In an interview by Change Inc. our CEO Hans De Neve explained why negative emissions are needed and how Carbyon’s direct air capture solution can help to achieve this while also being a sustainable alternative for hard-to-abate sectors like aviation. To read the complete article, click here.
We did it again: growing our team with a supertalent eager to build the next generation of #carbonremoval technology!
A warm welcome to Gerben van Straaten, with Dutch flowers of course... We were blown away by your postdoc work at Eindhoven University of Technology and are thrilled that you chose to join us on our mission. Go, go, Gerben!
Carbyon values the power of collaboration and ecosystem development. The Eindhoven Engine project, a typical Brainport Eindhoven region initiative, gives us the opportunity to leverage both. The video below captures exactly what it stands for and why we consider it important.

It’s game on! Carbyon is part of the XPRIZE Carbon Removal challenge. We hope to see lots of like-minded teams compete: together we can make truly meaningful impact … while having loads of fun as well!
Carbyon kick-started CES2021 with participating in the Pitch & Connect event that was organized by Holland in the Valley, an ecosystem that empowers Dutch entrepreneurs to innovate and scale in the Bay Area. We were invited to tell our story in front of selected group of seasoned US entrepreneurs and investors alongside 15 other Dutch startups and scaleups. The main aim of it was to get feedback and advice as a take-away to further engage with the international crowd visiting CES2021 and beyond. Besides this, the top coaches would also pick the best pitches, and guess what…. Carbyon was recognized as “top pitch” by this panel. What a great way to start this exciting CES week!
Carbyon is exibitor at the all digital CES 2021. CES will digitally convene businesses, thought leaders, media and the broader tech community to launch products, build brands and form partnerships. Hear from technology innovators, see the latest product launches, and engage with global brands and startups from around the world. Join the digital edition of CES 2021 from 11 to 14 January.
At Carbyon we are convinced that it will be extremely hard to avoid the catastrophic effects of climate change without implementing means to remove CO2 from the atmosphere. It is at the core of our mission to address both CO2 emission reduction and atmospheric CO2 removal. By design, our solutions can cater for both pathways in the most effective way.
We foster collaboration to accelerate and scale-up carbon dioxide removal technology worldwide. This requires multi-level cooperations and dialogues among governments, policymakers, regulators, businesses, researchers, engineers and civil society. We recognize that this is something we shouldn’t do solely on our own.
That is why Carbyon recently joined the Negative Emissions Platform (NEP), which is a unique partnership of European and international actors. It provides a forum in which diverse like-minded organisations actively collaborate to improve political and public recognition of carbon removals. Together we will work on a broad range of activities to achieve our common goal: accelerate carbon removals for a climate neutral future.
Anna Dubowik, secretary general at NEP, is looking forward to taking this challenge with us: “As NEP we aim to represent both well-established and new technology developers and providers, as well as sponsors, research centers, academia, think-tanks and civil society. Our main focus is on engineered and hybrid approaches to carbon removal – direct air capture and bio-energy with carbon capture and storage, enhanced weathering on land and in the oceans, biochar, as well as soil carbon sequestration, wood in products and the use of atmospheric carbon mineralization processes in building materials. We see that the need for a strong policy and financial framework for carbon removals is gaining momentum in Europe, and we are delighted to have Carbyon among us to work together towards an enabling framework for a portfolio of removal solutions.”
