Climate change is the greatest challenge humans have ever faced.
We dump over 72 trillion pounds of CO2 into the atmosphere each year.

Since the age of industrialization, CO2 emissions have skyrocketed.
To stabilize concentrations of CO2 in the atmosphere, the world needs to reach net-zero emissions. Yet at a time when global emissions need to be rapidly falling, CO2 emissions are in fact still rising, as the chart here shows.
Fossil fuels and cement production CO2 emissions only—land use change not included
As a result, average global temperatures are rapidly rising.

Temperatures will continue to rise unless dramatic action is taken
Human emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases are a primary driver of climate change. This link between global temperatures and greenhouse gas concentrations – especially CO2 – has been true throughout Earth’s history. If we don’t reverse this trend, global warming threatens to substantially change the planet over the next several decades.

For the sake of our future, this excess CO2 needs to be removed.
That’s what we do at CarbonCapture.
We create machines that remove CO2 directly from the atmosphere
We're working to reverse climate change by developing machines that leverage innovative molecular sieves, low-cost solar power, and smart AI control systems to cost-effectively remove CO2 from the atmosphere at scale. The CO2 our systems capture can be either permanently deposited underground or recycled as a raw material.
