Boeing signs with Equatic to cut carbon footprint

 Friday, June 2, 2023 


Boeing has signed an agreement with Los Angeles-based startup Equatic to purchase hydrogen produced by facilities designed to cleanse seawater of carbon dioxide.

Equatic’s carbon-removal system, developed by UCLA engineering faculty, will be employed at facilities in the port of Los Angeles and Singapore.

The hydrogen produced can be used as a component in sustainable aviation fuel, helping the aviation industry reduce its carbon footprint.

Under the five-year agreement, Equatic will remove 62,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide for Boeing and supply the aerospace company with 2,100 metric tons of hydrogen.

The partnership is seen as a significant boost for Equatic’s initiative, which aims to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and produce hydrogen at a low cost. By utilizing technology that captures carbon dioxide and generates hydrogen, Boeing and Equatic contribute to the industry’s goal of achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
