The problem is in the air
Heating and cooling the air in U.S. commercial buildings costs around $36 billion annually, and even more with increased ventilation around COVID-19.
Large-scale ambient air CO2 capture projects cost tens of millions of dollars and use terajoules of energy each year, primarily on large fans to move air.
As we attempt to move towards a low-carbon future, we need to find ways to save energy, capture CO2, and promote healthy buildings.
The solution is out of the box (metaphorically)
The Carbon Capsule is a modular carbon capture device that retrofits into a commercial ventilation system.
At Carbon Reform we realized the sheer amount of CO2 that passes through commercial buildings each year (about 4 gigatons, to be specific). With proprietary CO2-scrubbing technology and additional filtration for VOCs, pathogens, and particulates, installing the Carbon Capsule allows commercial building owners to reduce supply air.
Benefits for customers include:
Energy savings of up to 40% per air handler.
A healthy, low-CO2 and pathogen-free building.
Carbon credits generated onsite.
