Captura Corp. (capturacorp.com) is an American ocean carbon capture company. It has innovated an electrochemical technology for low-cost and scalable Direct Ocean Capture (DOC), which removes CO2 directly from seawater. The CO2-depleted seawater then is returned to the ocean with the regenerated capacity to absorb more CO2 from the atmosphere. Captura’s long-term goal is to remove CO2 at gigaton scale by leveraging the ocean’s natural ability to absorb and store atmospheric CO2. CIEIF’s funding will support a holistic assessment, employing independent experts, of the potential biological and ecosystem impacts of the discharge plume from Captura’s 100-ton pilot operation located at the Port of Los Angeles in San Pedro, California.
