We need to get rid of
The climate crisis is a threat to humanity
Even if we stopped emitting today, we would still have to remove an excess of roughly 500 Gt of CO2 from the atmosphere to return to pre-climate crisis levels. Without further emissions, the carbon in the air is already capable of causing severe global impacts.Explore the story
Turning dirt into profit
By effectively enhancing natural processes, agriculture is capable of absorbing carbon into the soil where it fulfills a range of valuable ecosystem services, including increased fertility.
Scientific research has shown that by converting 20% of current farmlands to a sequestration approach, 100% of yearly annual emissions can be sequestered – while maintaining and improving productivity.Explore resources
Today's scientific work has proven the possibility of CO2 degradation with soil sequestration, but there is a significant limitation in measuring the results on a marketable basis.
Examples of measurement techniques are "gas chromatography" and "mass spectroscopy". These are currently required for accurate analysis of soil samples and are quite expensive. They cost about 30€ per 5g sample.
To make it easier to detect CO2 in soil we try to reduce the costs per sample to cents instead of euros.
We use LIBS spectroscopy, which is also used on the Mars Rover, to create the most accurate "ground truth" soil database in the world.
This allows us to create algorithmic data models to make predictions about carbon farming and food growth.
What is our process?
The steps we take to build a “ground truth” database
Extracting many samples, in the form of small pallets, from many different areas of farmland.
The samples get analyzed with LIBS spectroscopy.
The sample data will be compared with predictions from our system and verified.
We are creating a certificate for voluntary carbon offsets.
All important data is stored on a block-chain to ensure a database for the future.
True Carbon™ provides a platform to buy certificates based on the accuracy of the meassurements.
