We are experts in removing excess CO2 and H2O from closed spaces to enable air recirculation, which helps reduce energy usage and increase comfort levels.
Our founders met at the European Space Agency (ESA) in 2008 where they were working as system engineers on the life-support project for the International Space Station, testing what would ultimately become Skytree’s technology.
Today Skytree is self-sustainable and generates (licensing) revenue through co-development projects on useful & scalable products for leading companies within industry. We are also supported by investment fund InvestInFuture.
Direct Air Capture
Skytree is part of the Direct Air Capture (DAC) industry, which represents a technological solution to climate change through the direct removal of CO2 from Earth’s atmosphere.
Technology & patents
Our CO2 re-capture process was originally developed by ESA to make longer space missions possible by extracting the CO2 exhaled by astronauts on board of spacecraft.
This technology was developed as part of a long-term project for the International Space Station and was launched in 1996 with a budget of over €70 million.
Currently Skytree owns 2 process patents that were granted in the period 2013-2015 and are based on in-house testing. As of 2016 Skytree has 2 additional patents pending.
