The Time100 Climate List: Ending the Year on a High Note

  • Cover of TIME100 Climate List

A few weeks ago, TIME magazine released their inaugural TIME100 Climate List, which focuses on leaders around the world who are making meaningful and practical progress in addressing climate change.

Equilibar is exceedingly proud to have collaborated with three of these.

While the list includes five categories, it seems especially appropriate that Equilibar’s connections are labeled as “innovators.”

Innovators Serving Innovators is a guiding principle for Equilibar. While we do not make the rocket that will explore outer space or manufacture the medication that will keep people healthy, we work closely with researchers around the world to enable them to accomplish these and other ambitious projects every day.

And we are especially proud of the way our devices and the expertise of our technical team have contributed to many different aspects of the global effort to mitigate climate change.

Over the past two years, we have been particularly active in different segments of the Hydrogen Energy Cycle, including electrolysis and fuel cell research. Our involvement with fuel cell research goes back more than a decade and we now have significant experience in this arena, but we are quickly gaining expertise in fluid control for electrolysis as well.

Beyond Hydrogen Energy, our valves and regulators have been used in a surprisingly wide range of environmental endeavors including destruction of PFAs and other hazardous waste, landfill gas extraction, desalination and other clean water processes, green manufacturing processes, biofuel production, and carbon capture and storage.

LanzaTech is one of the three companies we have collaborated with who were recognized by TIME. The company takes the field of carbon capture in a new direction by transforming the captured carbon “into something valuable and useful at scale that directly replaces virgin fossil carbon in consumer goods and sustainable aviation fuel alike.”

TIME interviewed LanzaTech CEO Jennifer Holmgren as one of the innovators on the Climate100 list. She made the case for a new paradigm in approaching the climate crisis: “We can only make a gigatonne impact on climate change when we expand beyond the old paradigm of ‘scaling up’ and focus on ‘numbering up,’ which means local execution on a global scale. For example, distributed systems employing new biorecycling and carbon utilization technologies can be applied to any geography, including the Global South, transforming waste carbon that would otherwise pollute our communities and our homes into sustainable raw materials.”

We invite you to take a look at the TIME100 Climate list to learn more about LanzaTech and others involved in climate-related technology. It’s a wonderful way to end the year on a hopeful note. And as always, we hope you won’t hesitate to contact one of our engineers to discuss your challenging fluid control application.
