High quality, accessible CDR credits

The ocean naturally removes carbon from the atmosphere and stores it permanently. Equatic accelerates this natural process, accurately measuring carbon removed, with best-in-class energy efficiency.

  • Measurable

    The Equatic process is intentionally designed and engineered to measure CDR within a closed system. This means we have continuous, unambiguous data about operational performance and exact monitoring of CO2 removed is possible at any point in time.

  • Verifiable

    Third-party ISO 14064-2:2019 methodology that provides rules for eligibility, means of quantification, monitoring instructions, reporting requirements and verification parameters. This ensures net negative CO2 and provides an auditable record of the whole process.

  • Permanent

    Equatic securely stores CO2 as mineralized (bi)carbonates. Aqueous bicarbonates immobilizes CO2 for more than 10,000 years, and solid carbonates immobilizes CO2 for up to billions of years. There is no risk of reversal from these immobilization pathways.

  • Additional

    Seawater-mediated electrolysis has been developed to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Plant commissioning and operations depends on the sale of CDR to customers. Every tonne removed is additional.

  • Energy Efficient

    Flow electrolysis is engineered to ensure rapid reactions. The Equatic process operates at
    low current densities and Ohmic losses, at high Faradaic efficiencies, and produces green hydrogen. Taken together this means the energy footprint per tonne of CDR is best-in-class.

  • Credible

    The carbon market is growing rapidly. As in any new industry, transparency and credibility are necessary to build trust with buyers, governments and communities. Put plainly, Equatic uses data and not speculative estimates to generate carbon credits.

Green Hydrogen

Equatic not only removes carbon, but uses renewable energy to produce hydrogen, a clean fuel. The hydrogen can be sold as a clean energy source to decarbonize industrial processes, produce electricity for the transportation sector, create Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAFs) and fuels for trucking, and power the Equatic technology itself.

The co-production of hydrogen means that Equatic’s net energy intensity is best-in-class versus other CDR companies. As such, the bundled CDR/hydrogen unit economics are highly advantageous. Current market demand for high quality CDR is limited by cost per tonne and the production of two, highly-valuable products ensures wider accessibility of Equatic’s CDR.

Current Projects


Equatic has been operating a pilot at the Port of Los Angeles since March 2023 and a pilot at the Tuas Desalination Plant, Singapore since April 2023. Each facility has a capacity of 100kg of carbon removal per day and resembles commercial-scale plants in terms of, for example, seawater intake, electrolyzer architecture, gas processing, power electronics, and sensors and control instrumentation.

These pilots enabled Equatic to demonstrate and validate advanced technology concepts including low energy demand, high-rate seawater processing, and a scalable manufacturing approach to accelerate and expedite commercialization.

Singapore Pilot


Equatic is now constructing the world’s largest ocean-based carbon removal plant, “Equatic-1”, with a capacity of 3,650tpa of CDR. Equatic-1 is a modular system, allowing the performance of individual units to be staged and stacked to allow systematic and rapid expansion. The engineering design, fabrication, and installation builds on the learnings from two pilot facilities and the units will deploy Equatic’s oxygen-selective anodes developed with the support of the Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) to produce carbon-negative hydrogen.

This project continues Equatic’s joint efforts to identify methods, processes, and practices to scale global deployment of carbon dioxide removal technologies. Importantly, Equatic-1 will demonstrate improvements in the unit cost per tonne of CO2 removed using the electrochemical reactors manufactured by Equatic, and will use the ISO 14064-2:2019 standard MRV methodology that was established during the Equatic pilot phase.

Equatic has commenced development for its first commercial scale deployment–a plant capable of removing 109,500 tonnes of CO2 and generating 3,600 tonnes of carbon-negative hydrogen per year as early as 2026. This plant will be a modular system that deploys the electrolyzers optimized during the Equatic-1 demonstration project. Carbon credits and hydrogen from future plants have been pre-sold to companies with further sales ongoing.

Environmentally and Socially Responsible Deployment

One of Equatic’s key learnings from interactions with communities worldwide is the need to be highly attuned to the full breadth of opportunities and challenges, as experienced at the community-level, associated with industrial-scale deployment of new technologies.

Equatic acknowledges that nation states and communities have diverse practices and expectations, both long-established and emergent, regarding responsible industry deployment. Equatic understands the vital role that these practices and expectations play in the places where Equatic operates. As such, Equatic is deeply committed to local engagement in furtherance of sustainable operations.

Equatic has commissioned independent experts to provide recommendations to mitigate the impact, where required, to ecologically sensitive marine areas. An environmental impact assessment includes a detailed review of localized conditions and the expected change over the lifetime of the project. Equatic’s process has been designed to operate within existing environmental regulations in multiple jurisdictions.

Beyond regulatory requirements, Equatic is conducting additional field trials, ecological assessments and localized activities with scientific communities to further the research into advanced technologies for carbon removal and hydrogen production.
