Carbon Capture for Semi-Trucks with Paul Gross

Paul Gross and Joe Lynch discuss carbon capture for semi-trucks. Paul is the co-founder and the CEO of Remora, a company that is building a device that captures the carbon emissions from a semi-truck.

About Paul Gross

Paul Gross is the co-founder and CEO at Remora. While at Yale, he conducted experimental research that uncovered solutions to collective action problems like political polarization and the climate crisis. Paul also founded the Yale Politics Initiative, bringing top politicians, operatives, and activists to campus. Remora got started when he read a dissertation on mobile carbon capture written by his co-founder, Christina, and convinced her to quit her job as a scientist at the EPA. Then, he recruited his co-founder, Eric, a mechanic-turned-engineer who built hydrogen and electric semi-trucks for some of the world's largest automotive companies.

About Remora

Remora is building a device that captures the carbon emissions from a semi-truck. They sell the captured carbon dioxide to concrete producers and greenhouses, helping fleets earn new revenue while meeting their climate commitments. They recently announced in the Wall Street Journal that they raised $5.5M to pilot our devices with 16 different multibillion-dollar companies, including Cargill, Ryder, and Werner. They're backed by investors like Union Square Ventures, Y Combinator, Chris Sacca, and First Round.

Key Takeaways: Carbon Capture for Semi-Trucks 

  • Paul Gross is the Co-founder and CEO of Remora, which sells a carborn emissions capture device. Remora sells the captured carbon dioxide to concrete producers and other end-users, helping fleets earn new revenue while meeting their climate commitments.
  • In the podcast interview, Paul and Joe discuss the environmental impact that truck emissions have on the planet. Governments, consumers, and companies are all looking for ways to reduce the environmental impact of supply chains.
  • According to the Sierra Club, heavy-duty trucks make up 10% of the vehicles on the road but are responsible for 30% of carbon dioxide emissions and higher percentages of other pollutants.
  • Remora’s device retrofits onto an existing diesel semi-truck. It mounts between the tractor and its trailer, attaches to its tailpipes, and captures at least 80% of its carbon emissions.
  • While refueling at a truck stop or distribution center, the driver attaches a hose to our device, pumping the captured carbon dioxide into an offload tank in just 5 minutes.
  • Paired with biofuel or renewable natural gas, our device makes a truck carbon negative, allowing existing semi-trucks to cheaply remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
  • Adding the Remora device to one semi-truck is equivalent to planting 6,200 trees.
