Can this invention fix dirty transportation? 

Rather than replacing all semi-trucks on the road, this clip-on device filters 80% of each trucks’ CO2.

Every year, semi trucks create 339 million metric tons of carbon dioxide. That is equivalent to 5% of the entire U.S. carbon footprint. 

However, these trucks are absolutely crucial to our supply chain. Unfortunately, there is no good solution to decarbonize these trucks.

A company called Remora has developed a mobile carbon capture system — the first ever of its kind to be commercialized anywhere in the world. By retrofitting existing diesel trucks, Remora hopes that its carbon capture and storage system can decarbonize the trucking industry.
