“The climate crisis is affecting every aspect of our lives, from the fires raging across our nation to the record temperatures we're experiencing," Spiritus CEO and co-founder Charles Cadieu said in a news release.


Advancements at Spiritus have “allowed us to get closer to an industry milestone: making (direct-air capture) a practical and affordable solution for carbon removal,” Cadieu said.

“By achieving a scalable cost that aligns with what the world needs, we can enable countries, companies, and individuals to create a carbon-neutral future. It's a game-changing moment for our planet."


Orrick’s Andy Bloom, Emily Donohue and Daniel Lopez were on a team advising Spiritus.
