Inventys is a progressive carbontech company with a vision to be a global leader in building a CO₂ marketplace.

By developing small modular plants that capture and store between 30-600 tonnes of CO₂ per day, Inventys can match manmade sources of CO₂ with CO₂-to-value opportunities.

This business model, which leverages Inventys’ breakthrough next-generation carbon capture technology, will enable the gigatonne scale requirement by:

  • Enabling a mass market for bulk distributed CO₂ supply
  • Revolutionizing the management of carbon emissions, and
  • Responding to climate change.

By building a market from the bottom up, overall demand for CO₂ will be stimulated.

Inventys is focused on decarbonizing:

  • Industrial process
  • Hydrogen plants
  • Gas power plants

Inventys is currently building a 30-tonne per day CO₂capture plant with Husky Energy in Saskatchewan, Canada. It will be operational in 2019.

The company, which is headquartered in Vancouver, BC, Canada, is also expanding its manufacturing capabilities to support its go-to-market strategy in 2020.
