As Special Expedition members of Climeworks, we help them to scale their technology to remove 100kg of CO2 from the air a month.

Climeworks uses a technology called ‘direct air capture’ to capture carbon dioxide directly from the air. When the removed CO₂ is combined with underground storage, it allows the permanent removal of excess and legacy CO₂ emissions, which can no longer contribute to climate change.

tec5USA is an Independent Supporter of The Ocean Cleanup, which is a nonprofit environmental engineering organization based in the Netherlands, that develops technology to extract plastic pollution from the oceans and intercept it in rivers before it can reach the ocean.

The organization conducts scientific research into oceanic plastic pollution. Their ocean system consists of a floating barrier at the surface of the water in the oceanic gyres, that collects marine debris as the system is pushed by wind, waves and current, and slowed down by a sea anchor. The project aims to launch a total of 60 such systems, and they predict this capability could clean up 50% of the debris in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in five years from full scale deployment.
