About Us

Sustaining the Planet Through Innovation

Our vision is to create a place where, 20 years in the future, our children can walk outside and breathe in clean air, and where biodiversity is still thriving both on land and sea. This is an inexpensive and effective solution to the pressing problem of carbon capture, which has been looked at as sci-fi for far too long now - with Cequest, we want to bring the concept to a broad scale reality.

From our large-scale plant, we will be able to sequester approximately 8.5 million tonnes of CO2 per year, equivalent to the amount sequestered by 380,000 trees over the same period. The cost per tonne at this stage will drop to around $32 per tonne of CO2 removed (assuming selling hydrogen gas at the cheapest rate on the market), making this technology half the cost of the theoretical cost of other carbon capture solutions such as BECCS that are not nearly as scalable (estimated max CO2 removal at 1.5 Gt by 2050).

Origins

Cequest was started out of a TKS Moonshot Hackathon by ambitious teenagers looking to solve global problems.
