Deep Sky, a Montreal-based gigaton-scale carbon removal project developer, and ReCarbn, a Netherlands-based company, have partnered to deploy carbon removal technology in Canada. ReCarbn will deliver and install a DAC unit with the capacity to remove 50 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year, says the company in a press release.

  • Deep Sky and ReCarbn will deploy carbon removal technology in Canada.
  • The system will be fully operating in 2024.

The system will be located in Quebec in 2024 and will tap into the region’s vast reserves of renewable hydroelectric energy. The technology is based on a circulating solid sorbent mechanism, which reduces the energy consumption needed. ReCarbn circulates the sorbent between reactors to reduce energy consumption and boost productivity compared to conventional fixed bed technologies.

Data will be collected on the performance of the unit in terms of carbon dioxide removal (CDR), energy consumption, and more. Together, the partners aim to validate the technology for commercial deployment in Canada as part of Deep Sky’s mission to develop Canada into a world-leading hub for carbon removal. 

Powered by renewable energy, Deep Sky’s facilities are strategically located in Quebec, a region with an abundance of hydroelectric power, immense wind power potential and a vast territory with the rich geological makeup required for carbon capture.
