Join The Mission to Capture Carbon and Secure a Sustainable Future

Acre is supporting a leading frontrunner in carbon capture, based in Vancouver. In a world grappling with climate change, they're at the forefront of a groundbreaking solution: capturing carbon dioxide from the air and storing it permanently as rock. With this innovative technology, they are partnering with the minerals industry to transform mines into carbon capture hubs, harnessing the same resources essential for a clean energy future.

The founders, renowned experts in carbon capture in mine tailings, bring over 20 years of experience and a deep commitment to environmental stewardship. They are driven by the belief that by working with nature, not against it, we can achieve carbon dioxide removal on a scale that will safeguard a thriving and abundant Earth for generations to come.
