Novocarbo is driving decarbonization with a unique concept: The German company operates Carbon Removal Parks that will enable it to remove up to 1 million tonnes of CO₂ from the atmosphere by 2030. Using modern pyrolysis technology, Novocarbo processes plant residues into biochar.

The carbon present in the biomass is bound and stored in the biochar. The biochar has a variety of positive effects in agriculture, in the construction or textile industry. The pyrolysis process also produces regenerative, climate-neutral excess energy. This can be offered to companies or municipal utilities in the form of “heat-as-a-service” partnerships. As a pioneer in the trading of carbon removal certificates, Novocarbo plays a leading role in the development of Biochar Carbon Removal solutions in Europe.

“Net zero is not a zero-sum game. Only by cooperating across companies and sectors, by thinking of resources and innovations as complementary, and by further building collaborations, can we achieve climate neutrality goal. We need a strong ecosystem with all relevant stakeholders on board.”

Julius Lang, Political Communications Manager
