Alex is joined by Pawel Kisielewski, CEO, CCm Technologies to explore CO2 waste and fertilisers

Listen in to hear how CCm Technologies are scaling up to provide zero carbon fertilisers

CCU, Fertilisers and FMCG: CCm Technologies role in taking waste co2 emissions to solve Scope 3 challenges

In 2023 the University of Cambridge published details that quantified how manure and synthetic fertilisers emit the equivalent of 2.6 gigatonnes of carbon per year which is more than the emissions from global aviation and shipping combined. Read up on that article in Nature Magazine here.

Global fertiliser production is both essential and also hugely energy-intensive, yielding around 1.5% of total global CO2 emissions.

In this episode, Alex is joined by Pawel Kisielewski, CEO, CCm Technologies, a UK-based company scaling up to provide zero carbon fertilisers by taking CO2 waste streams and combining them with organic materials. Pawel shares their plans to triple production in the next few years, and projects in development in India and Europe. Listen in to learn more about the FMCG partners who are supporting CCm’s scale up and the opportunity for their cost-comparative fertiliser products.
