NeoCarbon is a climate-tech company formed in Berlin in 2021 by René Haas and Silvain Toromanoff, two engineers passionate about ClimateTech, with the goal of combating climate change through carbon capture technology. Our investors include RAISE, SpeedInvest, Proptech1, Antler.

Our innovative and scalable approach utilizes Direct Air Capture (DAC) technology to capture CO2 directly from ambient air. The technology is designed to be efficient and sustainable by leveraging wasted heat from existing industrial sites, such as cooling towers or other sources. Retrofitting existing infrastructure without affecting its original function improves the setup time and cost of a carbon capture system by up to 10 times.

Collaboration is essential for impactful change in Climate Tech. A strong ecosystem, driven by collective expertise, accelerates adoption and innovation. The success of the carbon removal industry depends on unified stakeholder commitment, highlighting open exchanges and a supportive regulatory and financial framework.
