Carbon Dioxide Removal

Climate science is clear – to limit global warming to 1.5˚C and avoid the worst impacts of climate change, we must reduce emissions 'at source' with a rapid and far-reaching energy transition, and we must also use large-scale carbon dioxide removal to pull CO2 back out of the atmosphere. We’ll need a whole suite of solutions that deliver both deep emissions reductions and verifiable carbon removal. Technologies like Direct Air Capture – that pull large quantities of CO2 directly out of the air – will play a critical role.
All pathways that limit global warming to 1.5˚C… project the use of carbon dioxide removal on the order of 100-1000 gigatons over the 21st century.”

Developing a plan for net zero? We can help.

To align with Paris climate commitments, companies and governments must create net zero plans and start rapidly decarbonizing. The good news is that achieving net zero is possible and affordable with the tools we have available today. By combining a thorough emissions reductions strategy with permanent carbon removal, your organization can deliver a sustainability portfolio that will meet or exceed net zero targets.

Most carbon offsets offer credits for claiming to avoid a new emission elsewhere. Carbon removal through Direct Air Capture and geological storage delivers the physical removal of your CO2 from the air, reversing your emission. This allows any CO2 emission to be eliminated at whatever scale the world needs. When combined with the reduction of your emissions, it can be used to address your organization’s most difficult sources of emissions, making net zero achievable. It also offers a reliable way to remove your emissions from the past – providing a tool to achieve not just net zero, but also full climate restoration.

If your organization is working towards reduced, net zero, or net negative emissions, our carbon removal service makes it easy to include high-quality, permanent carbon dioxide removal in your sustainability strategy – today.

How it works

Through our easy, four-step process, your organization can reserve capacity from a facility that will capture and permanently store atmospheric CO2 using Carbon Engineering’s Direct Air Capture technology and standalone geological storage.

  1. Sign a simple agreement
    Choose the quantity of carbon removal that fits your sustainability goals and sign our cooperation agreement.
  2. Pre-pay a small deposit
    To secure your permanent carbon dioxide removal, pay a small portion of your purchase as a deposit.
  3. Carbon dioxide is removed
    Once the Direct Air Capture project is ready, finalize your purchase agreement and timeline. The CO2 is then removed from the atmosphere and permanently stored.
  4. Pay the balance
    Receive independent verification of your permanent carbon dioxide removal and pay the balance to complete the process.

Founding Customers
In most ways, the climate crisis plays out as a tragedy of the commons, where parties undermine a common good by acting in their narrow self-interests. But… making the independent decision to be an early adopter—regardless of what other parties do—enables a company to create significant benefits for itself and the world.” We Need True Net Zero, and it Needs Early Adopters, BCG

Founding customers of our carbon removal service will play a critical role in kickstarting the Direct Air Capture industry by generating market demand, driving down prices, and helping us show the world what this technology can do. Learn about these climate leaders below, and if your organization wants to help us #kickstartDAC by becoming a #CEfoundingcustomer, please get in touch.

Leading global commerce company, Shopify, is CE’s first founding customer for our permanent carbon dioxide removal service.
