Global Thermostat

Carbon Dioxide is both a high-profile greenhouse gas and a valuable market commodity that is in high demand and short supply.  Global Thermostat’s patented technology strips CO2 from the atmosphere and from industrial flues at low cost, generating valuable and critically needed industrial products, cleaning the air while creating enormous economic wealth.

Global Thermostat is a breakthrough innovation in both technology and business model.  It turns carbon from a nuisance and a cost into a massive source of revenue, making carbon capture a surprisingly low cost and very profitable business activity.  GT builds carbon capture plants that are able to efficiently and cost-effectively capture CO2 from the atmosphere and power plant smoke stacks, slashing transportation costs, and providing abundant, reliable, low cost CO2 wherever it is needed – for both current and emergent large scale industries. GT can economically capture more CO2 than industrial plants emit: it is therefore a carbon negative technology™.  In this way, the Company meets both economic and environmental objectives. Thus far, GT’s technology has 16 patents awarded in the US and internationally, and it is patent-protected in 147 countries. 3rd-Party reports validate that GT is the lowest cost producer in the world. Global Thermostat was selected “World’s Top Ten Most Innovative Company” in Energy by Silicon Valley magazine Fast Company in June 2015. Graciela Chichilnisky, Global Thermostat’s CEO & Co-Founder, was selected as “2015 CEO of the Year” by IAIR at Yale University Club in NYC April 16. GT currently has 2 operational commercial demo plants at the Stanford Research Institute and is in the process of building commercial plants right now. GT’s technology partners include Corning, BASF and Linde.
