WHAT WE DO
to create a win-win for
climate and commerce.
At RoCo, we are developing a carbontech process which will significantly lower capital and operating costs of CO2 capture and utilization. This will provide a major incentive to big fossil fuel users and high emission operators to recycle and repurpose their CO2 waste into marketable products. In short, our innovation will create new revenue streams and a vibrant, greener future.
