Lessons from leaders: Canada-based Svante, a Global Cleantech 100 returnee previously known as Inventys, has developed technology for capturing CO2 directly from industrial sources, and is getting early-stage traction. In January 2020, the company announced a joint study with LafargeHolcim, Oxy Low Carbon Ventures and Total. The study aims to assess the viability and design of a commercial-scale carbon-capture facility at the Holcim Portland Cement Plant in Florence, Colorado. In February 2020, Chevron commissioned a study with Svante to evaluate the feasibility and design of a 10,000 ton-per-year carbon capture unit in one of Chevron’s California facilities.
