Carbon Removal

Carbon Removal

Radically reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases is essential to avoid the worst scenarios for global warming. Permanent and irreversible carbon removal is not a replacement for the essential reduction efforts, but a complement to rapidly curtailing new emissions through a portfolio of green tech approaches.

Capture6’s innovative direct air capture (DAC) solution offers
net-negative technology that can remove historical emissions from the atmosphere to restore balance.

…we will have to do negative emissions or carbon dioxide removal in the second half of the century, shortly after 2050, in order to limit warming to 1.5C.

Our carbon removal process

Carbon removal is confirmed removal and durable storage of gases such as carbon dioxide (CO₂) from the atmosphere. This is distinct from carbon offsets which are systems by which emissions from activities in one location are ‘offset’ by activities elsewhere that promise to result in carbon removal or reduced emissions. Our approach allows for the amount of CO₂ removed to be easily measured and verified. Both the amount of chemicals used for removal and the weight of output can be directly measured. 

Direct air capture (DAC) is a set of engineering techniques that mimic what trees and plants do in nature – remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Capture6’s DAC process is designed for both flexibility while maximizing CO₂ removal through multiple capture pathways.
Our approach allows for the amount of CO₂ removed to be easily measured and verified. Both the amount of chemicals used for capture and the weight of output can be calculated.

Social and environmental benefits

The climate crisis impacts both global and local communities, and to ensure an equitable transition toward a green future, solutions need to advance UN Sustainable Development Goals. Restoring planetary health as part of DAC is crucial to preventing underrepresented communities from shouldering a disproportionate burden from climate change.

Capture6 DAC approaches are designed with
various co-benefits to support mitigation and adaptation in our communities and the environment. With carbon removal, we can increase freshwater supply for agricultural uses and create new permanent green jobs.

Point source capture​

Emissions reduction will be difficult for certain industries such as those manufacturing ethanol, fertilizers, steel, and cement, creating longer timelines for decarbonization. Carbon capture and storage from their point source of CO₂ production may be necessary. Our technology is adaptable to these scenarios to help tackle those hard-to-abate emissions.

Permanent storage options

We have many potential options for removing and storing CO₂. These can be nature-based (tree planting, regenerative agriculture) or engineered, such as DAC. Some of these options cannot guarantee that the CO₂ will remain sequestered indefinitely. Trees planted for afforestation projects can be decimated by wildfires, releasing and reversing sequestered carbon.

Carbon removal with a duration of 1,000+ years is increasingly required by international standards. Our mineralizing process effectively stores carbon durably for geological timescales of 10,000+ years.

Why Capture6

Maximum efficiency and scalability

  • Our process can be deployed for removing CO₂ from ambient air and point sources such as flue gas. 
  • We repurpose industrial-scale components that are commonly used in the operational environment. 
  • Our technology integrates into existing industrial processes
  • Our innovative business model allows for rapid scaling

Maximizing multiple removal pathways enables us to drive down the cost of carbon removal. We are able to adapt the core technology to take advantage of various local site conditions. Due to various industrial integrations, we can turn carbon removal from a costly stand-alone proposition into an opportunity that drives financial and operational efficiencies.
