How do we address the CO2 emissions from industrial plants while we achieve the road to net-zero by 2050?

By 2050, industrial point source plants will emit 8 billion tons of CO2 per year.
CarbonFree has a solution to address this challenge.

SkyCycle™: A complete carbon-capture solution


U.S. Steel and CarbonFree Sign Definitive Agreement to Capture Carbon Dioxide Emissions at One of the Largest North American Integrated Steel Mills.

The Process

Built on our established chemistry, SkyCycle™ captures carbon emissions from hard-to-abate industrial sources before they enter the atmosphere and converts them into a carbon-neutral version of calcium carbonate, essential to the creation of paper and plastics, building materials, paint, and personal care products.

  • We capture emissions from an external, stationary point source.
  • We then decarbonize and mineralize the CO2 using our SkyCycle™ process.
  • Creating marketable, non-hazardous products or permanently storable materials.
  • Resulting in significant carbon value.

CarbonFree-produced calcium carbonate made from captured carbon dioxide can help decarbonize global supply chains by enabling manufacturers to reduce Scope 3 emissions, or it can be stored in an environmentally conscious way without the need for pipelines or disposal wells.

The Benefit

Address hard-to-abate CO2 emissions and reach sustainability goals

As carbon capture continues to be recognized as an indispensable solution on the path to carbon neutrality for carbon-intensive industries, we help companies achieve their decarbonization goals while providing needed economic and environmental benefits.

Our technology is highly scalable and can be applied to a wide range of industrial host sites. The decentralized solution minimizes the need for infrastructure, and can be implemented at existing manufacturing facilities.

The Possibilities

CarbonFree’s SkyCycle™ technology will capture and mineralize up to 50,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually at U.S. Steel’s facility in Gary, Indiana, to convert emissions into specialty grade, carbon-neutral calcium carbonate. This groundbreaking project will be the first commercial-scale carbon capture utilization plant at a steel plant in North America, paving the way for a greener, more sustainable future in steel manufacturing.
