GCT was founded as a university spin-out by two serial entrepreneurs and an experienced DAC researcher, based on 15 years of research. The company is located in Essen – the heart of industrial Germany – and is surrounded by leading technical universities as well as global chemical, industrial, and energy giants.
GCT develops and markets a novel low-temperature direct air capture technology operating at unprecedented energy efficiency. The process consists of three main steps: (1) absorption in a liquid sorbent solution, (2) precipitation as hydrogen carbonate, and (3) desorption by either through alkaline water electrolysis, which produces hydrogen as a by-product, or through thermal, low calorific waste heat.
Experienced serial entrepreneur with proven industrial and business scaling track record and exceptional sales skills.
Leading researcher with over 15 years of carbon capture experience, various relevant publications and scientific accomplishments.
Experienced tech entrepreneur with expertise in bringing complex B2B products to life. Research track record in Material Chemistry and Operations Management.
