Lowercarbon Capital backs kickass companies that make real money slashing CO2 emissions, sucking carbon out of the sky, and buying us time to unf**k the planet.
Fixing the planet is just good business. Shame and guilt won’t get us there, markets will.
Making chemicals with enzymes, not oil.
Fusion with plasma-taming magnets.
Beef that never had eyes nor hooves.
Kelp-farming carbon-sinking robots.
Fully electric airplanes.
Clean, fast, cheap lithium mining.
Batteries that make solar work 24/7.
Cheap zero-carbon cement.
You can’t get to better, faster, cheaper by continuing to burn old dinosaur bones.
Our companies combine hard science with some bonkers ambition to tackle three things:
Slashing new CO2.
Until new emissions hit zero, temperatures will keep going up. So we are funding technologies that reduce sources of carbon dioxide, methane, and other greenhouse gases. From energy and transportation, to industrial materials and agriculture, we’re on it.
Sucking up carbon.
We have to figure out how to hit Ctrl+Z on decades worth of carbon pollution. Even if we zeroed out emissions overnight, there is already enough CO2 swirling around the atmosphere to cause irreparable damage to life on Earth. Give or take, we’ll need to suck at least a trillion tons of CO2 out of the sky between now and 2100. In progress.
Buying more time.
These temps, fires, droughts, and storms are no accident and will only get worse. Crossing fingers we can remove carbon fast enough. But in case huge breakthroughs don’t come together in time, we’re looking at ways to cool the planet to buy more time for the people, plants, and animals on the front lines.
