Carbon Capture Machine

University of Aberdeen - Aberdeen Institute of Energy


We offer a versatile, scalable mineralisation technology that profitably converts CO2 emissions from fossil fuel combustion into valuable products. Modular Carbon Capture Machines (CCMs) will be developed, tested and demonstrated to efficiently combine CO2 from stack emissions, an alkali base and formation or produced water (or other) brines containing Ca and Mg (the inputs), to produce valuable solid carbonate feedstocks, and products from those feedstocks (the outputs). The technology can be deployed worldwide.

University of Michigan

The mission of the Global CO2 Initiative at the University of Michigan is to fund and conduct research to transform CO2 into commercially successful products using a system-level process of technology assessment, technology development and commercialization. Our goal: to reduce atmospheric CO2 levels by the equivalent of 10% of current global CO2 emissions by 2030. The Initiative will identify and assist with economics understanding and policy levers needed to speed progress of carbon-based product deployment, while gauging public perception of and interest in these products.

University of Sheffield

Established in 2016 to objectively investigate enhanced rock weathering with croplands as a strategy for safely removing the greenhouse gas CO2 from the atmosphere to cool the planet.

Our long-term programme of multi-disciplinary research is organized across four themes: Earth Systems Modelling, Fundamental Crop Weathering Science, Applied Weathering Science and Sustainability & Society. It aims to deliver transformative understanding of enhanced weathering with agriculture as a strategic ‘negative emissions technology’ for climate change mitigation, with the co-benefit of delivering resource-efficient sustainable food security.

The team is using a transformational catalyst to significantly reduce CO2capture (sorption and desorption) energy consumption and thus the cost. Then, the captured CO2 is converted into fuels and chemicals by using a regenerable material and H2O. Material regeneration is realized by using renewable resources through a new looping process.


Massachusetts Institute of Technology

The MIT Energy Initiative is MIT’s hub for energy research, education, and outreach. Through these three pillars, we help develop the technologies and solutions that will deliver clean, affordable, and plentiful sources of energy. Our mission is to create low- and no-carbon solutions that will efficiently and sustainably meet global energy needs while minimizing environmental impacts, dramatically reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and mitigating climate change.

Our group is actively researching the efficient conversion of carbon dioxide into fuels and high value feedstocks. Carbon capture and storage is one of the most promising strategies for the short term mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions.

We have developed nanostructured, robust, efficient metal catalysts that turn carbon dioxide into fuels and important precursors for industrial processes. We are leveraging interdisciplinary expertise in surface nanostructuring, computational modelling, and electrochemical synthesis to discover materials that can turn CO2 selectively into a programmable range of hydrocarbon products.


University of Sheffield

The UK Centre for Carbon Dioxide Utilisation or CDUUK, brings together seven academic departments at the University of Sheffield to focus on the utilization of carbon dioxide as a feedstock for chemical synthesis.

CDUUK prodives a cohesive centre for interdisciplinary research into carbon dioxide utilization in Sheffield.

Finding a large scale beneficial use for waste carbon dioxide. UCLA’s breakthrough technology first captures CO2 from power plant smokestacks. Then, the captured CO2 is “trapped” to produce a new type of CO2-neutral building material that can be used like cement.

By removing CO2 from power plant smokestacks this technology reduces the largest single source of greenhouse gas emissions. By creating a CO2-neutral building material it also displaces cement, which is one of the largest industrial sources of emissions, responsible for approximately 5% of global CO2. Once commercialized, this technology offers a much lower-CO2 emissions trajectory for the construction and power sectors across the globe while promoting environmentally sustainable growth.

The UK CCS Research Centre’s strategic mission is to help ensure that CCS plays an effective role in reducing net CO2 emissions while securing affordable and controllable electricity supplies, providing low carbon heat and maintaining competitive industries for the UK.

The Centre supports a community of over 1000 members, made up of world-leading academics, representatives from industry, and early career researchers. Facilitating the collaboration between academic CCS researchers and industry is vital to maximise the development real-world applications built upon research outputs.
