EDAC Labs, Inc has exclusively licensed a novel electrochemical salt splitting process from Johns Hopkins University that we call “electrosynthesizer.” This energy-efficient synthesis of acid and base uses only electricity and brine as inputs and operates at ambient temperature and pressure. This system has the potential to supply acid and base for direct air capture, ocean alkalinity enhancement, direct ocean capture, and other decarbonization activities where acid and/or base prove essential, and it is EDAC Labs’ intention to become a supplier of electrosynthesizer technology to various CDR developers.
In August, EDAC Labs announced that it raised a $3M seed round led by the Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment. In July, EDAC Labs was accepted into the Third Derivative First Gigaton Captured Cohort 2. In August, EDAC Labs was selected for the 2023 Frontier prepurchase cohort.
EDAC Labs is currently finalizing its headquarters lease that will be located between Columbia, MD and Beltsville, MD, which are north of Washington, DC., and an easy commute from the DC and Baltimore suburbs.
