PROJECTS

A high-performance technology in constant evolution 

CO2 Solutions is committed to demonstrations of their industrial lung technology in order to amass an exhaustive data bank that concretely records its unmatched efficiency. The results of all demonstrations to date have met or far exceeded the project’s initial objectives. 
 
The following is a list of ongoing or completed projects designed to demonstrate or improve our technology:  

PILOT DEMONSTRATION WITH PARACHEM

Two capture units are planned at the new Valorisation Carbone Québec demonstration center on the site of the ParaChem plant in Montreal East. The first has been in operation since September 2017 and uses conventional equipment. The second, a very small footprint unit, will be installed and tested in the fall of 2018. Both units are designed to capture and purify 10 tonnes of carbon dioxide per day and will serve to further demonstrate the versatility of the technology — its efficiency in a multitude of configurations, contexts and applications.

COMMERCIALIZATION PROJECT WITH RESOLUTE FOREST PRODUCTS AND
LES SERRES TOUNDRA

CO2 Solutions’ first commercialization project, this installation will capture 30 tonnes of CO2 per day at Resolute's softwood kraft pulp mill in Saint-Félicien, Québec — CO2 that will be transported and reused at the nearby Les Serres Toundra greenhouses. The installation operated by CO2 Solutions will help Resolute reduce their environmental footprint while enhancing Toundra’s vegetable production. Operations will begin in late 2018.

NRG COSIA CARBON XPRIZE COMPETITION

CO2 Solutions is a co-finalist in this prestigious international competition focused on innovative technologies to convert carbon dioxide emissions. The third and final round, a demonstration phase, will continue until March 2020. With five finalists in the two parts of the competition, the winners will each take home a prize of US$7.5 million.
CO2 Solutions is a finalist twice in the final round, a natural gas demonstration with partners CERT and Carbicrete.

Completed projects 

PILOT DEMONSTRATION WITH HUSKY ENERGY (2015)

Unit used in combination with a natural gas fired boiler to capture 10 tonnes/day of GHG, as part of semi-autonomous operations over 2500 hours at Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, near Montreal, Quebec. 
Husky Energy is one of Canada’s largest integrated energy companies.

PILOT DEMONSTRATION WITH THE ENERGY & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH CENTER (2014-2015, 2016)

Benchmark initiative for the capture of 1 tonne-CO2/day from both natural gas and coal combustion flue gases at the high-tech branch of the University of North Dakota (UND), recognized as one of the world's leading developers of cleaner, more efficient energy and environmental technologies.

TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT WITH GASTRAN SYSTEMS (2015)

Collaboration to optimize the rotating packed bed integration in the CO2 capture unit to reduce the unit size and ease its installation in constrained industrial spaces. The work resulted in the design of a unit thirty times more compact than a conventional unit.
