Carbon Neutrality as a Service.

Don’t just offset, Neutralise

Carbon offsets are better than nothing, but they are complicated, indirect, and take a long time to work.

We use Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technologies to directly suck out carbon from the air and put it back in the ground where it came from.

There are just three steps to true Carbon Neutrality

 

Calculate.

SaaS platform? Two-sided marketplace? Hardware? Every type of company will have unique ways in which their activities result in carbon emissions.

We help you assess the amount of CO2 produced from your activities.

Neutralise.

Neutralise your historic emissions or start from now. We explore different types of carbon capture, and find a balance between your goals and the cost.

Every action matters.

Communicate.

We support you in making a plan for strategically communicating their initiative to stakeholders.

Become a leader in the fight reverse climate change.

Our first pilot companies are already removing CO2 from the atmosphere.

Get started today

Whether you already know how much you want to offset or need to talk to us first, we can get started right now.

In our first version, we are super hands-on in calculating your carbon footprint. It the future, we plan to make this much more automated.

About Carbon Capture

There are a few things to understand about Carbon Capture. Get a quick overview of what it is, how it’s captured, and what’s done with it after.

Methods of Carbon Capture

We use a combination of two types of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) in order to maximise our impact while being able to offer attractive pricing. 

Direct Air Capture (DAC)

Direct air capture (DAC) is a process of capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) directly from the air (as opposed to capturing from point sources, such as a cement factory or power plant) and generating a concentrated stream of CO2 for storage or utilization.

DAC is very promising but also young technology. The cost of capturing a ton of Carbon is relatively high.

If you want to learn about DAC, The IEA has a great resource on the topic.

Our first partner for DAC is the Swiss company Climeworks

Sequestration (Soil)

Carbon sequestration is the long-term removal, capture or sequestration of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to slow or reverse atmospheric CO2 pollution and to mitigate or reverse global warming.

At Klimate, we are partnering with multiple suppliers for sequestration through Soil Carbon Storage. This refers to techniques that can increase the amount of carbon stored in soils on agricultural and managed lands. 

This progress is less cost-intensive than DAC, but more direct than working with ie. deforestation or reforestation. 

Klimate: Combining methods

Suppliers of Carbon capture are technology-focused. Even within specific types, each company has a their specific approach which they are championing. 

At Klimate, we believe that we need to help drive all the technologies forward. At the same time, our thesis is that if we can combine the methods based on cost, we will be able to offer a price-point that can compete with Quotas and off-sets, while trulu removing carbon from the atmosphere and driving the technology forward. 

 

Storage or utilisation?

Carbon Capture is also generally split up in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU)

CCU has the advantage that you can make—and sell—products from the CO2 that has been captured. This can be anything from adding bubbles to soda to making jet fuel. By selling products, you can lower the price of the Carbon Capture. However, the carbon is still released back into the atmosphere.

CCU is better than extracting new CO2, but it still has a risk of “double counting”. Ie, if we sold Carbon Capture to neutralise your company, you would count yourself neutral. If we then made jet fuel and sold it to an airline, they would also count themselves as neutral. 

To avoid this, we are opting for storage, putting the carbon permanently back in the ground where it came from.
