Reversing global warming using Direct Air Capture at scale

ReCarbn aims to accelerate the development of Direct Air Capture with a potential to remove gigatons of CO₂ from the atmosphere. 


Direct air capture as a solution for global warming

Draw in air

Large fans draw in air from the atmosphere. This can be done anywhere, as long as electricity or heat is readily available.​

Filter CO₂

Filters containing engineered chemicals (sorbents), concentrate CO₂ from the air. The filter material is heated to release the captured CO₂.


Concentrated CO₂ is stored or transformed into other goods. Filtered CO₂-free air is released into the atmosphere.

Our innovation

ReCarbn technology uses a circulating sorbent mechanism, reducing 30% of the energy consumption needed for the technology, compared to other solutions in the market.

In practice

ReCarbn will first supply indoor farmers with circular CO₂ and further develop technology for larger scale future industries, such as carbon capture and storage, building materials and synthetic fuels. 


Need for sustainable CO₂ supply

Indoor farmers need a stable CO₂ supply for the growth of their products. Traditionally, the sector has to burn natural gas to obtain CO₂. With the rise of renewables, the future CO₂ supply from burning natural gas is uncertain. 


Easily integrated with existing infrastructure


Enabling smart CO₂ production

An indoor farmer can arrange their CO₂ production smartly. For example, if more renewable energy (geothermal, solar, wind) is available than is requested, you can choose to switch on the DAC installation to store the CO₂ in a buffer for later use.

Meet The Team

Our team combines years of research in carbon capturing technology and is complemented with commercial business and financial backgrounds. The ReCarbn technology is developed at the University of Twente since 2012, by Professor Wim Brilman, an academic expert and thought leader in the field.

One of the biggest challenges in changing to renewables is finding a stable CO₂ supply.
