Carbon Capture Project Redefines Clean Technology SaskEnergy and the Regina Airport Authority (RAA) are piloting the use of a CarbinX small-scale carbon capture device that could reduce GHG emissions from the main heating system at the Regina International Airport by about 20 per cent. Manufactured by Calgary- based CleanO2, the CarbinX device is installed in the airport’s mechanical room and captures a portion of the carbon dioxide emissions from the building’s boiler heating system, converting it into non-toxic pearl ash (potassium carbonate). CleanO2 collects the pearl ash and incorporates it into a line of carbon-capture soaps and other cleaning products, where it will be permanently sequestered. The carbon-capture reaction of the CarbinX device releases heat that is also captured and used to preheat water in the airport’s heating equipment, which further reduces emissions through reduced natural gas usage and saves the RAA money on monthly heating costs. SaskEnergy provided $40,000 for the cost and delivery of the unit and will receive annual deliveries of carbon soap, which will be given out at tradeshows and donated to community organizations across the province.
