We develop affordable direct air capture technology
Carbyon’s solution first saw light at Dutch research institute TNO in 2018. While working there, Hans De Neve investigated the use of thin film technologies for novel solar PV materials. As such, the technology of Carbyon builds upon decades of semiconductor technology developments.
Our target is a CO2 capture cost of
Having the idea is great, but it took a great deal of irrational optimism to really get it done!
Carbyon uses a rigorously different approach compared to competing technologies: a fast swing process by means of a rotating drum that contains a material, modified to efficiently capture CO2 out of air.
This fast swing process is the key to lowering the energy consumption as well as the machine cost.
The thin membrane allows to operate at very low pressure drops, minimizing the energy consumption.
The fast swing process allows for a very compact and reproducible machine design, lowering the manufacturing cost.
of energy required by the fast swing process caters for an optimal energy budget.
is the capex contribution due to a very lean machine design, leading to an affordable solution at mass manufacturing scale.
Carbyon works in the ecosystem of the Brainport Eindhoven region. This allows us to combine the collective knowledge of universities, applied research institutes and the industry, all working closely together towards a product that can be mass manufactured worldwide.
We welcome new partners to our initiative, so please let us know how you think you can contribute.
