The Carbon Cleanup Industry Is Growing in Louisiana

Brian Kahn of Bloomberg reports on a direct air capture plant going live in Louisiana.

The C3 Take
  • Heirloom Carbon has announced plans to build a direct air capture (DAC) facility near Shreveport, Louisiana.
  • This facility will capture 17,000 tons of atmospheric CO2 annually and is expected to come online in 2026.
  • The plant will be near another one of Heirloom’s plant DAC facility which was funded by the Department of Energy

“The humid climate is also a boon for Heirloom’s technology, which relies on heating limestone to remove CO2, according to Alexa Dennett, Heirloom’s head of marketing and communications. The smaller-scale plant will allow the company to test the kilns it uses as part of its system, Dennett added.”
