RepAir Carbon closes $1.5m seed round to develop cell for modular Direct Air Capture inspired by fuel cell technology

Wednesday, October 6, 2021 - 2:26pm

TEL AVIV, Israel, Oct. 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- RepAir Carbon's innovative technology uses electrical current and a unique selective membrane to separate CO2 from the air. The company's prototype has already demonstrated several advantages relative to competing Direct Air Capture solutions, consuming up to 3 times less energy for each tonne of CO2 captured without the need for high temperature or significant pressure differentials. RepAir's modular cell design is also expected to make it viable in many more deployment scenarios and with reduced capital expenditure.

Key Points: 
  • RepAir's modular cell design is also expected to make it viable in many more deployment scenarios and with reduced capital expenditure.
  • Seed funding will allow the RepAir team to refine the company's existing prototype cell, maximizing efficiency and yield before scaling production for initial customer applications.
  • Amir Shiner, co-founder and CEO of RepAir said "Direct Air Capture plays a key role in any scenario where global temperature rises less than 2C.
  • RepAir develops a Direct Air Capture system based on a proprietary electrochemical cell technology that can capture CO2 from the air in gigaton scale.
