Stripe, Shopify, H&M spend $7 million on carbon removal from a dozen new companies
- Frontier, a public benefit company owned by payment processing company Stripe, says it has facilitated the purchase of $7 million in carbon removal from a dozen new companies in the nascent but growing industry.
- The techniques for removing carbon dioxide vary significantly, including applying alkaline byproducts from industrial processes to gravel on roads which acts as a carbon sink, using calcium to mineralize and remove dissolved carbon dioxide from water, and applying silicate rock powder to rice paddy farms in India.
- Frontier says the quantity, diversity and quality of the applications it has received in recent years all continue to improve.
