A global startup focused on capturing harmful factory emissions before they enter the atmosphere is now calling Houston the home for its U.S. headquarters.

Carbon Clean announced in a news release that they opened their headquarters March 8 at The Ion, located in midtown at 4201 Main St., Houston. The decision to expand in the U.S. was due to a “booming demand for its carbon capture technology,” the news statement said.

“The. U.S. has become one of the best places in the world to develop industrial carbon capture projects. Carbon Clean has seen a huge uptick in interest from industrials across the U.S., and our new Houston headquarters will help us to meet this demand. We are already partnering with companies with major U.S. operations, including Chevron and CEMEX,” Chair and CEO Aniruddha Sharma said in a news statement.

Headquartered in the United Kingdom, with offices in the U.S. and India, the news statement said that the company received funding and grant support from both the British and U.S. governments. The company said in the news release that it is looking to double the number of its U.S. employees to meet demand for CycloneCC, its fully modular technology, in what is expected to become its biggest market.

“Carbon Clean is experiencing phenomenal growth globally, but we expect our expansion in North America to outpace all other regions. As a result, we intend to establish a very significant base in North America, which will include developing a local supply chain to ensure we are set to ramp up commercialization,” Sharma said in a news statement.
