Restoring equilibrium with nature

Equil is focused on carbon. Reducing CO2 levels in the environment through fast-growing seaweed and then recycling carbon into ultra low carbon products that back-out fossil fuels


Why ?

We're in a climate emergency

As CO2 levels rise in both oceans and the atmosphere, temperatures are forecast to rise creating significant challenges for all animal and plant life. Today, we are falling well short of developing and implementing solutions to both limit annual 50 GTc/annum emissions as well as reduce the 420 ppm concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere.

Our approach

Low-cost, scaled cultivation and processing of seaweed

Onshore cultivation

Focus on building the first Operating System for onshore cultivation at scale

Shallow raceway pond system linked to a proprietary clonal propagation model

Scale enables creation of low carbon clusters including upgrading, renewables and aquaculture

Seaweed varietals

Focus on fast-growing and high density/litre Gracilaria red algae (30% protein and 70% carbohydrates) as well as Ulva and Asparagopsis. Ideal feedstocks for upgrading into higher value products

Wide variety of processing pathways available from anaerobic digestion and pyrolysis through to HTL and HTC


 Seaweed breaks down easily using thermal hydrolysis, enabling simpler separation and upgrading

Why this approach makes sense

Carbon dioxide (CO2)

Concentration in the ocean is 50x that of the atmosphere, making it easier to remove. Reducing ocean CO2 pulls CO2 down from the atmosphere. 

Our approach doesn't require freshwater, nor arable land and by its very nature is additive and verifiable.
