A Norwegian company that removes harmful carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the atmosphere has received NOK 36.3m ($3.5m) in governmental backing to develop an industrial-scale pilot.

Obtained via an innovation grant from the Norwegian governmental body Enova, the backing will fund what will be the first-ever direct air capture (DAC) pilot at Norway’s Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM).

To be developed by Removr, the plant will capture 300 tonnes of CO2 annually from 2024 and will be followed by the company’s first commercial pilot with a capacity of 2,000 tonnes per year in 2025.
