About the Project

Blue Chalk worked with Atoco to create two short films as part of their public debut — a “founders film” that introduces Dr. Omar Yaghi, and a “purpose film” that conveys the company’s driving mission. 

Atoco was a young company with big goals when they came to us. The company was created in part to bring his remarkable discoveries in reticular chemistry out of the lab and into technological applications that improve our lives

Dr. Yaghi and his colleagues created materials that can selectively adsorb certain molecules, such as water and carbon dioxide. Atoco applies this technology to tackle water scarcity and global warming by developing sustainable and transformational atmospheric water harvesting and CO2 capture solutions.
