Turning carbon into a mineral that can be stored long term.
Carbin Minerals accelerates and optimizes permanent carbon removal in mine tailings, with the goal of enabling mines to produce both net-negative emissions and the metals essential for the clean energy transition. Shopify is Carbin Minerals’ first customer and our purchase is supporting expensive early testing, while the mining industry waits for Carbin Minerals to move down the cost curve.
Heirloom’s technology speeds up the rate at which naturally occurring minerals capture CO₂ with a process that relies on these minerals passively contacting air rather than using energy-intensive fans to draw air in. Shopify purchase will help fund Heirloom’s first deployment on its journey to remove one billion tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by 2035.
