CO2 Solutions granted three new US patents

Will aid in the capture of carbon emissions in several industry segments.


QUEBEC CITY — CO2 Solutions has been granted three US patents for the capture of carbon emissions from any gas stream with any aqueous solvent or solution.

The Quebec City company that works in the enzyme-enabled carbon capture technology field, said the three patents broadly cover the use of the enzyme carbonic anhydrase flowing through an absorption reactor. The patents would apply to carbon capture in power generation, oil refining, metals production, and cement production, among other industrial applications.

Company president and CEO Glenn Kelly said the patents will provide “significant incremental value in commercializing our technology in the US market.”
