New partnership to deploy one of the world’s largest direct air capture units in Canada

A new partnership that will deploy what is claimed will be the world's largest direct air capture (DAC) systems in Canada has been announced.

Montreal-based Deep Sky and UK-based DAC start-up Airhive have partnered to deploy carbon removal technology at the former company's Deep Sky's pilot facility in Quebec in 2024.

The unit will have the capacity to remove 1,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.

Once operational, the companies will monitor the performance of the DAC unit and collect data on the performance in terms of carbon dioxide removal, energy consumption and more.

The partnership aims to validate the technology for commercial deployment in Canada.

Rory Brown, Airhive CEO said: “We have been incredibly impressed by Deep Sky's vision, speed and capability and we're delighted to be working with them to deliver on their vision.

“At 1,000 tonnes annual capacity, our system will be one of the largest installed end-to-end DAC systems in the world and a demonstration of our commitment to scaling low-cost, energy efficient DAC as rapidly as our climate needs and deserves.”
