Soletair Power had the opportunity last week to present itself in the United States. CEO and co-founder Petri Laakso presented Soletair Power’s impressive journey and got to share all the cool stuff the carbon capture technology provider company has been up to. Considering the number of skyscrapers and commercial real estate in New York, Soletair Power showcased the building CO2 capture technology that has been successfully deployed in Germany, Finland, and the UAE.

Soletair Power has also participated in the two-day Global Direct Air Capture Conference at Columbia University. It was the first annual Global Direct Air Capture Conference and was organized by Direct Air Capture Coalition, RMI, Breakthrough Energy and Center on Global Energy Policy.
