Capwell started out as a senior design project at the University of Pennsylvania in 2021. Our teammate, Walter, told us about a problem he had come across in his hometown of Pittsburgh: abandoned and orphaned oil & gas wells. We spoke with industry experts in the government, the private sector, and academia to understand what was currently done and how we could improve it. What we came up with is Capwell: a modular, portable, and inexpensive solution to eliminate methane emissions from these wells.
In the two years since launching, we’ve made great progress raising funding, building our solution, and piloting it. We are now commercializing our system and are excited to launch it soon for businesses and governments to use!
