Carbon Removal

What is carbon removal?

This is the process of removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere either by natural or technological means, the carbon is locked away for decades or millennia. Carbon dioxide removal is referred to as CDR and it has the potential to reveres climate change.

What are the methods for carbon removal?

  • Planting trees – planting massive new forest.
  • Soil carbon sequestration – using no-till agriculture.
  • Biochar – creating charcoal and ploughing it into the soil or mixing with concrete.
  • Biomass – filling a pit with biomass to lock the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere
  • Enhanced mineralisation – spreading baltic rocks over land to absorb carbon dioxide
  • Direck Air capture – building machines to suck carbon dioxide from the atmosphere
  • Ocean based methods – such as artificial downwelling by pumping carbon to the ocean depth.
  • Ocean alkalinisation such as spreading alkaline over the ocean

Why is it important to remove the carbon dioxide?

Climate Change

It is critical to address climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere because even if we stop generating carbon dioxide today, the previously emitted carbon dioxide will remain in the atmosphere and ocean.

Avoid Disasters

By delaying or even stopping climate change, removing, and sequestering that carbon dioxide might permanently lower the danger of climatic disasters. Without extensive carbon removal, it will be extremely impossible to reach ambitious targets for mitigating climate change.

Follow the Science

The IPCC estimates that about 580 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide that are now included in the global carbon budget need to be removed to have a 50% likelihood of lowering global warming to 1.5°C.

Limited Time

It is projected that by 2023, CDR will have removed around 2 gigatons of CO2 annually, or 4% of the greenhouse gases that humans are responsible for emitting into the atmosphere.

This is less than what is necessary, thus we must measure and reduce a billion carbon emissions as soon as possible.

Our approach to carbon removal

Natural and manmade solutions

Natural and manmade solutions exist to collect and store carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in a variety of ways, including trees and plants, soils, underground reservoirs, rocks, and the ocean.

Carbon Permanence

Cutmit Verification Framework

Clear ESG benefit

The project must provide clear environmental, social, and economic benefits

Permanence and additionality

Clear permeance, durability of the project and evidence that the carbon removal cannot occur without the carbon credit

Public MRV

The MRV of the project must be publicly available from a credible registry


The project carbon removal must be from the net lifecycle emissions and the methodology used in the calculation must be the latest scientific techniques

The Cutmit Marketplace is designed for voluntary buyers focused on high durability removals, not offsets or emission reductions.
