"We started Holy Grail to build and scale technologies that can help enable a world where humans live on Earth without destroying the planet and the species that live on it. Our long-term goal is to have the most efficient framework to scale "holy grails" - technologies that the world needs but are hard to build. Modular direct air carbon capture is our first step. The planet needs a carbon capture technology that can be deployed at more than 100 billion tonnes of CO2 per year, but this is hard to build and does not exist in the world yet. We are also excited about enabling everyone to remove CO2 from the atmosphere with our modular scrubbers. After we achieve our goal to remove the excess CO2 from the atmosphere, we will continue to build and scale more holy grails."

Direct air capture removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere
Direct air capture (DAC) is a versatile tool that can help to mitigate climate change. To do this, the captured CO2 must be permanently stored so that the concentration of CO2, a greenhouse gas, is reduced. This reduces the effects of climate change by reducing the amount of the sun's energy that is trapped within the Earth's atmosphere
