Captures CO2 and turns it into stone

Carbfix captures CO2 and turns it into stone underground in less than two years through proprietary technology. The company’s mission is to be a key instrument to tackle the climate crisis and substantially reduce global CO2 emissions. Since 2017, Carbfix has worked in collaboration with Climeworks, a Swiss clean-tech company specializing in direct air capture (DAC) technology. Climeworks developed a small DAC pilot plant (Arctic Fox) next to the Carbfix CO2 mineral storage operations at the Hellisheidi geothermal power plant as a part of the EU funded Carbfix2 project. The power plant supplies renewable energy to the DAC process, whilst Carbfix provides a permanent and safe storage solution for the captured atmospheric CO2.

Injecting carbonated water into underground rocks

44.01 mineralizes carbon dioxide in peridotite rocks by pumping carbonated water into seams of peridotite deep underground. Its first project will mineralize 1,000 tonnes of locally captured carbon dioxide annually until 2024, with plans to scale up its technology to millions of tonnes.
