Carbon Capture & Storage

ccs banner borderWhat is the most effective way to capture carbon?  The way Nature has been doing, very effectively, for the last 360 million years!

Global warming is directly related to Earth’s carbon cycle.  Through increasing industrialisation, fossil fuel expenditure and slash-and-burn agricultural processes more and more carbon is released into the atmosphere, driving climate change.

Photosynthetic organisms provide the “capture side” of the carbon cycle, but human activity has had and is increasingly having a large-scale, progressive, negative impact.

PolyGenomX trees, crops, shrubs or algae capture and fix up to 50% more carbon than their diploid peers, due to their polploidy nature.

Using PolyGenomX varieties within the current economic model will automatically fix up to 50% more carbon than current plants – AND yield up to 30% more product (biomass, timber, fruit etc), with the prospect of much greater profit.

Carbon Sink – PGX1002

PGX1002 is currently our fastest-growing tree.

It is capable of capturing and storing vast volumes of CO2 and converting that into some of the finest veneering timber. We happen to think that storing CO2 in a cupboard – at least in the form of the veneer on that cupboard – is not only a more permanent and aesthetically pleasing solution than squeezing it into holes in the ground at enormous cost, but is also likely to be a cashflow positive solution to boot.

Other PolyGenomX varieties have been developed with carbon capture as a prime role.

While not matching the outright growing rate of PGX1002, these species have been designed to thrive in a wider range of climatic conditions, and to provide and promote biodiversity where the intention is to create long-term diversified forests dedicated to carbon capture.
