New Sky Energy’s proprietary process is a two step chemical pathway. First, New Sky uses industrial wastewater or salt as a feedstock to create hydrogen, oxygen, acid, and base (lye). The company then converts its base to market-ready carbonates by trapping CO2 from air or flue gas. The end products are carbon negative. New Sky seeks to partner with large industrial companies.
