Clairity Technology was founded to develop technology and solutions to combat climate change. We create scalable and low-cost technology and systems for direct air capture of carbon dioxide.
We focus on generating low purity CO2 streams to simplify design, reduce cost, and improve scalability. As you increase the purity of CO2, the amount of energy required to further purify it goes up. It takes more energy to go from 90 to 100%, than from 0 to 10%. By limiting the final purity of our product, we end up with a process that is much more energy efficient per molecule of CO2 removed. The secondary impacts of this on our designs are huge, and we can use the same materials that you would use to build a house, unlike competitors' processes that need highly specialized, and expensive, equipment.
