Brian established Carbon Char Store with Richard, when he realised Standard Gas’ advanced thermal technology could be carbon negative. A deep dive into the world of carbon removals demonstrated that current marketplaces were unsatisfactory for ordinary people. Envisioning a secure and transparent system that allowed anyone to buy any number of carbon dioxide removals, Brian set to work building Carbon Char Store.
Richard modelled Standard Gas’ GHG emissions and quickly agreed that in order to expand its deployment, funding should be increased through the sale of carbon credits. Seeing that blockchain technology had not been used to legitimise ‘additional’ carbon credits, Richard set to work understanding what this system might look like. The result is Carbon Char Coin and Carbon Char NFTs.
While studying climate change at university, Ollie came to understand the need for society to scale carbon dioxide removals alongside emission reductions. Having seen what Standard Gas was capable of – removing carbon from the atmosphere – he joined Richard and Brian to support building a platform that would grade, price and sell removals from all kinds of projects.
