For climate and people, now.

About NetZero

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.

This allows us to generate high-quality carbon credits, which also include the many co-benefits provided with our model, such as increased crop yields through biochar use in soils, and production of renewable electricity from the excess energy of pyrolysis.

NetZero’s mission is to bring biochar at scale in the tropics - for climate and people, now.

NetZero simultaneously tackles 3 pressing challenges


Fighting climate change

  • Long-term, measurable and certified carbon removal
  • Avoided greenhouse gas emissions

Promoting sustainable agriculture

  • Improved quality of soils
  • Increased yields and income for farmers
  • Reduced use of synthetic fertilisers

Improving energy access

  • Production of green electricity
  • Optional production of renewable heat instead of electricity
