Cooling towers installed

Existing industrial processes and infrastructure, often seen as part of the problem, can be transformed into a significant part of the solution.

Cooling Towers

Thousands of cooling towers are installed across the globe and serve all kind of industries ranging from power generation to chemicals.

Cooling towers use ambient air to cool down water used in the industrial process. Up to 10,000 tons of CO2 are passed through a single cooling tower cell every year.

Using proven engineering principles to integrate DAC within these towers, we can capture CO2 from a cooling tower’s airlfow in large volumes and ramp up capacity remarkably faster and more reliably than other approaches.

DAC Installation

In a DAC installation, air is moved through CO2 filters using electricity-driven fans. Once the filter is saturated with CO2, heat needs to be applied to release it, making it an energy intensive process. By harnessing waste heat from cooling towers, energy requirements for DAC can be reduced significantly.
At Captur, we want to enable existing cooling towers to capture CO2 from the air while cooling water.

From capturing CO2 to storing it permanently

Without proper carbon storage, captured CO2 could return to the atmosphere, negating the efforts of DAC.  To secure CO2 long-term in a stable manner, captured CO2 can be safely sequestered in deep geological formations or as mineral carbonates.

Utilization pathways before long-term storage can also be considered. For instance,  captured CO2 can be used in industrial processes or to produce carbon-neutral fuels and materials.
