Charm’s founders met through Planet, and independently developed an interest in preventing climate change. In 2017 they began working together to find a profitable way to sequester carbon. What started as a “char farm” (charm, get it?) evolved into a concept to turn agricultural residues into renewable industrial hydrogen via fast pyrolysis.
In 2020 our Chief Scientist and co-founder Shaun Meehan had two breakthroughs. First, converting agricultural residues into a bio-oil intermediate made the concept dramatically more economical and second, pumping bio-oil underground was a compelling and cost-competitive way to remove carbon from the atmosphere. We were off to the races.
Within 10 months, we completed our first carbon removal injection and in 2021, we completed more than 5,000 tons of carbon removal for customers like Stripe, Shopify and Microsoft.
We're just getting started. Gigatons or bust!
The consequences of climate change inherently affect some more than others, and we believe we are going to need a diverse team to help us save our little planet most effectively and justly.
