Ebb Carbon wants to pull CO2 from the sky with electricity and seawater

Maria Gallucci of Canary Media writes on Ebb Carbon which is using the ocean to sequester CO2.

The C3 Take
  • Ebb Carbon is partnering with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) to speed up the carbon sequestration potential of the ocean.
  • The company splits saltwater with electrochemistry into its acidic and alkaline components and returns the alkaline water to the ocean where it creates a chemical reaction that traps CO2 at a faster rate.
  • Since launching in 2011, Ebb has raised over $25 million to develop and deploy its electrochemical system, which can fit inside a 20-foot shipping container.

“The technology builds on years of research led by Matt Eisaman, the company’s CTO and co-founder, who recently joined Yale University’s Center for Natural Carbon Capture as a faculty member. Eisaman first met Tarbell, a former SolarCity executive, several years ago when both were working with Alphabet’s innovation arm, X.”
