Mithun Assists Heirloom with New Direct Air Capture facilities in Louisiana

Date Posted: 06.27.2024

Mithun is honored to support Heirloom in their efforts to bring new Direct Air Capture (DAC) facilities to Northwest Louisiana. The first facility at the Port of Caddo-Bossier in Shreveport will begin construction later this year. When operational in 2026, it will remove around 17,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) annually.

“We couldn’t be more excited to be building these new facilities in Northwest Louisiana,” said Shashank Samala, CEO of Heirloom. “These investments not only bring meaningful economic activity and job creation to the region, but also help to cement Louisiana as a leader in this new energy economy and further America’s leadership on the global stage.”

Mithun partner Jason Steiner said, “This is a generational opportunity for transformative positive change. In our collaboration with Heirloom we share a profound alignment of climate values and a vision for a sustainable, net-zero future. We are thrilled to contribute our integrated design knowledge to advance Heirloom’s DAC facilities, harnessing the natural power of limestone to permanently remove carbon dioxide from the air.”

Mithun is providing architecture, landscape architecture and interior design services for this DAC facility, the firm’s second for Heirloom. Additional design team members include PAE, MEPF; KPFF Consulting Engineers, structural; and Moffatt & Nichol, civil.

With this project, Heirloom is continuing its rapid progress in building one of the world’s most affordable carbon removal solutions with the ability to scale to eliminate billions of tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere. Learn more via Heirloom.
