Founded in late 2016, Climitigation is a
think do tank dedicated to mitigating climate change. We are firm believers in the need for rapid and full decarbonization of the economy as soon as possible, but recognize that even if it was immediate, limiting global warming to 1.5°C (2.7°F) or less will require many hundreds of gigatonnes of carbon dioxide removal (CDR) from the atmosphere.
Our first project, Project Vesta, has successfully started a pilot project for coastal enhanced weathering and Climitigation’s founder, Eric Matzner, has now stepped away from Project Vesta to work on developing and deploying the next permanent, gigatonne scaleable CDR technology. The next project will be focused on developing a CDR company with a business model that generates valuable and in-demand co-products, so it is self-sustaining and not reliant on voluntary carbon markets to scale up to Gt levels.
