Equatic.tech is a company founded in 2021 that commercializes a novel electrolytic process for ocean carbon removal, developed by scientists at UCLA’s Institute for Carbon Management. The process involves continuous flow-through of seawater in an electrolyzer that stabilizes carbon dioxide permanently in the form of dissolved bicarbonate ions and solid mineral carbonates. 

Additionally, the process produces green hydrogen as a co-product that generates another revenue stream and can serve as an energy resource.

Equatic’s technology has been demonstrated with two pilots, one at the Port of Los Angeles and another in Singapore – each removing ~100 kg of CO2 per day. Equatic has designed and built novel, two-chamber, flow-through electrolytic reactors and is continuously validating and optimizing the technology.

“Equatic’s approach is distinct, addressing both future and legacy carbon simultaneously. Carbon removal is directly measured using sensors inside Equatic’s facility. When combined with the vastness of the ocean, this approach enables unprecedented certainty for the permanent storage of atmospheric carbon at accessible cost,” commented Edward Sanders, Chief Operating Officer at Equatic.
