What Our Planet Needs

Annual Emissions and Carbon Removal Chart

The science is clear

In addition to decreasing emissions, we need to remove CO2 that we’ve already emitted, to prevent climate change from continuing to harm our planet. And we need to do it now.

Why DAC?

Direct Air Capture (DAC) is one of the most promising technologies to remove CO2 due to its ability to verifiably and permanently sequester CO2 for millennia.

But there’s a catch – DAC is currently too complex, too expensive, and not deployable at great scale.

Rocks to Removals

Our technology was designed to operate with today’s resources and fundamental chemistry to secure our future.

We combine the natural properties of limestone with proven industrial technology to permanently remove CO2 from the atmosphere.


Origen Kiln for DAC – We use a proprietary design to drive CO2 out of limestone. Fuel flexible; TRL 9 components

Origen Low Intensity Contactor – We let nature do its work by utilizing simple structures for passive CO2 capture

High Performance Lime Preparation for DAC – We engineered calcium oxide, also known as lime, specifically for DAC and use Origen's proprietary processing to maximize its ability to remove CO2 from the air

How are we different?

We designed a simple solution to minimize the risks associated with direct air capture. Here's how:

We own the
full loop

Core elements of limestone-based DAC are kiln and contactor. We own both.

Our contactor is
low intensity

Enabled by our optimized lime production and processing

We utilize scalable and
cost effective inputs

Limestone and thermal energy molecules that are available widely and today

Our solution is

Scientifically proven to lock away CO2 for over 1,000 years
