Carbon Engineering and Greyrock Energy will partner to develop commercial air-to-fuels (A2F) systems, converting ambient CO2 and renewable power into clean, liquid transportation fuels that can be used in the existing transportation infrastructure.
Carbon Engineering and Greyrock have experience developing the core technologies required for A2F. Carbon Engineering has developed an industrial process for the extraction of CO2 from the atmosphere, and is leading integration of this system with hydrogen production and fuel synthesis steps. Greyrock Energy is a developer of small scale gas-to-liquids systems that produce clean, specification liquid fuels from gas feedstocks.
The parties are working on an integrated commercial demonstration plant in Squamish, British Colombia that will convert atmospheric carbon dioxide to low carbon liquid fuels, using scalable processing technologies. Carbon Engineering has already secured the requisite financing for this project from a combination of private investment and from the British Columbia Innovative Clean Energy Fund. Carbon Engineering and Greyrock are concurrently working on plans to develop larger commercial systems in Canada and the United States.
