permanent CO₂ removal
beccs development platform
the premise of the agreement was for the world to come together to substantially lower carbon emissions from the earths atmosphere. encouraging more support for the deployment of renewables and clean energy solutions was a key focus.
as momentum grew, we witnessed global government intervention and other key initiatives to support the market, whilst the private sector developed a large appetite to allocate capital.
fast forward to 2024, there is still grave concern that we are failing.
can carbon capture & removal be the answer? well, if cop28 is anything to go by, it's plain to see that things are moving in the right direction.
it´s been nearly 10 years since 180 countries signed up to the paris agreement.
permanent sequestration of carbon is the goal
zero 2050 focuses on the bioenergy sector; taking full advantage of what nature based solutions are out there.
we originate opportunities, through our trusted network, concentrating on processes that permanently remove CO₂ from the atmosphere.
what do we mean by permanent carbon removal?
bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) is a carbon capture and climate change mitigation technology that combines the use of bioenergy, such as biofuels or biomass, with the capture and storage
of CO₂ emissions.
this is what our company will be concentrating on.
dac is a method that directly removes CO₂ from the atmosphere, regardless of its source.
dac facilities use large fans to draw in atmospheric air. the captured air is then passed through a chemical solution or sorbent material that binds to the CO₂ , removing it from the air.
direct air capture
reforestation involves planting trees in areas that were previously deforested or degraded, while afforestation involves planting trees in entirely new areas.
mature forests can store carbon for long periods, making these practices effective at permanent carbon removal.
enhanced weathering, also known as mineral weathering, is a carbon capture and storage (CCS) technique that seeks to harness natural geological processes to remove CO₂ from the atmosphere and store it in a stable form.
we will be monitoring developments of this closely.
there are several different approaches to permanent carbon removal; a brief overview is listed below.
biochar; is currently the most commercially viable source of
present-day CO₂ removal solutions, accepted by 3rd party verification agencies.
although there are many more, extremley robust , and commericially viable
beccs processes that our company evaluates.
biochar is a type of charcoal produced from organic materials, such as agricultural and forestry waste, that is used to help with carbon removal and mitigate climate change.
it is a form of carbon sequestration, as biochar is a stable, long-lasting carbon-rich material that can be incorporated into soils.
geological carbon capture and storage (CCS), is a technology designed to capture co2 emissions from industrial processes or power plants and then securely store them underground in geological formations.
it is considered one of the key strategies for mitigating climate change by reducing the release of co2 into the atmosphere.
carbon capture & storage
ocean-based carbon capture and removal (OCCR) refers to a range of strategies and technologies that harness the oceans to capture and sequester co2 from the atmosphere.
these co2 removal techniques
must be done with careful consideration of potential environmental impacts, including changes to local ecosystems.
is a natural process and land management strategy that involves capturing and storing co2 in the soil for extended periods.
soils naturally contain carbon in the form of organic matter, such as plant residues, decomposed vegetation, and the carbon-rich remains of microorganisms.
