In contrast to conventional avoidance credits, with neustark CDR credits CO₂ emissions are reversed by removing them from the atmosphere and storing them permanently. For our CDR service we exclusively work with CO₂ from direct air capture or biogenic sources.
With neustark CDR credits, CO2 emissions are not avoided, but reversed: they are removed from the atmosphere and stored permanently.
The credited removals are permanent and safe. Our technical approach does not interfere with natural ecosystems. We petrify the captured CO₂, turning it into limestone through a process called mineral carbonation. The mineralized CO2 is removed from the atmosphere and stored for millions of years.
With our technical carbon removal approach, the net climate impact is precisely measured. By implementing a solution which can be added to already existing infrastructure, the neustark technology itself is lightweight towards its own footprint. The process itself emits only small amounts of CO₂eq. and has a 95% efficiency. All CO₂eq. emissions during the process are taken into account and are compensated for. Neustark CDR credits are thus issued for a net carbon removal.
Trust has always been a core value of our company. To prove this, we quantify our net carbon removal with a Gold Standard methodology. Gold standard is our industry’s most highly regarded certification standard.
