Greenlyte Carbon Technologies operates a DAC process to capture CO2 from the air while producing hydrogen as a by-product. The company’s vision is to become a DAC technology platform to leverage network effects and reach gigascale in less than 25 years.

“We want to make direct air capture affordable and accessible so that humanity can actively manage the amount of carbon in our atmosphere for the long-term good of our planet. This includes capturing carbon to store it underground forever, but also providing green carbon and hydrogen for carbon-dependent industries such as sustainable aviation fuels or the chemical industry.”
