Skymining is scalable, profitable and holistic solution to one of the biggest problems facing mankind: excess atmospheric CO2. Skymining reverses the global carbon flow, physically removing and sequestering atmospheric carbon in the process of creating profitable green fuel, food and fibre. As a direct consequence, we create new arable soil by recovering marginal land — lessening pressure on deforestation.
Taken together, Skymining does the three main things needed to reverse climate change:
Replace the existing use of fossil fuels
Remove CO2 from the atmosphere
End deforestation and soil erosion
Creating a clean replacement for fossil fuels
Skymining combines the power of biology and technology to create the world’s first truly carbon negative fuel made from atmospheric carbon. For every dollar invested in Skymining, the climate impact is over 30x higher than the same investment in conventional renewables. As the world races to mitigate climate change, Skymining will be a key part of the solution.
The world’s most effective CO2 pumps
Our research revealed that certain specialized grasses contain hyper-efficient CO2-pumps. These pumps evolved over 30 million years ago to deal with CO2 scarcity, and nothing in nature nor anything man-made, can compete with their cost, scalability and efficiency.
A technological breakthrough
We use a commercially viable process of rapid carbonization to convert these grasses into a clean replacement for fossil fuels. In the process approximately 20% of the carbon removed from the atmosphere stays in the ground, making all of our clean fuels carbon negative. The technology has been tested on industrial scale and the proven process is now ready for global deployment.
Keep fossil fuels in the ground
Fossil fuels account for more than 80% of mankind’s primary energy supply, so the only realistic way to keep them in the ground is to give the world something else to burn. That ‘something else’ is Skymining fuel: clean, cheap, forever renewable — and it doesn’t add CO2 to the atmosphere during combustion. There is enough excess carbon in the sky to replace all fossil fuel use, giving the world time to move into the non-combusting energy era.

Turn your emissions into a profit
By investing in your own unique Skymine, any company or individual can turn their CO2 emissions into clean energy, food and fibre — and profit in the process. With Skymining, action on the environment goes from being an expense, to an investment in an asset (marginal land) that annually increases in value.
