RepAir, an innovator of an efficient Direct Air Capture (DAC) solution, and EnEarth, the specialist Carbon Storage & Environmental Services subsidiary of Energean, the leading independent gas-focused E&P company in the Greater Mediterranean region, today announced a landmark agreement using RepAir's DAC technology to capture CO2 and store it in the Prinos saline aquifer in Kavala, Greece. The project will begin operations in early 2026, storing the first kiloton of carbon dioxide removed. When fully developed by 2028, EnEarth's injection capacity in Prinos will be able to service up to 3 million tons of CO2 a year.

The partnership includes the installation of RepAir's carbon capture system on the premises of the onshore facility of Energean at Prinos. In parallel, carbon from point source emitters in the Mediterranean region will be transferred to the Prinos storage complex for safe and permanent storage.

Energean's Prinos storage project (Prinos CO2) has been slated to receive €150M in funding from the Greek government under the European Recovery and Resilience Facility and is included in the sixth Union list of European Projects of Common Interest. This CO2 storage project is an integral part of the Mediterranean Carbon Capture and Storage (CSS) Strategic Plan developed by France, Italy, and Greece, which aims to create the first commercial-scale CO2 storage hub in the Southeast Mediterranean.

RepAir offers a promising partnership perspective due to the economic viability of their DAC solution with levelized capture costs projected at $50 a ton at the gigaton scale, while other competitive solutions are at $200 a ton. RepAir's zero-heat technology is fully electric, operating at just 600kWh per ton of CO2 removed, without using liquids or solvents, and producing no waste or hazardous materials. The system is designed for gigaton deployment due to its mass manufacturable "StackDAC" modules.

"The partnership between Repair and EnEarth is a groundbreaking initiative aimed at transforming Northern Greece into a green hub for the Eastern Mediterranean. This collaboration marks the first step in establishing a Direct Air Capture and Storage (DACS) hub, setting a precedent for similar projects across the region. By repurposing existing infrastructure, the partnership introduces a novel approach to industrial environmental sustainability." said Nikolas Rigas, Head of Carbon Storage, EnEarth. "RepAir offers a most promising direct air capture solution, as well as a solution that can reach significant scale, in a short timeframe. The Prinos CO2 Storage project is strategically located to serve emitters of the region and will generate new green jobs and know-how, as part of a broader just industrial and energy transition. This operational transition will bring significant economic and environmental benefits to the community."

"This partnership is the strongest possible validation of our ability to provide an efficient and affordable, large-scale carbon dioxide removal solution, sending a clear message that we are the right choice to help companies bridge their emissions gap," said Amir Shiner, CEO of RepAir Carbon. "The synergy between project maturity, Energean's entrepreneurial spirit and the endorsement of the European and national authorities will enable a fast scale up, which is perfectly aligned with our vision."

In compliance with the EU CRCF Regulation and without impacting the access of industrial users to the Prinos CO2 Storage Project, the Direct Air Capture and Storage project aims at providing high-quality carbon credits to off-takers, supporting EU efforts to reduce CO2 emissions while aligning with evolving ESG standards to achieve climate goals. With its unparalleled capacity to capture significant volumes when fully developed at industrial scale CO2, the Direct Air Capture and Storage project paves the way for exponential growth spanning the megaton scale of carbon dioxide removals in the EU.
