Making Climate Change History™

WHO WE ARE

Carbon America was created to transform the carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) industry by lowering costs and rapidly increasing deployment. 

Our mission is to capture and sequester as much carbon dioxide as possible, as quickly as possible. 

To achieve this we have built a team combining world class engineers, developers, and financiers into a vertically integrated CCS company.

THE 

CHALLENGE

Currently the world emits about 36 billion metric tons of additional CO₂ into the atmosphere every year, double the emissions from 1990.

By 2030, if we don’t radically reduce emissions, we will use up the remaining carbon budget. To keep global temperature rise under 1.5° C, we must electrify as much as possible, convert to renewables as quickly as possible, AND capture billions of metric tons of CO₂ from industrial sources annually.

Climate change projections show we need to capture 800 gigatons of CO₂. This requires hundreds of billions of dollars in investments every year – a new industry in the making.

WHAT WE DO

At Carbon America, we are passionate about creating profitable, near term business solutions to the CO₂ challenge. Our world-class team has proven engineering, design, and project delivery experience, as well as deep experience in project development and tax equity project financing. We are positioned to start fast and profitable, grow rapidly, and reduce costs to expand markets.

Our experience integrating deep technical analysis with low cost fabrication approaches allows us to choose the best technology for the job, marrying the speed of execution and lower cost, ultimately providing out-sized returns.

This makes us a dependable, efficient, and responsive partner for capture, transportation and sequestration of CO₂. We are a one-stop shop for CO₂ solutions.

We are committed to finding solutions in a manner that creates value for all stakeholders involved – CO₂ emitters, storage facilities and EOR operators, investors, regulators, and society.
