Hello we are D-crbn

D-CRBN, a spin-off company from the research group Plasmant, within the University of Antwerp has developed a cutting edge technology that enables the conversion of CO2.

This innovative process uses plasma to split CO2 molecules into its original building blocks.

These building blocks can be re-used to create valuable products such as biofuels, chemicals, or polymers to ultimately achieve a circular and more sustainable economy.

Let’s work together towards the green dot .

STRIVING FOR A NET-ZERO EMISSIONS SOCIETY THROUGH PLASMA AND CARBON CAPTURE UTILIZATION SOLUTIONS

HOW DO WE PLAN TO EFFICIENTLY RE-USE THIS CAPTURED CO2?

We have opted for Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU). We want to re-use the captured carbon dioxide.

Our innovative process uses plasma to split CO2 molecules into their original building blocks. 

These blocks can be utilized to create valuable products such as biofuels, chemicals, or polymers to ultimately achieve a circular economy.

We will turn your climate stabilization strategy as your competitive edge, and make your “Green Deal” gaining momentum.

CO2 FACTS

z

189 NATIONS

The amount of countries that have ratified the 2015 Paris Agreement, agreeing to limit global warming and adapt to climate change, partly by protecting nature and investing in decarbonizing solutions

z

10 x ROI

Roughly 3.2 billion people are currently impacted by land degradation worldwide. Restoration is critical and cost-effective. Every US$ 1 invested in restoration generates, on average, 10x that amount in benefits.

z

2019 WARMEST YEAR

NASA data show that average global temperatures in 2019 were 0.98 degrees C warmer than the 20th century average. The five warmest years records have all occurred since 2015.

z

800 Million People

Eleven percent of the world’s population is currently vulnerable to climate change impacts such as droughts, floods, heat waves, extreme weather events and sea-level rise.

z

11 PERCENT

Eleven percent of all global greenhouse gas emissions caused by humans are due to deforestation. This is comparable to the emissions from all of the passenger vehicles on the planet.

z

416 PARTS PER MILLION

416 parts per million. This is the concentration of carbon dioxide  in our atmosphere, reported as of May 2020, as the highest it has been in human history
