About Us

The answer is in the air

Aircapture was founded on the premise that atmospheric CO2 is not just a threat, but also an incredible opportunity.

about us

The only way out is up.

We believe Direct Air Capture (DAC) is the best approach to mitigate the effects of climate change. It's the challenge of our lifetime.

We believe atmospheric decarbonization presents the largest economic opportunity of the next several decades. With decades of applicable experience, we're solving our era's greatest challenge.

Our vision

Our vision is to deploy DAC and carbon-to-product technologies widely while addressing climate inequity and developing the infrastructure of the future with the ultimate goal of socio-environmental equilibrium.
