Solid sorbent technology
DAC is a carbon dioxide removal (CDR) technology that concentrates CO2 found in the ambient air rather than a large point source, thereby addressing both current and legacy emissions. In sorbent-based DAC systems, solid sorbent filters chemically bind with CO2. Heat applied to the filters in a vacuum then causes the release of concentrated CO2, which is captured for storage or use.
Low-grade waste heat as primary energy source
Aerbon DAC harnesses low-grade waste heat to power the DAC process. Aerbon can use 80% of the total energy demand from waste heat and the remainder comes from electricity.
Feedstock to industrial processes and carbon offsets
The captured CO2 is planned to be sold both as a feedstock into industrial processes and to be sequestered in the sea bed and sold as carbon offsets.
