Millions of tons of carbon dioxide(CO2) is being captured annually and it is sequestered in the ground. Moreover, some of this CO2 is used to pump more oil. There is also a problem of this CO2 leaking out in an event of earthquake or other natural disasters. This is where our startup comes in. We solve the problem of using the captured CO2 to make products instead of sequestering it in the ground.
