Carbon Removal Park

Grevesmühlen, Germany

One of Germany’s largest carbon removal parks

Novocarbo builds and operates carbon removal parks worldwide, pursuing the goal of removing 1 million tons of CO2 from the atmosphere by 2030. The Carbon Removal Park in the Baltic Sea is our largest site to date and a unique example in Germany of a holistic approach to CO2 removal and green heat generation. We use state-of-the-art pyrolysis technology to process plant residues into biochar.
Country: Germany
Status: Operational
Type: Biochar

Planeteers GmbH

University of Hamburg, Mittelweg, Eimsbüttel, Germany

Reactor-based ocean alkalinity enhancement

We exploit CO2 from wastewater treatment facilities, mix it with water and limestone. During the reaction, CO2 is consumed and trapped as alkaline solution. Afterwards, the solution is diluted until it is uncritical for the local aquatic system and discharged into river estuaries or oceans.
Country: Germany
Status: In Development
Type: Ocean Alkalinity Enhancement

Carbon Drawdown Initiative

Fürth, Germany

Extensive greenhouse experiment to investigate MRV approaches for rock weathering.

In their extensive greenhouse experiment, the carbon drawdown initiative is trying to find ways to measure the CDR effects caused by adding rock dust to agricultural soils on short timescales (months to years). Overall, they record 4.5 million data points per day. Their mission is to find a short term (month/years) measuerment approach for ERW.
Country: Germany
Status: Operational
Type: Enhanced Rock Weathering

ecoLocked

Spandauer Straße / Grunerstraße, 10178 Berlin, Germany
ecoLocked is turning buildings into carbon sinks. We convert captured carbon from waste biomass (biochar) into powerful, carbon-negative construction materials. Our products permanently store CO2 in the built environment, reduce the need for fossil raw materials, and deliver material performance improvements in areas like insulation, durability and production efficiency. We just released our first product, an additive to create 100% carbon-neutral concrete (ready-mixed & precast). The video below shows an example project with ready-mixed concrete.
Country: Germany
Status: Operational
Type: Biochar
