GE, Svante Collaborate on Carbon-Capture Technology

Published on: 

The two companies are developing solid sorbent-based solutions for emissions reduction.

GE Gas Power, a division of GE Vernova, and Vancouver-based Svante have announced a joint development agreement to develop and assess solid sorbent-based carbon capture technology for natural gas power generation applications.

Svante provides solid sorbent-based carbon-capture and removal solutions. The company’s carbon-capture filters utilize solid adsorbents, such as metal-organic frameworks, coated onto thin sheets of laminate that are stacked together. This technology can be employed for point-source post-combustion carbon capture, where filters remove CO2 from industrial flue gas.


The collaboration between GE Gas Power and Svante aims to further develop and commercialize solid sorbent technologies for decarbonizing natural gas-fired turbines in a cost-effective and environmentally responsible manner, according to Claude Letourneau, President and CEO of Svante.
