We can still reverse climate change if we act fast, and develop solutions that scale. For our part, we capture and store CO2 permanently by speeding up the natural process of carbon mineralization. And because our technology uses the waste from critical metal mines, it keeps a light footprint while supporting the clean energy transition.
Mines of the future tackle emissions of the past
Our mining partners produce the critical metals needed for the clean energy transition. Together, we develop new ways to decarbonize their operations, enabling them to achieve their environmental and social commitments, and make carbon-negative mining a reality.
True climate leaders leave nothing behind
We work with progressive companies who are taking responsibility for their emissions – past, present and future. For these leaders, we offer scalable carbon dioxide removal that’s always safe, verified and durable.
to rock star
The star of our show is ultramafic rock. Rich in magnesium, it naturally reacts with CO2 in a process known as carbon mineralization, which captures and stores CO2 safely and permanently. But like most things geological, mineralization is slow, and ultramafic rock is typically buried deep below the Earth’s surface.
The clean energy paradox
Decarbonizing our energy systems means more mining, not less. The clean energy transition will require up to 20x more critical metals by 2040. But today, mining is carbon intensive, and the last thing we need is more emissions. Turns out ultramafic mine tailings, which are a byproduct of critical metal mining, have the potential to remove gigatonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere, and make critical metal mining carbon negative. Like physicist Niels Bohr once said: “No paradox, no progress”.
All-natural, just way faster
Our technology significantly accelerates the natural process of carbon mineralization in mine tailings. Building upon decades of research, we’ve developed new ways to transform mine waste into a valuable new resource. This presents an unprecedented opportunity for permanent carbon dioxide sequestration on a gigatonne scale.
Negativity never felt this positive
Critical metal mines not only provide the minerals needed for the energy transition, but have the potential to remove large amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere. With our technology, mines of the future can remove more carbon than they emit, becoming massive carbon sinks. Now there’s something to be positive about.
