Carbon capture equipment for ships
The shipping industry accounts for ~3% of global CO2 emissions. If it were a country, it would rank above Germany (the 6th largest emitter in the world).
Currently, there’s no solution for ships to go 100% clean. Alternative power sources like hydrogen, ammonia, and onboard batteries are still 10-20 years away from maturity for large ships.
Seabound is a London-based climate tech startup that captures CO2 emissions from ships.
We are building a retrofittable device that traps the CO2 from a ship’s exhaust gas. It has the potential to be one of the simplest, safest, and most affordable solutions for zero-emissions shipping.
Earlier this year, we proved the concept on land and secured 6 LOIs (Letters of Intent) from major shipowners to purchase our systems from 2024 onwards. This summer, we will demonstrate our first capture unit at sea with additional deployments to follow soon after.
The Founders’ Associate will play a critical role to support Seabound’s founders on a day to day basis within this fast-changing startup. This could include owning sub-components of the upcoming ship-based pilot projects, leading brand new initiatives and workstreams, and supporting the founders on an ad-hoc basis. Notably, this is the first-ever non-engineering hire onto the Seabound team, and comes at an exciting time in which the company is transitioning from the prototyping phase to commercialization. The responsibilities you own will directly contribute to shaping a brand new category of technology for the shipping industry and preventing greenhouse gas emissions from entering the atmosphere.
What You’ll Do:
We are looking for:
Seabound is an equal-opportunity employer. We value diversity and strive to create an environment that is inclusive to all employees.
The compensation range provided is only indicative and commensurates with the level of experience and location.
Seabound is tackling the climate crisis by decarbonizing shipping, one of the last, hard-to-abate sectors and a major, growing contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.
Seabound captures CO2 emissions directly from ships’ exhaust gas and then sells it for utilization or sequestration. This approach has the potential to be the simplest, safest, and most affordable solution for the shipping industry’s emissions.
