Our vision is a simple one: the atmosphere, restored.🌍

Our zero-carbon process reimagines the production of lime, a mineral that naturally removes CO2 from the atmosphere. Used in everything from cement and steel production to water filters, lime touches our lives in many ways, but remains highly carbon-intensive to make. Our technology changes this.

In addition to decarbonizing the lime sector, our zero-carbon lime enables multiple pathways to CO2 removal, and we aim to be the global leader in this space.💚
