Alcoa and Codexis announce carbon-capture project

Aluminium producer Alcoa has announced a pilot program, in collaboration with Codexis and C2O Solution, focused on carbon-capture technology designed to sequester industrial carbon emissions, neutralising the material to create a commercially viable product.

The project will be funded by Alcoa along with approximately $13.5m (£8.3m) in funding from the US Department of Energy (DOE) received from an award with the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), made available by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
