Deep Sky to Deploy DAC Unit from Skytree in Canada

Published on 
April 4, 2024

Deep Sky, a Montreal-based carbon removal project developer, and Skytree have partnered to deploy carbon removal technology in Canada. As part of its partnership with Deep Sky, Skytree will deliver and install a modular DAC Air Processing Unit (APU), called Skytree Stratus, at Deep Sky Labs. 

As the world's first IP agnostic project developer of CDR projects aiming to remove gigatons of CO2 from the atmosphere, Deep Sky will operate Skytree’s APU in its Labs innovation center. The system will be installed in Canada in 2024, leveraging the region's renewable hydroelectric energy. The partners will also explore scaling up to a Skytree Stratus DAC hub as part of the evaluation phase at Deep Sky Labs. A Skytree DAC Hub consists of multiple Stratus units, each with a capacity of 900 tonnes per year and can be installed to accommodate any COsite capacity requirement. Skytree’s Stratus DAC system has a small carbon footprint and minimal energy consumption, a characteristic Deep Sky prioritizes in each of its partners. Through the company’s Uptime Assurance program, Skytree guarantees high uptime, monitors and measures CO2 generation, and conducts all preventive and corrective maintenance to ensure uninterrupted operations.  

Once in operation, the partners will monitor the performance of the APU at Deep Sky Labs. Data will be collected on the performance of the unit in terms of carbon dioxide removal (CDR), energy consumption, temperature, humidity and more. Together, the partners aim to validate the technology for commercial deployment in Canada as part of Deep Sky's mission to develop Canada into a world-leading hub for carbon removal. 

“As we continue to source the world’s best DAC technologies from around the world, we’re thrilled to welcome Skytree to Deep Sky Labs,” said Damien Steel, Deep Sky CEO. “A product of the European Space Agency, Skytree has developed a cost effective and energy efficient DAC unit over its decade in business. Skytree agrees that there’s no net zero without carbon removals, and we’re proud to deploy their tech and contribute to a cleaner, greener future.”

“We are extremely pleased to partner with Deep Sky. This is a significant milestone for us in North America, and kicks off Skytree’s launch into Canada. Our partnership will give us yet another opportunity to demonstrate the value of our Stratus DAC system and Skytree Cloud, which remotely monitors and maintains Stratus units in the field. Deep Sky has quickly become a leading global innovator in the sector, and our participation in their CDR project is an exciting step forward,” said Rob van Straten, Skytree CEO.

Together, Deep Sky and Skytree are committed to developing and deploying cutting-edge carbon dioxide removal (CDR) technologies. High-quality CDR is essential for achieving net zero emissions goals and mitigating the impacts of climate change. 

Deep Sky is working to build large-scale carbon removal and storage infrastructure in Canada. As a project developer, the company is bringing together the most promising carbon dioxide removal and sequestration technologies to commercialize solutions at scale.
