diversification, expands market access and delivers improved environmental outcomes.

CO2 Solutions is an innovator in the field of enzyme-enabled carbon capture and has been actively working to develop and commercialize the technology for stationary sources of carbon pollution. CO2 Solutions’ technology lowers the cost barrier to carbon capture, sequestration and utilization (CCSU), positioning it as a viable CO2 mitigation tool, as well as enabling industry to derive profitable new products from these emissions. CO2 Solutions has built an extensive patent portfolio covering the use of carbonic anhydrase, or analogues thereof, for the efficient post-combustion capture of carbon dioxide with lowenergy aqueous solvents.
