Reliably sequesters carbon dioxide in a stable, solid mineral (for more than 100 years).
IMPROVES HEALTH & SAFETY
Puts accumulated toxic waste material to good use, providing health and safety benefits in underserved communities.
LOW COST, LOW EMISSIONS
Operates under ambient conditions—whatever the surrounding air temp is—requiring very little energy.
HIGH POTENTIAL FOR USE
One possible application of our carbonate residue is as a supplementary cementitious material.
The literature shows there is plenty of waste material available to sustainably remove one billion tons of carbon from the air.
Can be deployed as skid-mounted units to waste locations such as coal ash ponds or landfills, or be built as a stationary plant.
Our student-led team is committed to mitigating the climate crisis through carbon removal, and given that the International Panel for Climate change (IPCC) predicts the need for 10 gigatons of net CO2 per year to manage this threat, we intend to pair skill with innovation to meet the demand. As one of the winners of the XPRIZE Carbon Removal Student Competition, we aim to remove a gigaton—that’s one billion tons—of CO2 with our cutting-edge carbon sequestration technology.
