Shopify Puts Up Cash for Rooftop Carbon-Capture Machines, Tree-Planting Drones

Ed Ballard writes in The Wall Street Journal on Shopify’s investments in clean technologies.

The C3 Take
  • Since 2019 the E-commerce giant has invested $32 million into carbon removal projects.
  • They have recently funded a San Francisco-based startup called Noya Inc., which captures CO2 from cooling towers on buildings.
  • Noya estimates that one office cooling tower would be able to remove 100 metric tons of CO2 per year.
  • Private sector innovation is accelerating green technologies.

“America’s roughly 2 million cooling towers remove heat from HVAC systems and industrial processes by bringing hot water into contact with a stream of air. Noya Inc., a San Francisco startup founded in 2020, has developed a system that captures carbon dioxide from those air currents. The gas can then be pressurized so it can be moved elsewhere to be stored underground or sold.”
