Our northstar mission is to remove 1 billion tons of carbon dioxide.

In the process, we’re decarbonising energy and soil inputs. For each ton of removed , we estimate at least a double amount of emissions are limited through emission reduction in soil inputs, replacing heavy emitting construction materials and providing clean energy.

Urgently reducing is of utmost importance, but today not enough to prevent global temperature rises – in addition, we need carbon dioxide to be removed from the atmosphere with natural and hybrid-technological solutions. Most methods of carbon removal are limited by their technological scalability. At Carbo Culture, we have leveraged natural processes with advanced engineering to create a rapidly scalable solution. We are a project developer with proprietary climate technology on a mission to remove 1 billion tons of carbon dioxide.

Our founders joined forces in 2013 at Singularity University at the NASA Ames Research Centre, where they began to develop a novel carbon removal solution based on a decade of academic research. The company got started in 2018 with initial funding and the R1 reactor prototype assembly. We are also proud alumni of Stanford’s founder community StartX batch SS 2019 and since then, our team has grown into a highly motivated group of engineers, climate experts and change makers. With decades of combined experience, our experts and industry veterans are working together to achieve our mission.
