Svante has committed to lending nature a hand by preventing CO2 generated by the world’s key industries from entering the atmosphere. And it’s happening in Saskatchewan, at a pilot test plant with Husky Energy.
For the first time at an industrial scale, Svante’s tech is capturing 10 000 tonnes of CO2 per year. Our approach is separating the CO2 from the nitrogen contained in the flue gas generated by industries such as cement, steel, and oil/gas.
Gas typically vented through a smokestack is now diverted through the Svante capture system – where carbon dioxide is trapped in our proprietary filters and stored in liquid form. Our nanomaterials create a powerful absorbent which gives a sugar cubed sized square the same surface area of a football field.
With a capital cost less than half of the other existing technologies, Svante makes industrial-scale carbon capture technology a reality. At a single facility, this technology can do the work of 10 million trees. Svante offers companies in emissions-intensive industries a commercially viable way to capture large scale CO2 from existing infrastructure – A powerful incentive for industry to join mother nature as an ally in the fight against climate change.
