We develop affordable direct air capture technology

Our target is a CO2 capture cost of

50 euros/ton

Our approach

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.

Small footprint
1,000 tons/year
Low energy usage
50 euros/ton
Carbyon concept
A CO2 adsorbing substance is used to modify fiber membrane material with a huge internal surface, leading to a highly beneficial CO2 capturing capacity.

Modifying the membranes relies on advanced and proven techniques, leveraging production tools that matured and scaled in the semiconductor industry.

Characteristics

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.

1,000 kWh/ton

of energy required by the fast swing process caters for an optimal energy budget.

25 euros/ton

is the capex contribution due to a very lean machine design, leading to an affordable solution at mass manufacturing scale.

Open model

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.
