Carbon Upcycling Technologies (CUT) has devised a process to produce advanced solid material additives from CO2 emissions and affordable solid feedstock. Through a proprietary, patent-pending technology, CUT can chemically adsorb CO2 emissions into exfoliated fly ash to produce enhanced fly ash (EFA). Per tonne of EFA, CUT’s technology can sequester between 50 to 250 kilograms of CO2 from industrial flue gas.
CUT is an NRG COSIA Carbon X-Prize finalist and is keen to demonstrate its technology at Svante’s Project CO2MENT, the carbon capture, utilization, and storage demonstration project at Lafarge Canada’s cement plant in Richmond, BC, Canada.
Since 2001, Chrysalix Venture Capital, headquartered in Vancouver, BC, Canada, is one of the longest standing pure-play industrial innovation and alternative energy venture capital firms globally. The firm provides early-stage financing, hands-on assistance, and strategic connections to innovative companies confronting the world’s most important issues in energy and sustainability.
In 2014, Chrysalix became a lead-investor in the Series B financing round.
Dimensional Energy transforms carbon dioxide into sustainable aviation fuel.
Dimensional Energy, Svante, and Lafarge Canada are collaborating on a project to capture CO2 from a Lafarge Canada cement plant in Richmond, BC, Canada. Using the CO2 captured by Svante’s technology on the site site, Dimensional Energy plans to create sustainable aviation fuel.
Emissions Reduction Alberta (ERA) is the Government of Alberta’s primary green technology investment tool. It was formerly known as CCEMC prior to 2016. It allows the province to fully leverage the capacity of the innovation system in support of innovative technologies that will help Alberta be a leader in addressing climate change. ERA provides non-dilutive funding that helps companies attract significant capital more quickly.
In 2012, Svante and CCEMC signed a contribution agreement to provide match funds from 2012 to 2019 for the development and demonstration of Svante carbon capture technology from natural gas boiler flue gas at a scale up to 30 TPD.
In July 2022, ERA announced they would be investing in over $40 million CAD in 11 projects focused on advancing Alberta’s global leadership in carbon capture utilization and sequestration (CCUS). If successful, these projects could lead to over $20 billion in capital expenditures, create thousands of jobs, and reduce about 24 million tonnes of emissions annually—this is the equivalent of reducing Alberta’s annual industrial emissions by almost 10 percent.
Suncor Energy Services Inc. received $950,000 CAD from ERA to implement Svante’s carbon capture process for its fluid catalytic cracker, a project with a total cost of $9.9 million USD.
Export Development Canada is Canada’s export credit agency and a state-owned enterprise wholly owned by the Government of Canada. Its mandate is to support and develop trade between Canada and other countries, and help Canada’s competitiveness in the international marketplace

Government of Canada – Strategic Innovation Fund allocates repayable and non-repayable contributions to firms of all sizes across all of Canada’s industrial and technology sectors. The program has a budget of $1.26 billion over five years. It consolidates and simplifies the Strategic Aerospace and Defence Initiative, Technology Demonstration Program, Automotive Innovation Fund and Automotive Supplier Innovation Program.
The Strategic Innovation Fund’s objective is to spur innovation for a better Canada. Specifically, it serves to simplify application processes, accelerate processing, and provide assistance that is more responsive and focused on results.
In July, 2021, the Government of Canada made a CDN$25 million investment to support the industrialization and commercialization of its novel low-cost carbon capture technology within the North American market
The National Research Council-Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP) is Canada’s premier innovation assistance program for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). It is a vital component of the NRC, a cornerstone in Canada’s innovation system, regarded world-wide as one of the best programs of its kind.
IRAP was the first government funding organization to support Svante back in 2009. Its support helped the company through challenging times in the market when investment in clean technology was not readily available and continues to play an important role in the organization’s progress.
OTS is a premier provider of Pre-Commissioning, Commissioning and Start-Up and Operations and Maintenance services for the energy, mining and utility sectors.

in 2021, Svante, Enbridge, Cross River Infrastructure Partners LLC, and OTS entered into a commercial
Memorandum of Understanding that established Cross Carbon Ventures (CCV), an independent carbon
capture development partnership. CCV explores commercial opportunities in North America to
develop, build, own and operate carbon capture projects for carbon intensive industries seeking to
decarbonize their operations.

The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) is a U.S. national laboratory under the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). NETL focuses on applied research for the clean production and use of domestic energy resources.
In 2015, Svante as sub-recipient with NRG Energy Inc. received a $1.1 MM USD Phase 1 award under DE-FOA-0001190 to perform front engineering and design with respect to a large pilot scale carbon capture facility utilizing rapid cycle TSA technology.
Multiple projects, advancing with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s National Energy Laboratory (NETL) oversight and financial assistance, have been launched by Svante to evaluate our nano-filter technology and our use as a lower-cost, energy-efficient process for carbon capture applications.
In September 2020, NETL, through industry partner Electricore Inc., awarded $1.5 million for cost-shared development to support initial engineering analysis for CO2MENT, a first-of-its-kind commercial project to capture up to 1.5 million tonnes of CO2 per year at the Holcim Cement Plant in Florence, Colorado.
NETL also awarded $13 million for cost-shared development to support design, construction and operation of a second-of-its-kind engineering-scale (25 tonnes per day) carbon capture plant at Chevron’s Kern River oil field in California’s San Joaquin Valley.
Both projects are using the transformational CALF-20 MOF sorbent material, which is being field tested (1 tonne per day CO
2 capture) at Lafarge-Holcim’s CO2MENT Richmond Project based at a cement plant in British Columbia, Canada.
Svante’s partnership with NETL also is exploring efforts to decarbonize the production of hydrogen (H2) from natural gas through a process called steam methane reforming, which is widely viewed as the lowest-cost, near-term solution to manufacture H2 for use as a clean fuel in a variety of sectors, including transportation.
NETL awarded nearly $1.5 million in October 2021 to complete an initial engineering design study to use Svante solid sorbent post-combustion CO2 capture technology at the Linde Steam Methane Reforming Hydrogen Pla
