Equatic has signed a deal with Boeing to remove 62,000 metric tonnes (MT) of carbon dioxide (CO2) and deliver 2,100MT of carbon-negative hydrogen.
The carbon removal company, recently spun out from the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering’s Institute for Carbon Management, believes it has stolen a march on competitors through its dual-use technology, which can address legacy and future emissions in a single process.
Equatic aims to become a major producer of carbon-negative hydrogen, created from processes that reduce atmospheric CO2. The hydrogen will be sold as a clean energy source to decarbonise industrial processes, produce electricity for the transportation sector, create Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAFs) and fuels for trucking, and power the Equatic technology itself.
Equatic’s carbon removal plant uses four inputs, seawater, air, rock, and renewable electricity, to remove and store CO2 while simultaneously generating carbon-negative hydrogen.
