Welcome to our February Newsletter!

Great to have you on board our mission to sequester gigatons of CO‚āā with natural

rock powder! ūüíöūü™®¬†

We have been selected by Frontier Climate!

After an extensive application process with tough competition, Frontier, consisting of McKinsey, Stripe, Meta, Alphabet, and Shopify, finally announced that we were selected to remove a substantial amount of carbon from the air.

The project involves spreading 8.000 tons of rock powder in 2023 and generating unique scientific data on the weathering progress in the tropics. Our COO Niklas is currently visiting farmers and taking soil samples to pick the optimal areas.

Frontier is an Advanced Market Commitment that connects leading climate researchers with start-up companies and corporates to speed up the development of high-quality carbon removal technologies.
