Text from PDF Page: 002THE CARBON OPPORTUNITY CARBON-TO-VALUE Carbon is the backbone of the modern economy, but CO2 emissions have become a serious liability. Today, there is a new opportunity to make productive use of excess CO2 emissions. The market for products made from CO2 is estimated to be over $1 trillion per year by Global CO2 Initiative. Products and materials like concrete, carbon fiber, polymers, food, fertilizer, liquid fuels, graphene, and many others have the potential to offer superior performance, lower cost, and lower carbon footprint when made from CO2. This emerging industry is known variously as “carbon-to-value”, “carbontech”, and “carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS)”. The long term vision is a new low-carbon economy built around recycling CO2 emissions, producing superior products, and supporting a stable global climate. Market activity in the space is accelerating, and the structural elements of a capital ecosystem have begun to form. Groups like Breakthrough Energy Ventures, Oil and Gas Climate Initiative, Y-Combinator, Carbontech Labs, Circular Carbon Network, CO2 Value Europe, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are supporting and driving innovation, private investment, corporate engagement, and policy. A new $85 per ton U.S. federal tax credit (“45Q”) for capturing and utilizing CO2 is anticipated to support development of new large commercial projects. As a whole, we estimate that the entire sector has garnered a total investment of less than $250 million to date, despite the estimated $1 trillion market opportunity. CARBON XPRIZE The companies profiled here are finalists in the NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE, a $20 million global prize competition for conversion of CO2 into products. Over the past year each company was vetted by independent engineering auditors and a panel of expert judges against the following performance metrics: CO2 uptake, economic value of product, product market size, and environmental footprint. Now they are scaling their systems by 10X as they prepare to build and operate commercial-scale demonstration projects at either the Wyoming Integrated Test Center or the Alberta Carbon Conversion Technology Center. The Finalists are seeking to close their current rounds of fundraising by the end of 2018. Investors and prospective partners interested in further information are encouraged to contact the founders directly for specific inquiries, or for general information, firstname.lastname@example.org. 2 INVESTMENT LANDSCAPE

CO2 GTL Gas to Liquids Experimental Platform: Experiment with gas to liquids (CO2 to alcohol) using Nafion (electrolyzer membrane) and our phase change demonstrator cart (we can ship worldwide). CO2 goes supercritical at 31 C. This is a experimental platform which you can use to demonstrate phase change with low heat. Includes integration area for small CO2 turbine, static generator, Nafion pellets, Nafion membrate, or Nafion tubes... More Info
Concept: The concept of the SeaMerlin Engine is to convert or supplement existing marine vessel propulsion to a gas leverage turbine which scavenges CO2 from saltwater at the same time it provides vessel thrust.
