Pioneering direct air capture technology to save life on Earth as we know it

The unprecedented challenges facing the world’s climate require out of the box thinking and international collaboration unseen before.

Our environment has reached peak carbon. The current concentration of atmospheric CO2 is higher than at any point in at least the last 800,000 years - a time where sea-levels were 100 feet higher than they are today. It is safe to say that we have maxed out our carbon credit card and are already living on borrowed time. We’ve indulged in our fossil fuel addiction for so long that just stopping burning fossil fuels is no longer enough to avoid climate catastrophe. We need to completely reimagine the building blocks of modern society for today, tomorrow and for generations to come.

Carbon Infinity is developing technologies to take CO2 out of the atmosphere, close the carbon cycle, and rebuild the foundations of the global economy from the molecule up. Every industry must adapt to a post-fossil world or be resigned to the books of extinction. Founded with a mission to de-fossilise the industrial economy and transform the material world, Carbon Infinity is helping redefine what is possible with air, sun and water; using our direct air capture technology to enable net zero fuels for shipping and aviation, carbon negative concrete, and fossil-free petrochemicals which you are unknowingly using every day.

The net zero transition is not up for debate or carve-outs for hard to decarbonise industries. Nothing about this is easy, which is why we are assembling the world’s best team of scientists, engineers, designers and everything in-between to bring cost-effective direct air capture to the world and facilitate the fourth industrial revolution. Building the future of humanity isn’t about us, but for those who aren’t around yet to read this. 

We at Carbon Infinity recognise there is no playbook for the climate challenge we face as a species. Everything and everyone has a role to play; from the latest advances in computing technologies, synthetic chemistry and biomimicry, to students fighting for climate justice, the collective action of employees, and the perspective of older generations. Pessimism about climate action is the best friend of the status quo. All solutions must be on the table, we simply can’t afford to imagine what comes next.   

Let’s get to work.
