Our Latest Project

Our Climate Change Initiative:
Carbon Biotech

Carbon Biotech AG is a sustainability and socially oriented biotechnology enterprise located in Senftenberg, Germany. We are dedicated to mitigating climate change with biotechnology.
Carbon Biotech has been developing an algae biotech platform and incubator to revolutionize high-profile value chains with sustainable and renewable products across future industries.

Time Is Running Out

The total amount of atmospheric CO2 has been approaching a significantly critical threshold in the atmosphere. Exceeding the 1.5°C path strongly recommended by IPCC and going beyond the 2° will trigger self-reinforcing, irreversible climate tipping points, driving the planet into the trajectory of “hothouse earth”. We are responding to the urgent need to dramatically reduce our CO2 output and actively remove CO2 from the atmosphere by developing the appropriate technologies.

Mitigate Climate Change

Our goal is to substantially contribute to meeting the demands of the 2015 Paris Agreement with a more ambitious 1.5°C path. We are dedicated to support the EU and German Climate Action Plan 2050 aiming for 80-95% less CO2 emission until 2050. Carbon Biotech believes in replenishing resources, not depleting them. With our technology, we remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere – and use this captured carbon as renewable resource.

Carbon Usage Cycle

We are shifting the perspective of CO2 from waste material into a valuable resource, establishing a sustainable cycle of carbon usage. Harmful CO2 is transformed back into value chains, which in turn can revolutionize a variety of industries and consumer products. Our approach will help to sequester atmospheric carbon, which closes the geological carbon cycle again.

Transformative Carbon Biotechnology

Carbon Biotech is joining the bio-based economy with our High- Power Carbon Dioxide Fixation Technology. Using the 2SCTM process, we biologically capture CO2 into an industry-ready biomass.

100% SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS

We believe in a green future, since we cannot continue without living, working and producing sustainably.
Our work is impact-oriented on each level of sustainability: environmentally, socially as well as economically.

Our Sustainability

SDG 2: Zero Hunger

It really is time for us to rethink how we grow, share and consume food. The global community is rapidly degrading our means of resources. Our soils, freshwater, oceans, forests and biodiversity are depleting while climate change is imposing even more pressure on the valuable resources on which we depend. 

This results in malnutrition, rural migration, droughts and floods, to name a few adverse impacts of unsustainable produce. Global access to food and agriculture systems need a substantial upgrade to become sustainable now and in the long run. 

Our research and development project through Carbon Biotech in Namibia with the University of Namibia UNAM is researching innovative, sustainable ways of creating food, nutrition supplements and biofertilizers with the use of biotechnology and microorganisms.

SDG 3: Good Health and Well Being

Over the past decade, many more people are living much healthier lives, but not all regions in the world have developed equally in this regard. People in developing countries such as The Gambia are still needlessly suffering from preventable diseases and dying prematurely. The Gambia is positioned 5th place in the world disease ranking, facing some of the most severe health and wellbeing challenges that need to be met with care, consideration and persistence.

SDG 4: Quality Education

The goal for this SDG is to ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning. This SDG acts as a key to all other SDGs, since awareness promotes new solutions and changes behavior. Thus, quality education can reduce inequalities, help people out of poverty, allow for responsible consumption and production and much more.

We fund more than 50 healthcare students in The Gambia to fulfill their dream to help the communities become more healthy and educated about health related issues. We plan to fund many more healthcare students around the world to have a lasting impact.

SDG 6: Clean Water and Sanitation

Millions of people, most of them children, suffer or even die from diseases associated with inadequate water supply, sanitation and hygiene. According to researchers at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), half of the world’s population will live in water stressed regions in 30 years. Thus, the action we take today will not only improve the lives of people who are living in those regions now but will have an immense impact on our futures. Our health initiative in The Gambia has one of its main focus points on water and sanitation. We already implemented several water boreholes in the countryside and are planning many more. Our goal is two establish in the next 5 years in the most vulnerable regions of The Gambia water and sanitation infrastructure.

SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth

Our social enterprise Carbon Biotech offers many work opportunities and is economically scalable. We have a team of leading scientists, engineers and experts in economics that made us establish a sustainable business model and product portfolio targeting global markets. Unique with Carbon Biotech is the team of renowned experts that work hand in hand with members of the young generation all over the world. Carbon Biotech is located in one of the most dynamic regions of the world performing a historical transformation from coal mining to sustainable high-tech industry.

To be successful needs integration of science-based technology into an impact-driven business model that allows for substantial revenue generation.

SDG 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure

First, Carbon Biotech developed a 2SC(TM) technology that is a new procedure to efficiently capture atmospheric carbon dioxide into biomass. Second, we established the platform BCCU (Bioenergy Carbon Capture and Usage) that allows us to build up several high impact value chains with microalgae biomass such as generation of novel food products, biopharmaceuticals, carbon chemicals and biofertilizer. Third, we are leading in human cell systems to validate the microalgae biomass dedicated for human and animal usages.

SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production

We calculated that if every German would only eat beef as their main protein intake, we would need 50% of the landmass of Germany per year. If every German would decide to only eat Spirulina as their main protein intake we would only need 0.1% of the landmass of Germany per year. Hence, making it the “best food for future” (WHO statement in 1974).

We offer sustainable and nutritious protein within planetary resources. A climate friendly alternative that gives back to the planet.

SDG 13: Climate Action

The total amount of atmospheric CO2 has been approaching a significantly critical threshold in the atmosphere. Exceeding the 1.5°C path strongly recommended by IPCC and going beyond the 2° will trigger self-reinforcing, irreversible climate tipping points, driving the planet into the trajectory of “hothouse earth.”  We are responding to the urgent need to dramatically reduce our CO2 output and actively remove CO2 from the atmosphere by developing the appropriate technologies.

Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals

The UB-ONE Foundation builds bridges between governments, the private sector and civil society innovators. We are focused on engaging, connecting and collaborating with a diverse range of partners based on shared principles and values. This way, we can most effectively contribute towards the global goals.
