The IPCC reports that, when deployed at a global scale, biochar could remove every year up to 2 billion tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere.
We have very ambitious growth plans to bring biochar at scale. Our goal is to reach, by 2030, a removal capacity of 2 million tonnes of CO2 per year, and to continue our expansion beyond.
We focus on tropical developing countries for 3 main reasons.
Therefore, our geographic approach maximises biochar's agricultural and social impact, while optimising our economics.
While pyrolysis is a well-known technology, long mastered industrially, there are many areas of potential improvement to optimise biochar production along NetZero's model.
We have launched an ambitious R&D programme to optimise the underlying technologies, to simplify installation and operations, and to ensure we meet the highest standards of reliability, quality, and security.
NetZero aims at forging long-lasting partnerships with companies serious about their net-zero trajectory, in particular those active in the agri value chain in tropical developing countries. Through these partnerships, we seek to maximise the climate and social impact of our model, and facilitate our geographical expansion.
We are also partnering with research institutes to further study biochar in a wide range of agronomic conditions.
