Why carbon removal?

Real net zero requires carbon removal

A lot of companies rely on avoided emissions for offsetting their emissions. Typically credits from renewable energy or cookstoves which result in a reduction of a future emission, but the Net Emission is still the same.

When using carbon removal, you are actively taking CO from the atmosphere, and if you remove more than you emmit, your company is Net Zero.

Learn more about carbon removal methods below.

Most offsets available today are emission reductions, which are necesary but not sufficiant to achieve net zero in the long run.

The Oxford Principles for Net Zero Aligned Carbon Offsetting

Reaching net-zero emissions requires neutralizing a company’s residual GHG emissions with an equivalent amount of carbon removals.

Science-based Targets initiative

Meeting international climate goals, including net-zero emissions, will almost certainly require some form of carbon removal.

Removal methods

How we remove CO₂ from the atmosphere

Direct Air Capture

€€€EUR 700-900 / Ton

Direct Air Capture uses large fan-like machines to pull CO directly out of the atmosphere. Captured CO can either be stored permanently in rock formations underneath the earth’s surface or reused for other materials.

Bio-Oil

€€€EUR 500-600 / Ton

By heating up biomass to extremely high temperatures without oxygen, carbon is locked up in bio-oil. This carbon-rich material can then either be stored away permanently underground or be refined and used as a green energy source.

Biochar

€€EUR 100-190 / Ton

Heating waste biomass to high temperatures without oxygen turns it into carbon-rich biochar. Applied to soils, biochar is great for storing carbon for a long time while simultaneously increasing agricultural productivity.

Soil Sequestration

EUR 10-30 / Ton

Soils are great at capturing carbon, but the overuse of soils over the past decades has reduced their ability to do so. Diverse techniques can optimize and help regain the carbon-capturing properties of soils.

Forestation

EUR 5-30 / Ton

Trees are the earth’s natural carbon removal machines. Trees sequester CO₂ using photosynthesis and store it in every part of the tree. A single tree can capture up to a ton of CO₂ in its lifetime.

Enhanced weathering

Coming Soon

Enhanced weathering is a nature-based carbon removal solution that enhances CO₂ absorption by the ocean. When applying olivine-containing rock onto coastlines, it dissolves in seawater, which increases ocean's CO₂ uptake.

Thorough analysis ensures the

highest-quality carbon removal

Impact

Climate impact

We evaluate the permanence and rapidity of carbon removal projects to determine the impact they have on climate change.

Permanence

Carbon removal projects reduce climate change by removing atmospheric CO₂, storing it in reservoirs, and preventing it from being re-emitted. The more permanent a removal is, the longer it keeps carbon locked away in reservoirs.

Rapidity

The time period between emissions occurring and carbon removal projects sequestering those emissions (in various reservoirs) affects how much emissions contribute to climate change. Faster reductions means less warming from CO₂.

Impact

Co-benefits

Beyond carbon removal, we evaluate the social and environmental benefits that carbon removal projects generate.

Environment

Carbon removal projects can generate environmental benefits, such as biodiversity or clean air. But they can also cause environmental harms, such as waste, pollution, or biodiversity loss. Both aspects must be considered.

Social

Resulting from its activities, carbon removal projects can generate social benefits, such as jobs and welfare. But they can also cause social harms, such as loss of livelihoods or noise pollution. Both aspects must be considered.

Integrity

Validation

We analyse the accounting and verification procedures of carbon removal projects to ensure sound and credible projects.

Carbon Accounting

Systems to monitor, measure, and report on CO₂ emissions enables carbon removal projects to account for the carbon removed. This enables traceability and fosters transparency, building credibility in carbon removal projects.

Verification

Carbon removal projects must have procedures in place to ensure and verify that CO₂ emissions are removed. This can be certification standards, such as Gold Standard, or various internal or tailored solutions, such as blockchain.

Integrity

Outlook

We analyse the potential benefits and risks of the carbon removal projects and technologies to future-proof your investments.

Potential

Carbon removal projects differ on many fronts, utilising nature-based, technical or hybrid solutions. These differences cause projects and technologies to have different potentials for scale and scope, which should be considered.

Risk

Carbon removal projects carry inherent risks, both natural and man-made. These must be evaluated and mitigated to ensure the lowest possible risk of carbon removal projects not delivering on their promise of removing CO₂.
