Bill Gates-Led Fund Backs Tech to Use Natural Gas Without the Carbon Impact

Akshat Rathi of Bloomberg Green reports on C-Zero, a startup that eliminates much of the carbon footprint of natural gas.

The C3 Take
  • C-Zero’s novel technology lowers the carbon footprint of natural gas by splitting methane and carbon.
  • Natural gas will play a significant role in our future energy portfolio, finding ways to lower its emissions will be essential to providing clean and reliable energy.
  • C-Zero is yet another example of the free market’s leadership in lowering our emissions.

“The company has developed technology to lower the greenhouse-gas emissions from using natural gas. Instead of burning the fuel to produce carbon dioxide and water, C-Zero passes the gas through a mixture of molten salts. Doing so splits methane — the main component of natural gas — into hydrogen gas and solid carbon. When the hydrogen burns, it produces water; the solid carbon goes to landfills.”
