Climate change is the biggest challenge of our generation and has to be solved urgently. We are inspired by the beauty of this planet. It is the only one we have.

Our vision is to sequester 1 GT of CO2 while regenerating tropical soils to create a livable planet with nutritious food and healthy ecosystems for future generations.

About Us

We are InPlanet, an energetic and optimistic team of passionate individuals with a hands-on attitude. Our shared love for the planet motivates us to fight climate change and develop more harmonious ways to interact with our precious ecosystems.

We are convinced that Enhanced Rock Weathering is one of the most important solutions to combat global warming and stabilize our climate. By grinding silicate rocks and spreading them on tropical soil, the natural weathering process is accelerated by many magnitudes. Carbon is then captured for more than 1000 years, locked into the long-term, geologic carbon cycle.

We work closely together with farmers to restore their soils and help them to transition to a low carbon, sustainable and nature-based agriculture. Our silicate rock powders contain many fresh minerals, which make them a natural, long-term fertilizer. They allow farmers to substitute conventional fertilizers, pesticides, and limestone. 

We currently focus on Brazil, where the soil and climate are optimal for fast and effective weathering. The mineral-depleted tropical soils do significantly benefit from the rock powder applications. In the future, we will explore other markets within the global tropics for the application of rock powder for enhanced weathering.

InPlanet is hiring!
