Direct Air Capture – Major Investment by Optimus

Optimus are delighted to be part of two independent consortia that have been selected by BEIS to develop technologies that will recover Carbon Dioxide directly from the atmosphere. This technology will be a piece in the country's armoury that will allow us to be carbon neutral by 2050 as enshrined in UK law.

Optimus will support the projects; Project DRIVE and SMART-DAC, with more than 3000 engineering and design hours and are excited to be contributing to the development of these technologies as part of our commitment on the drive towards net-zero. Another step on our journey to balancing our predominant market of upstream Oil & Gas with other channels as we head toward the energy transition.
