Our story

We are a start-up company founded with the mission to combat climate change

Our vision extends to a future where CO2 is no longer seen as pollutant but as a valuable feedstock for the creation of high-value products and a net zero-carbon economy. By harnessing the power of innovation and sustainable practices, we aim to transform CO2 into a resource that can drive economic growth while mitigating environmental impact.

Our journey

Our journey began at the University of São Paulo, Brazil's premier research and higher education institution, where Carbonic was founded. We actively participate in applied research projects at the Research Centre for Greenhouse Gas Innovation (RCGI) and the Institute of Chemistry, driving innovation in our field.

With expertise in catalysis and process intensification, our technical team is at the forefront of research and development. They are supported by a network of scientific advisors and board members who contribute invaluable insights and guidance.

Right from the start, we have been guided by the belief that adhering to the best scientific practices can enhance global human development without causing harm to ecosystems. We are committed to creating a positive and inclusive work environment, recognizing that a healthy work-life balance is not an obstacle but rather a catalyst for high performance, creativity, and success.

Carbonic aspires to be one of the global leaders in the Carbon Capture and Utilization market segment. To achieve this, we stared by developing our proprietary technology CO2 to methanol at a pilot plant scale. The applications of green methanol are diverse. It can be used as a fuel or fuel additive, particularly in transportation sectors such as shipping, where it can replace traditional marine fuels. Green methanol is also gaining attention as a promising energy storage solution, as it can be used in fuel cells and as a hydrogen carrier. Additionally, it has potential applications in the chemical industry as a feedstock for the production of various chemicals and materials.


By leveraging our expertise, we aim to provide sustainable and innovative solutions that transform the carbon capture landscape. Our goal is to reshape the way CO2 emissions are perceived, ensuring a cleaner, more prosperous future for generations to come.
