Svante offers companies in emissions-intensive industries a commercially viable way to capture large-scale carbon dioxide emissions from existing infrastructure, preventing it from entering the atmosphere. The technology developed by Svante captures CO₂ from flue gas, concentrates it, then releases it for safe storage or industrial use, all in 60 seconds. The technology is tailored specifically to the challenges of capturing CO₂ contained in diluted flue gas generated by heavy industries, such as cement, limestone and large-scale hydrogen production.
Svante Inc. has partnered with Lafarge Canada and Total on a CCUS demonstration project, CO₂MENT, consisting of a pilot plant capturing 1 tonne/day of CO₂ from Lafarge’s cement plant in Richmond, B.C. The next phase of the project is to demonstrate CO₂ utilization solutions such as reinjecting it into low-carbon fuels, CO₂ concrete and fly ash.
