Greenlyte and Cella partner up for carbon sequestration in Kenya

DAC-2-E-Methane: Realizing Carbon Capture Utilization for Energy Storage & Transportation

Greenlyte Carbon Technologies, the Institute of Energy and Environmental Process Engineering (LEE), University of Duisburg-Essen, the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Center (ZBT) and the Chair of Technical Thermodynamics (LTT), RWTH Aachen have joined forces to research the coupling of a Direct Air Capture (DAC) plant with a catalytic methane synthesis.

Timeline: Q2 2024 - Q2 2027

Essen, 15/01/2024. Today we’re thrilled to announce a partnership with US-based carbon storage company Cella. Cella’s technology injects captured atmospheric CO2 into volcanic rocks, where mineralization permanently locks it underground to create negative emissions.Under our agreement, we will be delivering and installing a DAC Unit at Cella’s Kenya demo project, with initial testing to start later this year with the first tons in CO2 bottles.
