Carbfix receives Bloomberg award

Today Carbfix received BloombergNEF’s Pioneers award for their unique carbon capture and storage method, which has turned CO2 into stone for more than a decade. This annual competition awards game-changing technologies, and innovations, that have the potential to accelerate global decarbonization and halt climate change.

The award was presented today in New York where BloombergNEF (BNEF) announced the twelve winners companies of its 2022 BNEF Pioneers competition that are pursuing significant low-carbon opportunities. The winners’ innovations fill important gaps that address the challenges of generating 24/7 clean power, achieving net-negative carbon capture, and decarbonizing aviation.

Carbfix won in the category “Scaling long-term carbon removal technologies”

Claire Curry, selection committee co-chair and global head of technology, industry & innovation research at BloombergNEF, commented: “This year we selected three specific areas – 24/7 power, negative carbon removal, and decarbonizing aviation – where BNEF believes new technologies must play an important role in decarbonization. We are cognizant of how essential new technologies are for tackling climate change, and how hard it is to scale innovation. Since 2010, this award has been a positive influence on climate-tech innovation, and we believe it is now more urgent than ever to highlight the technology gaps to reaching net-zero and the entrepreneurs addressing them.”

“We are proud, honored, and grateful to have been selected as a 2022 BNEF Pioneer winner. The award comes at an exciting time for Carbfix, as we work towards implementing our proven technology on a significantly larger scale than before. The potential for applying permanent CO2 mineral storage in basalts around the globe is enormous, and increasingly being recognized. We are very much looking forward to maximizing the impact of the Carbfix technology in the coming years.”
