Feeling down about the environment? Need a drink to take the edge off? Air Company has a crisp, clean solution for both of your problems: Air Vodka.
Launched in 2019, and now bolstered by a completely new round of funding that will push production levels, Air Company has a focus on creating products with carbon dioxide emissions, which are responsible for 79 percent of greenhouse gasses produced through human activities as of 2020, according to the U.S. Environmental Protective Agency. So far, its Air Vodka product has seen the most traction with backing from companies like JetBlue Airways and Toyota.
Through its carbon conversion technology, Air Company removes the impurities often found in alcohol by capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions that would otherwise pollute Earth. From there, it converts the CO2 emissions into ethanol in water, free from all solids or other constituents you’d normally find in the fermentation process. The result is a high-end 40 percent alcohol-by-volume vodka sold across the country and in bars from New York to San Francisco.
Air Company aims to use carbon technology to demonstrate a potential in removing and repurposing CO2 before it hits the atmosphere. The company’s New York base offers proprietary technology it claims will serve as a “blueprint for carbon tech solutions globally.” The brand recently expanded beyond vodka into sanitizer and perfume and remains engaged in a project with NASA to create CO2-based sugars and proteins.
