DAC was launched by a group of gas & thermodynamics experts holding years of experience in fundamental research, technology development & product commercialization. Team members have published 98+ scientific papers & submitted 25+ patent applications. DAC technology is the result of an extensive 6-year R&D effort during which time the team received significant support and validation from organizations incorporated under the Ukrainian National Academy of Sciences.
Our team shares a common passion and vision to establish DAC technology as the leading sustainable AC/refrigeration technology as part of the global effort to fight against Climate Change.
