Project Bison

Announcing Project Bison: a 5 megaton
DAC carbon removal project in Wyoming

Capture and storage operations to start in late 2023.

The first of its kind

Project Bison is leading a new era of large-scale atmospheric carbon removal projects.

First massively scalable deployment of DAC

Due to the modular architecture of our technology, the potential to develop extensive new renewable energy facilities (wind and solar) in the area, and the geologically scalable storage features of our site, Project Bison has no practical limits to scaling to megaton levels and beyond.

First to use Class VI wells for DAC CO2 storage ​

When atmospheric capture activity begins in late 2023, we expect that Project Bison will be the first DAC carbon removal project to use Class VI injection wells for permanent carbon dioxide storage in deep saline aquifers (pending regulatory approval).  

Largest single DAC
project in the world

Project Bison starts small, but grows fast. By 2030, Project Bison is scheduled to have rolled-out five megatons of annual capture and storage capacity. At that point, we expect it will be the largest single atmospheric carbon removal project in the world. 

How Project Bison generates carbon removal credits

Project Bison generates carbon removal credits by capturing CO2 from the atmosphere and permanently storing it underground.

Project Bison uses CarbonCapture's low-cost, modular direct air capture (DAC) systems to filter CO2 out of the air. Frontier Carbon Solutions then gathers and injects that CO2 into deep saline aquifers via Class VI injection wells, a regulatory designation established by the EPA and managed by the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality.

Once generated, Project Bison's carbon removal credits are sold to organizations with net zero goals who seek to offset their unavoidable emissions.

Why purchase our DAC carbon removal credits?

They're considered the gold standard for a reason. Four, actually.

They're fully additional

We only generate carbon removal credits because clients buy them. Without buyers, they wouldn't otherwise exist

It's not an estimate

The exact amount of CO2 our DAC systems capture is precisely metered and measured

We're an open book

For each carbon removal credit we deliver, we provide a complete third-party verification report 

It's buried forever

The CO2 we capture is securely locked away for more than 1,000 years in deep saline aquifers via Class VI injection wells
