Union and Climeworks are joining forces in CAPDrinks project

UntitledFunded by the Eurostars programme a project between Swiss company Climeworks and Danish Union Engineering is taking shape. The objective of the proposed project is to develop a standardized, competitive, low cost, modular, standalone, and onsite plant for delivery of beverage grade CO2 to bottling companies.

The CO2 stems majorly from atmospheric air and is in a first step concentrated to 99.9% by a Climeworks direct air capture (“DAC”) plant.

In a second step CO2 is purified and liquefied (“conditioning”) to achieve beverage grade CO2 purity by Union technology.

Climeworks provides solutions for efficiently capturing CO2 out of ambient air and hence offer a competitive and environmentally friendly CO2 supply to the customers. The upcycled CO2 can be used in the food and beverage industry, as a feedstock for production of various chemicals as well as it enables the production of carbon-neutral renewable fuels allowing for efficient storage of renewable energies.

Union Engineering is a world-class engineering company, specialized in sustainable technologies for capturing, recovering and purification of carbon dioxide. Main activities are engineering, procurement, construction and maintenance of modular and individually designed CO2 plants.

The joint project started March 2016 with a duration of 18 months. The project budget is €1,070,580.
