ReCarbn aims to accelerate the development of Direct Air Capture with a potential to remove gigatons of CO₂ from the atmosphere.
ReCarbn technology uses a circulating sorbent mechanism, reducing 30% of the energy consumption needed for the technology, compared to other solutions in the market.
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.
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.
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.
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.
