Transforming excess CO2 into sustainable resources for the planet
In a world grappling with climate change, AIR Company is on a quest to redefine how society interacts with our most abundant pollutant, carbon dioxide (CO2). Born out of a shared ambition of founders Gregory Constantine and Dr. Stafford Sheehan, the carbon technology firm aims to harness CO2 to combat atmospheric greenhouse gas levels while pioneering a new wave of eco-conscious products.
“Creating planetary change through technology and product innovation is our purpose. We’re revolutionizing production standards and supply chains by transforming Earth’s excess CO2 into carbon-negative alcohols and fuels,” explains Gregory Constantine, Co-founder and CEO of AIR Company.
NASA and AIR Company: carbon utilization and space food innovation
AIR Company and NASA’s Deep Space Food Challenge are spearheading transformative efforts for a sustainable future. AIR Company has advanced to Phase 3 of the Deep Space Food Challenge, standing alongside other innovative teams as they develop full-scale versions of their technologies.
Tackling climate change through carbon utilization technology
AIR Company’s proprietary carbon utilization technology is designed to convert CO2 into carbon-negative alcohols and fuels. The process mirrors nature’s photosynthesis, only in a more efficient and larger scale. By applying this technology across various industries, the company aims to transform current production practices into carbon-negative standards.
Decarbonizing industries through scalable solutions
Utilizing renewable energy sources, AIR Company’s breakthrough technology converts CO2 into impurity-free alcohols, leaving only oxygen and water as byproducts. The company’s potential impact is significant: if their technology is scaled across all verticals, it could prevent up to 10.8% of global CO2 emissions annually – more than triple Africa’s yearly emissions.
Revolutionizing aviation with sustainable fuel
AIRMADE™ SAF, AIR Company’s sustainable aviation fuel, is a remarkable innovation. Created from CO2, the fuel addresses one of the biggest environmental challenges by mitigating the aviation industry’s carbon footprint. Furthermore, the company’s CO2-derived jet fuel has already been approved and flown by the US Air Force.
Transition to green fuels
AIR Company’s patented technology simplifies the complex multi-step conversion process used in conventional synthetic fuel production into a single-step process, creating fuel-grade paraffins. This development opens the doors to a cleaner and more sustainable future free from the dependency on fossil fuels.
Pioneering cleaner production standards with ethanol and methanol
In addition to aviation fuel, AIR Company has successfully created ethanol and methanol using its innovative carbon conversion technology. These carbon-negative alternatives not only offer a cleaner solution for powering industries but also pave the way for higher environmental standards in production practices.
Future with carbon technology
AIR Company’s pioneering work in carbon technology is more than an innovation; it’s a beacon of hope for a sustainable future. Its potential to redefine our relationship with CO2 holds promise not only for our generation but for generations to come. The concept of turning pollutants into valuable resources fundamentally shifts how we perceive waste and environmental responsibility.
As we look ahead, AIR Company’s ambitions align with the core tenets of Longtermism – emphasizing the importance of considering the long-term consequences of our actions. By applying their technology across various industries and expanding it globally, the company is not only creating a potential solution for today’s climate crisis but is also crafting a blueprint for a sustainable future that ensures the well-being of all life on earth, and even beyond.
