EDAC Labs, Inc has exclusively licensed a novel electrochemical salt splitting process from Johns Hopkins University that we call “electrosynthesizer.” ...View Company Profile
EDAC Labs is developing a new class of electrochemistry systems that provide low-energy synthesis of acid and base for decarbonization applications. EDAC Labs’ technology, which was created in Professor Chao Wang's lab at the Johns Hopkins University School of Engineering, is currently supported by R&D grants from ARPA-E and DARPA, and is being commercialized by EDAC Labs, where Dr. Wang serves at Chief Technology Officer. EDAC Labs is supported by a $3M seed funding round. EDAC Labs was also selected for the highly competitive Third Derivative First Gigaton Captured Cohort. EDAC Labs was recently awarded a $500K prepurchase agreement through Frontier Carbon.
EDAC Labs’ core innovation is an electrochemical cell that enables low-energy splitting of brine into acids and bases. While acids and bases have a wide range of uses, EDAC Labs’ first two applications are: 1) carbon-negative mining and 2) direct air carbon capture and sequestration. We also plan to sell electrochemical systems to developers doing ocean alkalinity enhancement, direct ocean capture, and enhanced weathering.
EDAC Labs seeks electrochemical engineers who will help us to build, optimize and scale up the system to support commercial volumes of acid-base production, carbon capture, and sequestration/utilization. Working alongside our process engineering team, you will build, test, and optimize the electrosynthesizer. You will become a subject matter expert on system optimization. You will also participate in the creation of control systems and help construct prototypes for field deployment.
