NetZero® is a climate venture specialising in long-term carbon removal from the atmosphere We turn agricultural residues into biochar, a very stable form of carbon. The process is as follows: plants capture carbon during photosynthesis; we extract and stabilise this carbon through a pyrolysis process; the resulting biochar is buried in the soil, safely storing the carbon out of the atmosphere for hundreds of years The long-term carbon-removal effect of biochar allows to generate high-quality carbon credits with strong social co-benefits in agriculture and access to energy We operate a unique model, leveraging proven technologies and own R&D, that maximises social and climate impact, optimises our economics and allows for scale Our ambition is to be annually removing over 1 million tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere before 2030 We completed 2 financing rounds in 2021 and finalised the building our first full- scale production facility in Cameroon in October.
