This UK startup can capture 95% of a ship’s carbon emissions

Like many of us, Alisha Fredriksson is terrified about climate change. But unlike many of us, she’s rolling up her sleeves and doing something about it.  

Two years ago the young entrepreneur co-founded Seabound — a London-based startup on a mission to decarbonise the shipping industry. 

Unlike other modes of transport like cars or buses, big shipping companies have few technologies at their disposal to slash emissions. The sector emits 3% of global carbon dioxide — more than air travel — so urgent solutions are needed.

Seabound’s answer? A carbon capture system that can remove 95% of a cargo ship’s CO2 emissions before they enter the atmosphere.
