Qaptis captures its first CO2 molecules!

Written on June 6, 2023

Our first prototype is nearly complete, marking a key milestone in our technical advancement!

This exciting achievement serves as proof-of-concept, validating our transition from the lab to an industrial setting and advanced research facility. But we’re not done yet. We’re now focusing on optimization tests to improve capture efficiency, connecting it to a stationary truck and evaluating engine speed’s impact on our capture rate.

Our mobile carbon capture technology represents a significant breakthrough in the fight against climate change. By capturing carbon emissions at the source, we have the potential to significantly reduce carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere, contributing to a healthier, more sustainable future for all.

A special shoutout to our dedicated team and our amazing partners for their commitment:
