Founded in 2009, Carbon Engineering Ltd. (CE) is a Canadian-based clean energy company.
CE is leading the commercialization of groundbreaking Direct Air Capture technology that captures carbon dioxide (CO2) directly from the atmosphere so it can be permanently stored deep underground, or used to produce clean, affordable transportation fuels. From a pilot plant in Squamish, B.C., CE has been removing CO2 from the atmosphere since 2015 and converting it into fuels since 2017.
CE grew from academic work conducted on carbon management technologies by Professor David Keith’s research groups at the University of Calgary and Carnegie Mellon University.
CE is privately owned and is funded by investment or commitments from private investors and government agencies. CE’s investors include Bill Gates, Murray Edwards, Oxy Low Carbon Ventures, LLC, Chevron Technology Ventures, and BHP. CE has been well supported within the clean-tech innovation system and has led projects funded by top-tier government agencies in both Canada and the USA.
