Carbon removal technology is a key factor in combating the ongoing climate crisis. Carbonfuture, a MRV platform and carbon credit marketplace, has partnered with Indo-Danish company MASH Makes to secure 50,000 tonnes of carbon removal, the largest carbon removal purchase agreement to date. This technology developed by MASH Makes uses crop residues as feedstock for its fuel production process, which is heated in a controlled environment through a process called pyrolysis. This not only powers the fuel production process, but also results in the carbon being sequestered as biochar, which has a range of benefits beyond the long-term sequestration of carbon. Carbonfuture’s digitized platform enables companies to monitor their carbon removal purchase in accordance with rigorous independent standards of MRV, and the resulting carbon removal credits can then be traded on Carbonfuture’s integrated marketplace. The potential of carbon removal technology is evident, with the US government recently investing $4bn in CDR initiatives. The partnership between Carbonfuture and MASH Makes is a big step in the right direction towards achieving gigatonne removals and shows that this technology will be part of the climate action toolkit.
