About Carbon Iceland
After two years of preparation and planning, Carbon Iceland ehf. was formed in January 2020.
Our goal is to capture 1.0 million tonnes of CO2 using Direct Air Capture (DAC) technology developed and applied by our partner, the Canadian firm Carbon Engineering. Additionally, Carbon Iceland will capture CO2 from point source (flue gases) from large plants emitting large quantities of CO2.
The location of our first DAC plant will be at the eco-industrial park at Bakki, near Húsavík in North Iceland.
Carbon Iceland’s operations will use renewable energy sources to capture CO2 and to produce environmentally friendly products, such as green eFuel for ships and aviation and other types of transportation. Also, Carbon Iceland will produce green CO2 for food enrichment and the beverage industry. Thus the operations of Carbon Iceland will create no pollution and no emissions.
The total capturing plan for Carbon Iceland is 1-2 millions of CO2 on a yearly basis. This will be used to produce several hundreds of thousands of tons of both green eFuel and green CO2.
