Our co-founders Josh and Daniel started Noya while roommates in San Francisco. Their goal? To accelerate the world’s transition to carbon negativity so we can all continue enjoying the things we love on a healthy, thriving planet. A scrappy initial prototype attracted the attention of neighbors, and eventually the San Francisco Bomb Squad – and Noya was born.
Initial R&D focused on retrofitting cooling towers for Direct Air Capture. We gathered more data while assembling an amazing, committed team of scientists, engineers, and operators.
With the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 passing into law, there's now an unparalleled opportunity for Direct Air Capture companies who capture 1,000+ tons of CO2 per deployment. A worthy challenge. And Noya has committed to moving forward with these projects first to quickly scale up to achieve this.
We’ll share more about what this new vision entails in the weeks and months to come.
