Global Thermostat and ExxonMobil to Advance Breakthrough Atmospheric Carbon Capture Technology


  • Technology removes carbon dioxide from industrial sources and the atmosphere
  • Companies to evaluate potential scalability
  • Applications could extend across multiple industrial sectors

Disruptive Technology

Our transformative technology provides an abundant, reliable source of CO2 drawn from industrial flues or directly from the air. CO2 is supplied in any quantity desired via our completely modular design. Our modules each capture up to 40,000 tonnes of CO2 per year, and can be extended as needed

Lowest Cost

We produce CO2 at the lowest cost in the industry, using energy provided by residual heat rather than electricity. The modularity and scalability of our plants keep capex in line with demand and utilization. Our plants are also easy to integrate with existing point sources, such as power plants

Available Anywhere

Our Direct Air Capture technology with optimized thermodynamics eliminates prohibitive distribution costs prevalent in the industry. CO2 is supplied on-site wherever needed without cumbersome trucking or expensive distribution infrastructure. We repurpose CO2 without geographic limitation

Reversing Climate Change


How Carbon Removal Can Reverse Climate Change and Fix the Economy


This book is about the 21st session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), or COP21, held from 30 November to 11 December 2015 in Paris, which brought together around 40,000 participants in total with delegates representing each country, observers, and civil society members. It is one of the largest climate conferences ever organized. Co-written by Graciela Chichilnisky, who proposed and designed the carbon credit emissions trading market, this book is a must read for academics and professionals studying, implementing and analyzing global climate change policies; interested advance undergraduates and postgraduates interested in the follow up of the Kyoto Protocol and UNFCCC 1992 founding.
