Splash: Maersk Drilling invests in new Carbon-Negative Energy

"Maersk Drilling is investing $1m in a California biomass company to help offset its emissions. Maersk Drilling has tied up with Clean Energy Systems to help develop a new technology called Carbon-Negative Energy. The concept builds on technology originally developed for the aerospace industry, which is now being deployed in a process that is expected to result in net-negative carbon emissions."
