Svante and BASF enter agreement

Svante has entered into an arm's length commercial supply agreement with BASF to scale up its proprietary sorbent material, Calgary Framework 20 (CALF-20), used in Svante’s carbon capture process.

This metal-organic framework (MOF) sorbent can capture up to 95% of carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted from industrial sources, such as cement and blue hydrogen plants, using rapid solid adsorption and low-pressure steam.

Svante has pioneered carbon capture and removal technology using structured adsorbent beds, known as 'filters'. This commercial supply agreement with BASF will unlock the next phase of Svante’s growth, scaling carbon capture filter manufacturing capacity and implementing hundreds of large-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) facilities by 2030.

Svante’s unique modular and environmentally responsible solid sorbent technology is designed to capture CO2 from industrial flue gas. It then concentrates it into a high purity 95% pipeline-grade CO2 and releases it for safe storage or further industrial use. Its unique approach is tailored specifically to the challenges of separating CO2 from nitrogen in diluted flue gas, which is typically emitted in large volumes at low pressures and in dilute concentrations. Svante’s technology will play a key role in decarbonising industrial activity in diverse fields including hydrogen, pulp and paper, cement, steel, aluminium, and chemicals.

Svante and BASF have been working collaboratively for the last two years to scale up CALF-20, which acts as a sponge for adsorbing CO2.
