Because the climate
Without permanent carbon removal, global efforts to mitigate climate change are in vain. But most carbon removal solutions just don’t work quick enough.
Our technical CDR solutions are taking effect today. Not some time in the distant future.
Remaining CO2 budget
Because we can scale
Our process is not limited by geographics or scarce storage and transportation options for CO2.
Growing year after year: our CO2 removal
+ 15,950 t
The technology we use is called Pyrogenic Carbon Capture and Storage, in short: PyCCS. A smart combination of nature and engineering that transforms CO2 from biogenic residues into regenerative energy and biochar = mainly elemental carbon. Thus carbon is locked for thousands of years.
Leading the biochar market for many years Novocarbo is uniquely positioned to drive the carbon removal market. With the longstanding experience in biochar production and application we have a proven track record of carbon sink’s permanence and safety. Having established one of Europes largest distribution networks since 2018, we enable and can ensure successful CDR.
What we do with biochar
In 2018 Swiss Terra Preta was used to replant the city trees of this central park. The main goal of the blue-green infrastructure project is to protect the lake Geneva – the biochar substrates from our subsidiary Swiss Biochar proved to effectively filter the stormwater pollutants.
We work with different companies and universities to push the application of biochar in concrete. Concrete makes up about 8% of the world's CO2 emissions. Biochar substitutes cement and improves product features.
We are happy to have established a partnership with the leading agricultural trade company in Germany and Austria. This partnership and the network of Beiselen has helped us to make a true impact to push regenerative agriculture.
Our Carbon Credits
The company was one of the pioneers authorized to trade CO2 Removal Credits through Carbonfuture in early 2019 and trade CORCs on the Puro.earth trading platform. Since then, the company has become an integral part of the carbon removal market, which is also why we were part of the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) committee that was put together to establish the first ever Verra biochar methodology in 2022.
