New $1.25M grant from the B.C. Centre for Innovation and Clean Energy
CICE has provided us with a CDN$1.25M grant to capture atmospheric CO2 and transform it into rock. The funding will be used to support a pilot project that begins today for air-to-rock carbon mineralization using the mine tailings in BHP’s Mt Keith Nickel West Mine in Australia.
We’re expanding our global footprint
We’re now working on three continents with companies like Vale, Talon Metals, Poseidon Nickel, NickelSearch, and Blackstone Minerals to capture and permanently store CO2 in mine tailings.
Arca is honoured with a 2023 CICE Changemaker Award
The B.C. Centre for Innovation and Clean Energy honoured innovators across battery technology and energy storage, carbon management, low carbon hydrogen, and low carbon fuels for the high impact decarbonization potential of their clean energy and climate solutions.
Arca is named to Foresight 50 list for 2023
The award sets out to highlight “Canada’s most investable cleantech ventures who are driving the transition to net zero.”

Frontier selects Arca in largest carbon removal purchase round
Frontier announced that it has facilitated $11M of carbon removal purchases, its largest round to date, from seven companies, including Arca (previously Carbin Minerals), on behalf of Stripe and Shopify.
Carbin Minerals is now Arca – a new identity and bold mission to restore the Earth’s atmosphere
Carbin Minerals has unveiled a new brand identity and name – “Arca”. The update reflects the evolution of the company from its academic roots at the University of British Columbia to becoming the market leader in carbon mineralization.
Carbin Minerals wins $1 million milestone award from XPRIZE and the Musk Foundation
The XPRIZE Carbon Removal competition was launched to encourage carbon removal innovators to work on tackling the biggest threat facing humanity: fighting climate change and rebalancing Earth’s carbon cycle.

Carbin Minerals is listed to the Foresight 50, a group of cleantech ventures who are solving the most pressing global climate issues with made-in-Canada solutions.
Shopify’s Sustainability Fund Partners With Vancouver’s Carbin Minerals
Shopify announced new partnerships with nine entrepreneurial, climate-forward trailblazers through its Sustainability Fund, bringing their total carbon removal purchase commitment to $32 million. One of the newly added partners is Vancouver’s own Carbin Minerals.
Arca tests removing carbon dioxide at BHP’s nickel mine in Australia
Arca Climate Technologies Inc. is testing its system for carbon dioxide removal at BHP Group Ltd.’s nickel mine in Australia, launching a pilot project to decarbonize processing of the critical mineral. The aim is to transform the tailings, and then capture and store carbon in rock material on the mining site, before land reclamation.
Arca Partners With Nickel Producers On Three Continents On Carbon Capture
Canadian carbon capture company Arca has said it is working with nickel producers, including Brazil’s Vale, US-based Talon Metals, and Australia’s Poseidon Nickel, NickelSearch and Blackstone Minerals, to advance carbon dioxide (CO2) removal at mine sites on three continents.
Carbon mineralisation: ARCA expands global footprint
Arca has announced it is working with nickel producers, a critical metal for the clean energy transition, to advance carbon dioxide removal at mine sites on three continents.
Arca removes carbon dioxide from our atmosphere, one mine at a time
The climatetech startup is figuring out how to both create a company and create a market for its product.
A pathway to carbon-negative mining
The clean energy transition will require up to 20 times more critical minerals by 2040. More mining means more emissions. The experts from Arca may have the answer to that question.
Mining is a polluting business. Can new tech make it cleaner?
Mining will always have environmental impacts, but new approaches could help reduce them as the world digs up more metals for renewable energy.
Carbon capture company founded by UBC geologists wins $1M international funding prize
Carbin Minerals Inc. has figured out how to speed up the mineralization of carbon dioxide in rocks.
Mines can become “huge carbon sinks,” UBC researchers say
Carbin Minerals, founded by Dr. Greg Dipple, Bethany Ladd, and Dr. Peter Scheuermann, is a carbon-capture company that partners with mines and uses their technology to turn tailings ponds into “huge carbon sinks.”
More low-carbon nickel the plea for 2022
Carbin Minerals is developing a technology that directly sponges CO2 out of the atmosphere into the tailings left behind from mining nickel, cobalt, and other metals.
