We are Perpetual Next

Perpetual Next is a climate tech company that recovers carbon from organic waste. We develop technologies to enable industries becoming more sustainable by replacing fossil resources with renewable carbon. We call our product: Perpetual Carbon.

The focus of our technology and its applications is carbon removal: extracting CO₂ from the atmosphere and storing carbon in products that would otherwise end up in the atmosphere. This way we are making industries and businesses around the world more sustainable on our mutual journey towards a carbon-neutral 2050.

Our mutual journey towards 2050

The biggest challenge - and also the biggest opportunity - for humanity is to reduce climate change. The way we produce, use and dispose our products is responsible for 45% of the world’s total emissions. We have to bring emissions down to achieve climate neutrality by 2050.

Perpetual Next is committed to removing 1 Gigaton of CO₂ from the atmosphere by 2050. To put carbon to a new high-value use and to generate carbon credits. Perpetual Next does this in particular for the following sectors: chemicals, steel, cement, agriculture and energy.

Organic residues and waste streams provide a carbon removal opportunity on a global scale. Together with industry leaders we are actively scaling our proven technologies. We maximize our carbon removal impact by converting waste streams into valuable products.
