Hello we are D-crbn, a spin-off from the research group PLASMANT, within the University of Antwerp

At D-CRBN we focus converting CO2 with the help of plasma reactors and CCU solutions.

We are a spin-off of the research group PLASMANT who is specialized in computer simulations for plasmas, plasma-surface interactions and laser-surface interactions.

The group is also conducting experimental research on the plasma-based conversion of greenhouse gases into value-added chemicals.

We believe that with a rapid industrialisation of our method we could help to achieve the EU’s climate objectives, which is reducing CO2 emissions by 40% in 2030 and becoming a net zero society in 2050.

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 (CO2)  in our atmosphere, reported as of May 2020, as the highest it has been in human history
