SK Group has announced a $100 million investment in 8 Rivers Capital, LLC, as well as the formation of an 8 Rivers-SK joint venture to focus on decarbonization in Korean and important Asian markets.

With this investment, 8 Rivers becomes the world’s leading Net Zero solutions provider for industrial decarbonization, with breakthrough solutions that are available for deployment today and will help drive global decarbonization through 2050.

IHS Markit announced the investment at S&P Global’s CERA Week, and it is one of the largest single private investments in a carbon capture systems supplier to date.
