Carbfix is a knowledge-based company offering consultancy and service in the field of capturing CO2, in order to fight the climate crisis. The Carbfix technology is efficient and environmentally friendly and revolves around the capture and subsequent disposal of CO2 emissions, instead of releasing it into the atmosphere. In short, CO2 is transformed to stone by speeding up a natural process. Water containing dissolved CO2 – a kind if carbonated water – is injected into favourable subterranean bedrock where it transforms to minerals in less than 2 years, by the exact same process nature has done for millions of years to reduce the strength of CO2 in the atmosphere.
