Travertine Technologies: Re-engineering chemical production for Carbon Dioxide Removal

The proprietary electrochemical process permanently converts carbon dioxide into a mineral while simultaneously producing sulfuric acid–the world’s most produced chemical–for use in critical element extraction and fertilizer production. Travertine was founded by UC Berkeley Professor Laura Lammers, an expert in carbonate mineralization, to reduce the environmental impact of extracting elements that are needed for the renewable energy transition.
