About CO2 Solution
Based in Quebec City, CO2 Solution Inc. has developed a proprietary biotechnological platform for the efficient capture of carbon dioxide (CO2), the most important greenhouse gas (GHG), from power plants and other large stationary sources of emissions. The Company's technology platform exploits the natural power of a biocatalyst (enzyme), carbonic anhydrase, which functions within humans and other mammals to manage CO2 during respiration. CO2 Solution has successfully adapted the enzyme to function within an industrial environment, and thus has taken advantage of a biomimetic approach to CO2 capture based on millions of years of evolution. The Company is commercializing its technology for coal-fired power generation, the oil sands and other CO2-intensive industries where a low-cost capture solution is key to meeting climate change legislation in a cost effective manner.
CO2 Solution's technology platform is protected by several North American and European patents, including the use of carbonic anhydrase for CO2 capture and release in a packed column system. News releases and additional information can be found at www.co2solution.com
