CARBON CAPTURE: CO2 Solutions, Hatch agree to collaborate

QUEBEC CITY and MISSISSAUGA, Ont. – On March 23, 2017, CO2Solutions and Hatch Ltd. jointly announced a collaborative agreement between the two companies. They will collaborate on delivering carbon capture systems integrating COSolutions’ low cost, environmentally benign, enzymatic technology in large industrial environments. Within these projects, COSolutions will license its proprietary technology and Hatch will provide its globally renowned engineering and project delivery expertise.

In conjunction with this agreement, Hatch announced that it is the provider of engineering services to the previously announced $15 million Valorisation Carbone Québec (VCQ) project. The objective of the VCQ project, which is being led by CO2Solutions, is to demonstrate COcapture and beneficial reuse at large scale in an industrial facility, and to support the development of second generation reuse applications. This project will centre on COSolutions enzymatic capture technology and draw on the most promising reuse applications and development efforts worldwide. Hatch will play a key role in enabling CO2 Solutions to reach the objectives of the VCQ project and in jointly delivering demonstrated capture and reuse solutions.

“At Hatch, we recognize that sustainability requires the optimization of environmental, social and economic outcomes and is at the core of how Hatch delivers value to our clients as a socially responsible company. This collaboration with COSolutions supports the Hatch goal to plan, design and implement projects with our clients that focus on sustainable value creation,” said Hatch’s CEO, John Bianchini.
