Carbon Clean has been recognised for its decarbonisation efforts, having been selected as a 2022 Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) Pioneer.

The UK-based firm today (14th April) confirmed that it was a winner in the ‘wildcard’ category, a category for companies addressing a global net zero challenge that lies outside the scope of the three categories chosen of a particular year.

This years’ chosen categories were providing round-the-clock zero-emissions power, scaling long-term carbon removal technologies, and decarbonising aviation.

Overall, the annual ceremony that highlights game-changing technologies or innovations that have the potential to accelerate global decarbonisation and halt climate change.

Aniruddha Sharma, Co-founder and CEO of Carbon Clean, said, “It’s an honour to be selected as a 2022 BNEF Pioneer winner – this recognition highlights the critical role carbon capture technologies will play in transitioning to a net zero world.”

“Carbon Clean is revolutionising the industrial decarbonisation space for essential hard-to-abate industries such as cement, steel, refineries and energy from waste.

“Our latest breakthrough product, CycloneCC, reduces the size of carbon capture technology by 10 times and physical footprint by five times. Inclusion in the programme reinforces the impact we’re making to enable the capturing of one billion tonnes of CO2.”

Claire Curry, Selection Committee Co-chair and Global Head of Technology, Industry & Innovation Research at BloombergNEF, added, “We are cognisant of how essential new technologies are for tackling climate change, and how hard it is to scale innovation.

“Since 2010, this award has been a positive influence on climate-tech innovation, and we believe it is now more urgent than ever to highlight the technology gaps to reaching net zero and the entrepreneurs addressing them.”
