Carbon Removal Methods

Puro CORCs (CO2 Removal Certificates) are based on 3 science-based quantification methodologies that remove CO2 at an industrial scale.

 

Science-based – certificates must represent the real CO2 removed from the atmosphere. Our verification process requires scientific measurement and quantification of the removed carbon. So far, we have identified three carbon removal methods that have significant volume potential and where costs are reasonable. CO2 Removal Certificates (CORCs) are issued for each metric ton of CO2 equivalent.

How to buy CORCs

 

Biochar

A very stable, solid form of carbon that can endure in soil for thousands of years, making it an ideal technology for scalable carbon removal.

It has multiple commercial uses at potentially industrial volumes, for example, as greenhouse additive, in soil regeneration and in wastewater treatment. It is produced from biomass or biowaste, through pyrolysis (heated in the absence of oxygen).

Carbonated Building elements

Manufactured concrete-like building elements from steel slag (waste material from steel industry) instead of traditional cement. Basically, it’s CO2 negative concrete that removes more CO2 than its production emits.

During the hardening phase CO2 is chemically bound and mineralised permanently into the building element. Benefits of the method include easy measurability and storage of CO2 for good.

 

 

Wooden Building Elements

Growing trees capture carbon but the carbon may go back to circulation if the trees are cut, decompose or are used for paper or energy. Carbon removal is considered long term when it’s stored in wooden building elements.

In Europe, buildings are regulated to have a minimum lifetime of 50 years, and in real life the CO2 storage is likely to be longer. By storing CO2 for a minimum of 50 years, wooden building elements present an opportunity for companies to invest in carbon capture and storage, and take proactive steps towards carbon neutrality.
