Carbon Capture Technology

Atoco is the leading supplier of solid-state carbon capture modules developed to counter climate change.

Our Technology

Our solid-state carbon capture modules efficiently capture and remove CO2 directly from air (Direct Air Capture) and from industrial emissions (Post-Combustion Carbon Capture), providing companies in heavy-emitting and hard-to-decarbonize industries with a scalable and efficient solution, whereby they can safely store or utilize captured carbon dioxide (CO2).


The novel solid-state CO2 adsorbent materials used in the modules are synthesized based on latest breakthroughs in reticular chemistry, ultimately achieving a delicate balance, through atomically precise design, between the CO2 selectivity of the material and the strength of bonding between CO2 molecules and the adsorbent material.

We achieved a delicate balance such that the strength of bonding between CO2 molecules and the adsorbent material is just strong enough to maintain the CO2 molecules inside the adsorbent material, but not strong enough to require a lot of energy to release the CO2 molecules out of the adsorbent material.


Our reticular chemistry-based modules for carbon capture are characterized by several advantages.

The modules are engineered to optimize the kinetics of CO2 adsorption and desorption while at the same time minimize energy consumption of the overall CO2 capture and separation process.

Our novel solid-state CO2 adsorbents are processed and integrated into the modules to achieve the highest levels of durability and resilience, with the objective of sustaining hundreds of thousands of CO2 capture and separation cycles.

The modules are engineered to optimize the system-level weight/volume performance in terms of CO2 capture efficiency. 


Carbon Capture


The adsorbent materials used in our modules display high CO2 capture capacities and high selectivity for CO2 in carbon capture applications. With a high surface area, high kinetics, and tunable properties, our reticular materials are particularly effective at removing CO2 from flue gas streams and atmospheric air.


The adsorbent materials used in our modules have high thermal stability, reducing regeneration energy requirements and increasing overall efficiency. This reduces their environmental impact. Their ability to be regenerated and reused multiple times strengthens their eco-resilience.


The adsorbent materials used in our modules have been engineered to perform well under a wide range of operating conditions, including high temperatures and moisture exposure. Because of their stability, these materials are cost-effective for industrial-scale carbon capture applications due to their long-term performance and durability.

Flexibility and Scalability

The adsorbent materials used in our modules can be scaled up for industrial production, making them suitable for large-scale carbon capture projects. Our carbon capture modules can be built into new equipment or integrated and refurbished into existing solutions. In addition, the tailored properties of our reticular materials enable them to be customized to meet specific processes and applications, allowing them to be adapted to a variety of carbon capture solutions. We also provide flexibility through the regeneration and reuse of our solid-state adsorbents.

Robustness and Stability

The adsorbent materials used in our carbon capture modules are stable against the harmful gases that are commonly present in post combustion flue gas, like NOx, SOx and H2S gases.
