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.
