Munters, a leading provider of industrial climate solutions, is also announced to be investing EUR 2 million in the private placement. Primary insiders in the company have collectively pre-committed to subscribe for approximately NOK 3 million (EUR 260,000) in the equity issue.

Apart from taking a stake in the company, Munters has entered into a new collaboration with Capsol that will aim to further enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of Capsol’s proprietary technology. 

As an expert providing advanced solutions within packed towers, mist elimination, and dehumidifying technologies, Munters will contribute to Capsol’s R&D efforts to engineer and test state-of-the-art packed towers that will be optimized for its carbon capture process to further enhance performance while reducing energy consumption and operational costs. 

“Munters is a world-leading provider of essential components for our carbon capture plants. This collaboration is set to enhance our offerings, providing our clients with superior carbon capture solutions. Together, we aim to accelerate the global transition to a carbon-negative future. Munters’ long-standing history of innovation and industry leadership makes them the ideal partner for us,” explained Jan Kielland, CEO of Capsol Technologies.

Another announcement also made the headlines – the public company published its four quarter 2023 financial results that showed impressive accelerated growth of revenues and the sales pipeline. The 2023 revenues came at NOK 35.8 million which is 300% higher compared to 2022. The growth is driven mainly by CapsolGo® demonstration campaigns and paid engineering studies. The sales pipeline by the end of the quarter totaled 55 million tonnes of CO2 captured per year. Its pipeline of mature carbon capture projects also rose from 2.6 to 11.9 million tonnes of CO2 throughout 2023.

Looking into 2024, the company’s main focus is on expanding in North America, increasing CapsolGo® campaigns, fast-tracking development of CapsolGT® and strengthening its partner network.

Its long-term goal is to establish itself in the top three positions for carbon capture technology in cement, energy recovery, biomass and gas turbines, targeting a market share of 5-10% by 2030.
