How to Implement Innovative Carbon Removal Projects with Matthias Rettenbacher of Carbony

How to Implement Innovative Carbon Removal Projects with Matthias Rettenbacher of Carbony

Matthias Rettenbacher is the founder of Carbony - a European marketplace for high quality carbon removal projects. In this conversation, he shares his passion of reversing climate change through biochar and enhanced weathering technology. We also discuss his preference for dinner with Gary Vee over $50,000 cash and he shares an amazing gift he received from a friend who was like a father figure to him. 

Matthias’ goal is to neutralize 500 million tons of emissions by 2040. He recently retired from his regular job to focus full-time on this project and has gained knowledge on the latest regulations and publications from the European Union on Zones. Projects typically last one or two days once research and preparation work are done. 

The volcano rocks or ash used in projects are sourced within a radius of 100-150 kilometers from quarries located in Austria, Bulgaria, and Hungary. Matthias is also working with an Austrian university based in Vienna to conduct research on the nutrients trees get, their survival rate, growth rate, and carbon sequestration.
