NetZero's mission is to bring biochar at scale in the tropics – for climate and people, now.
Biochar is essentially solid atmospheric carbon extracted from plant residues and buried in the soil. It is a scientifically proven way to perform high-permanence carbon removal from the atmosphere while durably improving soil quality, allowing for higher yields and lower fertiliser use in agriculture.
Our unique model makes biochar affordable for farmers, helps companies neutralise their unavoidable emissions, and co-generates renewable energy – all at once.
NetZero is a Milestone Award winner of Musk Foundation's XPRIZE Carbon Removal competition, a recipient of the ‘Efficient Solution’ label from Solar Impulse Foundation, a Green Tech prize winner of the Tech for Good Awards, and a certified carbon-removal project under the Puro Standard.
To make sure we do not contribute to tropical deforestation, our policy is to rule out forest biomass altogether as a feedstock.
While we could make our model more profitable, we choose not to do so to maximise social and environmental co-benefits locally.
The carbon credits we generate by removing carbon from the atmosphere are only sold to clients with very serious net-zero commitments.
