In the first episode of our latest Podcast, Standard Gas Director and Co-Lead for Carbon, Richard Jackson, and Hans-Peter Schmidt, Head of the Ithaka Institute for Carbon Strategies, discuss Global Cooling and the role of Biochar and Mixed Waste in Carbon Removal.

With environment journalist, Gill Williams, asking the questions, Hans-Peter explains the history and role of the Ithaka Institute and the concept of ‘Global Cooling’.

Together, Richard and Hans-Peter also explore the role Biochar and the biogenic fraction in pyrolyzed Mixed Waste char can play in Carbon Removal.

They also address the issue of assessing how long in time-terms Greenhouse Gas emissions impact the environment versus the length of time different Carbon Removals are effective in keeping Carbon sequestered.

Our SG100 technology produces affordable, clean, carbon-negative energy, while capturing and removing carbon, and transforming waste management for the Circular Economy.
Our carbon removing technology has wide-scale commercial, transportation and industrial applications across value chains.

Carbon Negative Energy: Each year, a single SG100 plant can generate up to 40,000 MW hours of carbon-negative power, enough for around 10,000 homes, offices or commercial properties, as well as for the transportation sector and wider industry.

Carbon Reduction: It will remove up to 25,000 tonnes of CO2e – equivalent to the annual carbon emissions of 5,000 cars. With electrolysis, a plant processing biogenic waste will generate over 650 tonnes of green hydrogen. And the SG100 closes the waste management loop, offering a better low carbon alternative to landfill and incineration.

Carbon Capture: TheSG100 technology also generates ‘biochar’ and ‘carbon char’, a black, granular, dust-like co- product that can be sequestered in valuable agricultural, environmental, and industrial applications.

Our Mission is to significantly contribute in mitigating and reversing climate change’s negative environmental, social and economic impacts.
