For our flagship plant Orca, the world's largest direct air capture and storage plant, we have joined forces with the Icelandic company Carbfix. Carbfix has a strong scientific backbone and is one of the world's experts in rapid underground mineralization of carbon dioxide.
They provide a natural and permanent storage solution by turning CO2 into stone underground in less than two years. The technology provides a complete carbon capture and injection solution, where CO2 dissolved in water – a sparkling water of sorts – is injected into the subsurface where it reacts with favourable rock formations to form solid carbonate minerals via natural processes. For the Carbfix technology to work, one needs three ingredients: favourable rocks, water, and a source of carbon dioxide. Head to the Carbfix website for more information on the Carbfix method.
