Carbo Culture takes biomass, or carbon that's been drawn down by plants from the atmosphere, and converts it into an ultra-stable material called biochar. What sets the company apart from other biochar firms is its re-engineering of biochar technology to scale.
Carbo Culture puts special focus on the permanence of the biochar (how long the carbon will be stored on earth), as well as the scalability of the machinery (how easy is it to build thousands of machines). The firm believes that this quality-first focus is the best way to effectively fight climate change.
The woman-led, Finnish-Californian company is currently scaling this biochar technology at their R&D site in California, with an eye on their next big goal: building one of Europe’s largest carbon drawdown facilities, located in Finland. You can pre-purchase carbon credits from this upcoming facility today.
Carbo Culture’s credits have been verified by puro.earth.
Located in Central Finland, Finland
Heating waste biomass in the absence of oxygen to produce carbon-rich biochar, which is highly stable and can sequester carbon in soil when applied as a soil enhancer.
