Remora

Remora is an early-stage climate tech startup backed by Chris Sacca and Y Combinator. We’re building a device that captures the carbon emissions from a semi-truck. We sell the captured carbon dioxide to concrete producers and other end users, helping companies earn new revenue while meeting their climate commitments.

Our founders include a former EPA scientist who pioneered mobile carbon capture during her PhD and a former diesel mechanic turned engineer who built electric semi-trucks for some of the world’s largest automotive companies.
