About Svante & its New HQ in Burnaby, BC:

Svante offers companies in hard-to-abate industries like cement, lime, hydrogen, and pulp & paper a commercially viable way to capture carbon or remove CO2 from the atmosphere using a cutting-edge solid sorbent filter technology. Its new 141,289 sq. ft. facility will bring together all of Svante’s departments under one roof, including R&D, Product Development, Manufacturing, and Corporate Services, which are currently divided among three offices and remote work locations. This new Centre of Excellence for Carbon Capture and Removal will enable Svante to expand its commercial filter manufacturing facilities to deliver filter modules capable of removing 10 million tonnes of COper year, which is equivalent to planting approximately 49,605,258 trees grown for ten years or taking 646,408 gasoline-powered cars driven for one year off the road (Source: US EPAs Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator).
