We are a climate technology company with a breakthrough, scalable carbon removal solution. By leveraging advanced engineering techniques, we convert biomass into carbon that is then captured and stored for 1000+ years. Our vision is to remove 1 billion tons (1Gt) of CO2 annually from the atmosphere.
Support Carbo Culture's next-generation reactor, our first commercial-scale facility!
Biochar is one of the safest, fastest, and most durable ways to draw down carbon today, according to the IPCC. Researchers estimate the carbon-removal potential of biochar at 300 megatons to two gigatons annually (Nature 11/2019). However, the technical limitations of existing carbon removal and storage technologies have hindered the development of an affordable and scalable solution. We change that.
Carbo Culture’s game-changing carbon removal solution converts biomass to biochar, storing CO2 for a 1000+ years in a virtually indestructible way, while also generating renewable energy from the production process. Each ton of our biochar holds 3.2 tons of CO2. We use ultra-local agricultural residue material in our biochar production. We also hold a patent on the technology for instantaneous conversion from biomass to conductive biochar, resulting in more energy-efficient biochar production than existing solutions.
Our next-generation reactor will be the culmination of 4 years of engineering, a NASA workshop, and StartX acceleration. With a capacity of 18,000 tons of CO2e p.a. the reactor will set a new standard for carbon removal, providing a facility that is a climate-change busting machine. The biochar will be of the highest quality and will achieve top certification from the Ithaka Institute, the provider of the European Biochar Certificate. Working with our distribution partners, we will ensure that the ultra-stable material is stored safely for 1000+ years. Once our next-generation reactor is built, we will rapidly scale the new reactor type globally.
Turn net zero targets into scalable impact by supporting this new generation of carbon removal.
Carbo Culture makes functional biocarbons and biographite from waste to keep CO2 out of the atmosphere.
We’re working with green and blue infrastructure and carbon-negative materials developers to start a new era of Carbon Culturing.
Our founders met in Singularity University’s Global Solutions Program. They believed that if climate change is not addressed, it will make worse other global challenges as well. Carbo Culture began in 2017. We’re proud alumni of StartX and currently part of the Autodesk SF Technology Center residency program.
We look forward to welcoming ambitious and dedicated people on board as partners to tackle climate change with us.
