A London startup that uses simple chemistry and off-the-shelf equipment to suck planet-warming carbon dioxide out of the air raised one of the largest funding rounds for a carbon-removal startup based in the UK.

Breakthrough Energy Ventures, a fund led by Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bill Gates, and mining company Anglo American Plc invested $5 million to help Mission Zero Technologies develop its technology.
