CO2 Solutions assigns the implementation of the Saint-Félicien carbon-capture unit to the engineering consulting firm BBA.
Official launch of the Valorisation Carbone Québec (VCQ) initiative, in partnership with the Quebec government and Laval University. The objective of the project is to promote and accelerate the development and demonstration of tangible, environmentally sound commercial solutions to capture and reuse CO2 in value-added applications.
The Quebec government supports the VCQ initiative with a subvention of CAD$15M. The initiative will be deployed until 2019.
The ParaChem chemical manufacturing facility in Montreal East is chosen as host site for deployment of applications as part of the VCQ initiative. CO2 Solutions relocates their carbon-capture unit from Salaberry-de-Valleyfield to Montreal East and starts operations.
The company secures a partnership with Hatch, a supplier of engineering services, for implementation of carbon-capture projects and deployment of the VCQ initiative.
CO2 Solutions also welcomes Kiverdi, a firm specializing in CO2 conversion, as VCQ partner in the promotion of CO2.
CO2 Solutions receives the Gold Leaf award for emerging company of the year (IND&AG) from BIOTECanada, Canada’s national biotechnology association.
