(WO) – Carbon Clean, a leading global carbon capture solutions business, has announced a significant expansion in North America to meet booming demand for its carbon capture technology. The company has opened its U.S. headquarters in Houston, Texas and will double its U.S. headcount to meet demand for CycloneCC, its fully modular technology, in what is expected to become its biggest market.
UK-headquartered Carbon Clean supplies cost-effective industrial carbon capture solutions for essential hard-to-abate industries like energy. Its technology is operating in 49 sites around the world and has captured over 1.8m tonnes of CO2.
The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) is driving enormous demand for industrial carbon capture and has already resulted in a dramatic spike in U.S. enquiries for Carbon Clean – up by over 64% since the passage of the IRA in August 2022.
A radical shift is underway in industrial carbon capture, driven by a new generation of standardized, fully modular, compact carbon capture units that will be prefabricated and mass produced – overcoming the cost and space concerns that have been barriers to deployment. Carbon Clean’s fully modular technology, CycloneCC, can reduce the cost of carbon capture by up to 50% and has a 50% smaller footprint compared to traditional carbon capture units.
Aniruddha Sharma, Chair and CEO of Carbon Clean, said, “Carbon Clean is experiencing phenomenal growth globally, but we expect our expansion in North America to outpace all other regions. As a result, we intend to establish a very significant base in North America, which will include developing a local supply chain to ensure we are set to ramp up commercialization.
“We will be announcing some incredibly exciting projects and partnerships in North America in the coming months, confirming the leading role these geographies will play in delivering industrial decarbonization.”
