Subsurface Manager

About 44.01:

44.01 eliminates CO2 by turning it into rock. Our pioneering technology accelerates the natural process of CO2 mineralisation, meaning we can remove captured CO2 permanently in under nine months. Our process is safe, scalable and lasts forever.

Our mission is to offer affordable CO2 mineralisation internationally to help protect our climate and ultimately reverse global warming. We are a purpose-driven, innovative business, with an ambition to eliminate one billion tonnes of CO2 by 2040.

So far, we have run two successful pilots that prove our technology successfully mineralises CO2 without causing damage to the environment. Over the next 18 months, we plan to deploy our first commercial mineralisation sinks and expand our operations internationally.
