Black & Veatch Selects 6 Startups

Black & Veatch

Black & Veatch, an Overland Park, KS-based engineering, procurement, consulting and construction company, has selected six startups to participate in its BV IgniteX Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) Accelerator.

As part of the 12-week program, participants partner with Black & Veatch thought leaders and subject matter experts who provide consultation and support towards co-developing, piloting and/or marketing the new technology. Along the way, they receive mentorship, access to the company’s industry network, product testing opportunities, pitch development coaching and investor introductions. The program ends with a showcase where the entrepreneurs present their solutions and outline their value propositions and market opportunity.

  • Aeon Blue, a company that uses seawater and renewable energy to make a drop-in replacement for fossil fuel while capturing and storing CO2 from air.
  • Ebb Carbon, a provider of a new marine carbon dioxide removal solution by enhancing the ocean’s natural ability to safely store CO2 with an electrochemical technology.
  • Elysia, a company that enables CO2 removal using electrospun nanomaterials, with its durable materials able to process huge amounts of air quickly, with minimal energy and at low costs.
  • Heimdal, a company that builds machines that use mineral sorbents to permanently capture and store atmospheric CO2.
  • Holocene, a direct air capture (DAC) technology developer and CDR service provider building liquid-based, continuous and low-temperature systems.
  • Parallel Carbon, a company that uses renewable power with integrated DAC and water electrolysis processes to reduce costs and optimize value.
