How does it really work? Soletair Power manufactures CO2 capturing equipment connected to ventilation machines to make people more productive and wellbeing. Captured CO2 is combined with hydrogen to create hydrocarbons i.e. fuels. These fuels (diesel, gasoline, methane) are called electricity fuels.

One of the key takeaways for me from the conversation was how Soletair power has positioned itself as a solution provider for clean air in buildings looking at some intangible benefits like improving people’s moods and providing them with clean air for increasing productivity and well being. Positioning like a service helps the solution being commercially viable. Of course more research and development will definitely make it an even better commercially viable and attractive value proposition but that shouldn’t stop us from giving this a try.
