CO2 Solutions Working Through Bankruptcy Process (Ind. Report)
CO2 Solutions Inc
Date: 2019-09-18
Quebec-based enzyme-enabled carbon capture specialist CO2 Solutions Inc reports it has filed a notice of intention to make a proposal pursuant to the provisions of Part III of the Canadian Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act. Ernst and Young Inc. has been appointed as trustee and will assist CO2 Solutions in its restructuring efforts.

CO2 Solutions' technology lowers the cost barrier to Carbon Capture, Utilization and Sequestration (CCUS) positioning it as a viable CO2 mitigation tool, as well as enabling industry to derive profitable new products from these emissions. The company has an extensive patent portfolio covering the use of carbonic anhydrase, or analogues thereof, for the efficient post-combustion capture of carbon dioxide with low-energy aqueous solvents.

CO2 Solutions Completes Que, Carbon Capture Project (Ind Report)
CO2 Solutions
Date: 2019-05-15
Further to our March 15th coverage, Quebec City, Quebec-based CO2 Solutions is reporting completion of its first CO2 capture unit installation at the Resolute Forest Products (RPF) pulp mill in Saint-Felicien, Que. The unit is expected to produce a minimum of 30 tpd of captured CO2 which will be used by Serres Toundra greenhouses. The unit is expected to be operating at full commercial capacity within weeks, according to a release.

CO2 Solutions notes the installation is the first commercial deployment of an enzymatic carbon capture process, the first carbon capture unit in the forest industry, the first carbon capture from unpolished emissions of a lime kiln, and the first unit to make extensive use of C-PVC as a low-cost material in a carbon capture unit.

The Saint-Felicien CO2 capture plant received grant funding from Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC), a loan from Canada Economic Development (DEC), and financial support from the Green Fund through the Technoclimat program of Quebec Energy Transition.

CO2 Solutions,Carbicrete,Carbon XPrize
Date: 2017-09-22
Quebec City-headquartered CO2 Solutions Inc. reports it is partnering with Carbicrete Inc. as a third entry in the NRG COSIA Carbon XPrize. Both CO2 Solutions and Carbicrete had been selected to participate in the second round of the prestigious NRG COSIA Carbon XPrize which allows semi-finalists offering CO2 utilization and carbon capture technologies to enter into synergistic partnerships. These combined entries will propose CO2 Solutions' carbon capture technology with the partner's CO2 utilization technology.

Carbicrete's technology allows manufacturers to produce cement-free, carbon-negative concrete. Concrete is the world's most common building material, but the production of its main ingredient, cement, accounts for 5% of global CO2 emissions.

Carbon XPRIZE Competitors Partner on New Entry (Ind. Report)
CO2 Solutions,Team CERT
Date: 2017-06-30
Quebec City-based CO2 Solutions Inc. reports it will join forces with Team CERT, a multidisciplinary team of researchers affiliated with the University of Toronto, for a combined entry to the Carbon XPRIZE competition sponsored by U.S. utility NRG and Canada's Oil Sands Innovation Alliance (COSIA).

The three-round competition, which aims to advance technologies that convert CO2 from a liability into valuable products, has a total prize purse of $20 million. Both teams have already advanced through the first round of the 4.5-year competition, which runs to 2020. The winners in each of two tracks—one focused on testing technologies at a coal power plant and one focused on a natural gas power plant—will be awarded $7.5 million grand prizes.

In addition to continuing with its initial entry in the competition, through which it will demonstrate its process of capture and reuse of CO2 into acetic acid, CO2 Solutions has also been authorized to partner with other contenders offering a CO2 reuse process only.

Team CERT's work on addressing the need for carbon-neutral fuel systems has focused on efficient reduction of atmospheric CO2 into usable carbon products for renewable fuels and chemical feedstocks.

CO2 Solutions' process exploits an enzyme catalyst called carbonic anhydrase, which is responsible for facilitating efficient CO2 transfer during respiration in humans and other living organisms. The technology lowers the cost barrier to carbon capture, sequestration and utilization (CCSU).

CO2 Solutions' Quebec Carbon Capture Project Underway (Ind. Report)
CO2 Solutions
Date: 2017-05-26
Quebec City-headquartered enzyme-enabled carbon capture technology specialist CO2 Solutions Inc. reports it has completed the preliminary engineering phase of the carbon capture project at the Resolute Forest Products' pulp mill in the Saint-Felicien region of Quebec and the commercial reuse of the captured CO2 by Serres Toundra greenhouse facility.

The next phase of the project will involve detailed engineering of the CO2 capture and reuse facility, which is scheduled to be completed by October 2017. The completed capture plant is expected to be commissioned and begin production in late 2018.

The $8.4 million unit will be designed to produce 30 tpd of CO2, a higher number than what was initially expected. Since the anticipated revenues were based on a 15 tpd estimate, the company now believes annual revenues from the project will amount to $750,000.
