We capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and permanently remove it at a price-point below other technical approaches available on the market today. Our integrated approach to carbon management also supports the circular economy and builds resilience for communities by addressing water scarcity, expanding energy access, and creating local jobs. Supporting adaptation efforts while mitigating emissions is a core strength of Capture6’s approach to carbon removal.
Capture6 facilities can be readily adapted to generate clean, green by-products, such as green hydrogen, lithium, or other industrial chemicals to decarbonize other processes. This process transforms carbon removal from a cost center into a revenue generating opportunity with a wide financial and environmental impact.
Our approach is highly flexible. We utilize all sources of renewable energy and offer several options for permanent carbon storage and use. Our systems are highly effective at direct air capture, versatile and adaptable to varying geographical regions and inputs.
Our direct air capture (DAC) and enhanced mineralisation approach is one of the world’s leading solutions for permanent and irreversible carbon dioxide removal. No permanent carbon removal method has ever been applied at any scale close to the 20 billion tons that need to be removed annually to limit warming under 1.5C°. Our solution for direct air capture and carbon sequestration overcomes the dual challenges of cost and scalability.
With various revenue generating opportunities and gigaton removal goals, Capture6 sets new standards for affordability, scalability, and accountability. We achieve this through a novel re-organization of existing technologies, resources, and materials that do not require the creation of a whole new supply chain. This series of equipment allows us to simplify the traditional DAC process by converting CO₂ to carbonates. In our approach, basic chemistry does the work for us and the amount of CO2 sequestered can be easily determined by the amount of carbonates produced.
Around the globe, communities are suffering from water insecurity and these challenges will only increase with a changing climate. Beyond its direct financial and climate-related outputs, our process yields freshwater that can enhance water treatment and recovery processes in these sensitive areas. Excess salty water from desalination plants and water recovery systems is often redeposited in the ocean, damaging local ecosystems. Capture6 uses this salty water to create our solvent to remove CO₂. Due to our synergies with water management and treatment, our process can recover up to 70% of the water treatment reject for drinking and industrial purposes – creating a meaningful synergy between carbon removal and water availability. We can also desalinate brackish water aquifers in the process of carbon removal. This technical approach allows us to remove CO₂, mitigate local environmental impacts, and improve water security.
Capture6 has developed the SPACERSTM framework to describe our approach to direct air capture. SPACERSTM is based on the Oxford Principles on Carbon Offsetting that calls for moving to CDR that is permanent, irreversible, and with a small physical footprint to not displace or impact local communities.
Our approach is coupled with a focus on co-benefits and circular economy thinking – for instance, ocean microplastics removal, fishery restoration and using waste streams from other industries in our processes.
We work with renewable energy providers, various partners, and facilitators aligned with our mission of deploying gigaton-scale permanent removal within this decade. We’re establishing a series of joint ventures around the world to maximize our impact.
