Crusoe Energy Systems Mitigates Emissions

Crusoe Energy Systems LLC, a vertically integrated AI infrastructure company, announced it avoided over 680,000 metric tons of GHG emissions through the scaling of its Digital Flare Mitigation® technology in the U.S.

The company’s Crusoe® Cloud is its AI cloud computing platform powered by its Digital Flare Mitigation® (DFM) technology and renewable energy. The DFM system converts flared natural gas into electricity to power computing infrastructure. Flared natural gas is a by-product of oil production that is burned off and wasted when it cannot get to market due to limited pipeline capacity.

As announced in its 2023 Impact Report, Crusoe's DFM tech is being used at 33 sites across six states, including 12 new deployments; collectively prevented over 5.4 billion cubic feet of natural gas from being flared; and avoided over 8,500 metric tons of methane emissions.

Additionally, the company announced generating over 635,000 MWh of electricity by harnessing stranded energy.

Crusoe is developing and incorporating other clean energy sources, including stranded renewable energy through its Digital Renewable Optimization® approach.

“Building responsible, reliable AI infrastructure requires unwavering investment in our ESG goals,” said Crusoe’s co-founder and CEO Chase Lochmiller in a statement. “As the world’s only carbon reducing computing company—we invest in the growth of our people, the environmental impact of our products, and the communities where we work. Last year, we were true to our mission to align the future of computing with the future of the climate by reducing emissions, building a democratized AI cloud platform, and supporting our workforce. And we know our work is just beginning.”
