Skytree Cumulus

Science Park 301, 1098 XH Amsterdam, Netherlands
Founded in 2014 and headquartered in Amsterdam, Skytree harnesses CO2 from ambient air through the power of direct air capture technology (DAC). By providing local, onsite CO2 generation across multiple markets including indoor farming, greenhouses as well as mineralization, Skytree enables a transition away from fossil fuel-based industrial processes and avoids transport to where the CO2 is needed.  The company’s core technology captures CO2 from ambient air and stores it in pressurized buffer tanks where it can be accessed for multiple applications. The modular technology can be set up quickly at any location and scaled to meet the needs of businesses of all sizes.

Orca and Mammoth

Hellisheiði, Iceland

The world’s first commercial Direct Air Capture deployments, paired with subsurface mineral storage.

Climeworks’ Orca is the first operational commercial direct air capture plant in the world, commissioned in 2021. Mammoth, with nearly 4 times the carbon removal capacity, is not far behind, scheduled for completion in 2024. Both plants store CO2 underground in durable mineral form, partnering with CarbFix, a leading Iceland-based innovator in the CO2 mineralization field.

Carbon Capsule Pilot Unit at MDavis & Sons

Kennett Square, PA, USA

Modular direct air capture, energy savings, and improved indoor air quality for buildings.

Carbon Reform’s Carbon Capsule achieves permanent carbon capture, contributing to the reduction of carbon footprints in alignment with corporate and building owners’ climate strategies. Through cutting-edge carbon capture technology, Carbon Reform ensures that captured CO2 is stored in a carbon-negative limestone, offering an effective and reusable solution for reducing carbon footprints. That limestone can be used in steel and glass manufacturing, mining, paper production, water treatment and purification, and agriculture, just to name a few. It’s pilot project is now collecting valuable data on its ability to effectively capture excess carbon dioxide (CO2) and enhance indoor air quality.

Neboda Farms X Skytree

Estrada Fragosiño, 32, Nave 2, Sárdoma, 36214 Vigo, Pontevedra, Spain

Néboda Farms Adopts Skytree Direct Air Capture Unit

Skytree’s proprietary DAC technology captures CO2 from ambient air, filters it using a patented process, and stores it in pressurized buffer tanks from where it can be accessed and reused by any business in regular need of concentrated CO2. Skytree Cumulus, the first commercially available modular unit, will deliver a reliable and uninterrupted supply to CEA businesses, helping to alleviate procurement and transport challenges. Skytree’s fully decentralized solution is onsite, has a small carbon footprint, and is both fully modular and stackable. Néboda Farms is among the first of many controlled environment agriculture businesses that will benefit from the ability to generate its own CO2 onsite. And they will do so in a more sustainable and eco-friendly way, bypassing the harmful processes used by fossil fuel companies
