These Startups Are Helping Carbon Dioxide Find a New Life

Coco Liu of Bloomberg writes about the different startups that are turning CO2 into new products.

The C3 Take
  • New York-based Air Company is using captured CO2 to produce ethanol which is then used to make carbon-friendly perfume.
  • Meanwhile, Calgary-based CleanO2 captures CO2 from building heating boilers and uses it to make soap.
  • LanzaTech has partnered with Lululemon, Zara, and H&M to create polyester derived from carbon capture-produced ethanol, effectively replacing petroleum-based plastics.

“Calgary-based CleanO2 transforms CO2 captured from building heating boilers into feedstock to make soap. Newlight Technologies, a biotechnology startup based in California, takes carbon pulled directly from the air and turns it into biodegradable plastics. Germany’s Covestro AG, one of the world’s largest polymer manufacturers, is also switching some of its fossil fuel-based feedstocks to carbon-derived materials for everything ranging from car shells to medical devices and stadium roofs.”
