Frontier signs $20M offtake agreement with Carbon Capture Inc.

Nov 16 2023

Frontier facilitates one of the largest carbon removal purchases to date on behalf of multiple buyers including Stripe, Alphabet, Shopify, Meta, JPMorgan Chase, and McKinsey Sustainability.

Collectively, these buyers will pay CarbonCapture $20 million to permanently remove 45,500 tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by 2030.

“We're extremely pleased to be supplying Frontier and its members with high-quality DAC carbon removal,” said Adrian Corless, CEO of CarbonCapture Inc. “Large offtake agreements like this are critical to us because they demonstrate commercial viability and unlock a path to scale. We highly value Frontier's confidence in our technology and team, particularly as we emerge from the lab and begin deployment.”

CarbonCapture's DAC machines use solid sorbents that regenerate at relatively low temperatures. Since the choice of sorbent plays a pivotal role in influencing both capital expenditures and energy requirements, the company has developed a DAC platform based on a modular open systems architecture that enables the integration of next-generation sorbents. This strategy allows CarbonCapture to drive down costs by upgrading sorbents in existing units, eliminating the need to construct entirely new facilities in order to leverage the latest sorbent breakthroughs.

“Getting DAC to gigaton scale requires finding innovative ways to quickly drive down costs,” said Hannah Bebbington, Strategy Lead, Frontier. “CarbonCapture is doing that by cultivating a pipeline of innovative sorbents and building a modular and upgradeable capture system that allows them to swap in best-in-class sorbents as they become available.”
