Wärtsilä invests in direct air capture technologies


Wärtsilä has invested €1m in Soletair Power Oy, a Finnish CO2 direct air capture technology company that has developed a breakthrough solution for capturing CO2 from air in buildings that can be used when creating synthetic renewable fuel.

The technology company confirmed its investment earlier this week (2nd March) as part of an effort to strengthen its commitment to decarbonisation technology as Europe strives to meet ambitious net-zero goals.

Further to enhancing Wärtsilä’s capabilities, the investment also enables Soletair Power to further its global sales efforts and to scale up the manufacturing of its CO2 capture solution for building ventilation.

Commenting on the investment, Matti Rautkivi, Director, New Business at Wärtsilä Energy, said, “One of the cornerstones of Wärtsilä’s Smart Energy vision is to collaborate with strategic partners, such as cutting-edge technology companies, research institutes and start-ups, to accelerate innovation and promote the commercialisation of new and exciting solutions.”
