The United Kingdom’s Carbon Clean recently announced a strategic expansion into Canada to meet an increase in demand for its carbon-capture technology.
After three years of being “active” in the country, Carbon Clean is formalizing its footprint in the market with official headquarters.
“Recent efforts to incentivize Canadian investment in carbon capture, utilization, and storage have made the country an attractive market for industrial carbon capture projects,” stated chief executive Aniruddha Sharma.
The London-born clean-tech firm has selected Calgary for its Canadian headquarters, describing the region as an “epicentre for the latest actions around decarbonization,” citing initiatives such as the Alberta Carbon Capture Incentive Program announced in November.
“Increased urgency from Canadian policymakers and business leaders around decarbonizing hard-to-abate industries has spurred our entry in Calgary,” Sharma said, “and has triggered a significant number of high-level conversations with companies from a variety of sectors wanting to rapidly achieve net zero.”
Carbon Clean was founded in the UK in 2009 and last year expanded to the US with an office in Texas.
Canada, and Calgary specifically, was a natural evolution of Carbon Clean’s geographic expansion, according to Sharma.
“As North America continues to outpace many global regions, we look forward to ramping up our local supply chain and expanding our Canadian workforce as momentum around these projects and policies is sustained,” the CEO affirmed.
The company plans to grow its Canadian workforce over the course of 2024 to meet demand for CycloneCC, its modular clean-tech technology targeting industries such as oil & gas, cement, and steel.
