August 09, 2021 | Case Study

Blue Planet is working with Sulzer Chemtech to develop a carbon capture unit for the startup's CO2-to-concrete pilot plant in Pittsburg, California. Sulzer's partnership with Blue Planet complements the company's growing innovation focus on sustainable solutions, such as recycling and biomaterials, to minimize the environmental impacts of its products and help customers decarbonize operations. In recent years, the engineering conglomerate has been involved in similar pilot projects with emerging technology developers for synthetic fuel production and textile recycling, including LanzaTech, Quantafuel, and Worn Again. Blue Planet has raised $21 million to date from investors including Mitsubishi, Leonardo DiCaprio, and For Good Ventures. The company's most recent funding round closed in December 2020 and involved a $6 million Series C investment led by Chevron Technology Ventures.
