Team CERT is proud to announce a partnership with CO2 Solutions, an innovator in the field of enzyme-enabled carbon capture. Alongside its entry in the competition, through which it will demonstrate a process of capture and reuse of CO2 into acetic acid, CO2 Solutions has also been authorized to partner with other contenders offering a CO2 reuse process only. These newly formed combined entries will propose the CO2 Solutions capture process with the reuse process of the partner company. The announced CO2 Solutions–CERT entry is an example of such a combination. CO2 Solutions and CERT would share equally any prize money that maybe awarded to this joint entry.
CO2 Solutions’ technology lowers the cost barrier to Carbon Capture, Sequestration and Utilization (CCSU), positioning it as a viable CO2 mitigation tool, as well as enabling industry to derive profitable new products from these emissions. CO2 Solutions has built an extensive patent portfolio covering the use of carbonic anhydrase, or analogues thereof, for the efficient post-combustion capture of carbon dioxide with low‐energy aqueous solvents.
