A carbon negative solution
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 neededMORE
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 plantsMORE
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 limitationMORE

Edgar Bronfman Jr. is a Managing Partner at Accretive LLC, a unique firm that specializes in creating companies to solve important problems in large industries. Mr. Bronfman invested in Global Thermostat in 2010 becoming it’s first investor. Mr. Bronfman is also Executive Chairman of Global Thermostat LLC, a pioneering company designed to develop and commercialize a technology for the direct capture of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and other sources. He is also a co-founder and General Partner of Waverley Capital, a venture capital group focused on the opportunities presented by disruption in the media industry.
Global Thermostat CEO, Dr. Graciela Chichilnisky, is the recipient of the ‘Albert Nelson Marquis Who’s Who Lifetime Achievement Award’, as featured in the New York Edition of The Wall Street Journal.
Our plants remove carbon dioxide from wherever it’s unwanted, and provide it wherever it’s critically needed, allowing businesses and nations to satisfy both financial & environmental objectives. GT merges sustainability with profit.
The Industrial Revolution has been a lot of fun but it has pumped a bit too much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. As we all know, CO2 is not good for our environment. Global Thermostat wants to help our environment with their CO2 capture and use technology. Their device draws CO2 directly from the air—it’s like a scrubber on steroids. It’s cheap, easy to use, a breeze to integrate, and can be placed just about anywhere.
Dr. Graciela Chichilnisky was recently selected by IAIR® (International Alternative Investment Review), one of the fastest growing magazines worldwide concerning the global economy and sustainability, as the 2015 CEO of the Year in Sustainability. Her company, Global Thermostat, was also named Best Company for Sustainability in the “Clean Energy Solutions” category for its business model, which captures carbon from air and transforms it into cash.
For addressing global warming by grabbing carbon dioxide out of the air. Our energy-intensive western lifestyle comes with a hefty price: To generate most of our electricity we burn fossil fuels, a process that pumps billions of tons of carbon dioxide into the air every year. That CO2, in turn, helps warm the atmosphere (and explains why 2014 was the hottest year on record). Global Thermostat has a fix: filter air through devices that capture the CO2 with a chemical scrubber.
