CarpeCarbon is the first company in Italy to develop methods that employ Direct Air Capture to safely store CO2 underground after removing it from the atmosphere. With the financing, CarpeCarbon plans to create Piedmont’s first DAC plant.

With CarpeCarbon’s Direct Air Capture technique, CO2 is directly filtered from the atmosphere at any location, as compared to carbon capture, which occurs at the point of emission.

Subterranean storage of this captured CO2 allows for a variety of industrial uses, such as the produce of sustainable aviation fuels, pharmaceuticals, electric vehicle battery recycling, carbon-neutral construction supplies, carbonated beverage production, and decaffeinated products.

CarpeCarbon co-founder and CEO Giuliano Antoniciello shared: “We strongly believe in this entrepreneurial project which sets bold but necessary goals if we want to meet our climate goals and the goals of the Paris Agreement. One aspect of which I am particularly proud is that our team is young, passionate, and extremely competent, with more than 65 years of total advanced training, including masters and PhDs in STEM fields, ranging from carbon capture chemistry to energy engineering.”

CDP Venture Captial technology transfer fund’s Claudia Pingue added: “For the Tech4Planet Technology Transfer Pole, it is a source of pride to have brought the idea of CarpeCarbon to the market, and also to have involved the regional co-investment fund Piemonte Next, which arises from the Region’s desire to support innovation that originates in the region. CarpeCarbon’s solution has the ingredients to mitigate, through innovative technologies, the effects of climate change.”
