The CO2 capture company closed its Series D equity financing round, which was led by Temasek and also included investors like the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative and Chevron.

Svante is one of the most well-funded CO2 capture startups to have emerged in recent years, and the newly raised funds are an important step forward for the company – Svante will be the first to deploy solid sorbents for CO2 capture at scale, and the cement project will thus serve as commercial validation of its technology.
