CarbonCapture puts Arizona at the forefront of climate tech industry
The Greater Phoenix Economic Council (GPEC) recognized that CarbonCapture, a leading climate tech company that designs and builds machines that remove carbon dioxide directly from the atmosphere, has partnered with Arizona State University to design a regional direct air capture (DAC) hub under an initiative supported by the Department of Energy and is assessing sites around Greater Phoenix for further investment. This decision highlights the alignment of CarbonCapture’s ambitions with the region’s vision to develop “The New Photon Economy,” positioning Arizona at the forefront of the rapidly emerging climate tech industry.
“Arizona is an ideal place for a direct air capture company to deploy,” said Adrian Corless, CarbonCapture CEO and CTO. “With plentiful renewable energy resources, a highly educated workforce, and world-class academic institutions, it’s an obvious choice. In addition to our partnership with ASU, we’re evaluating multiple manufacturing sites in and around Greater Phoenix that would allow us to leverage the region’s first-class industrial infrastructure.”
