Wir wollen 'Carbon Removal' weltweit skalierbar machen - indem wir Gebäude in Kohlenstoffsenken verwandeln!

ecoLocked ist aus dem Drang in uns allen entstanden, praktische Lösungen zur Eindämmung des Klimawandels zu entwickeln – so schnell wie möglich, und dort, wo es am dringendsten nötig ist. Da die industrielle Dekarbonisierung viel zu langsam vorangeht, war uns schnell klar: wir können das 1,5-Grad-Ziel nur mit zusätzlichen, schnell skalierbaren ‚Carbon Removal'-Technologien erreichen.

Im September 2021 haben wir ecoLocked mit dem Ziel gegründet, die dauerhafte Speicherung von Biokohlenstoff in Gebäuden mit praktischen Produkten und Mehrwert für den Bausektor zu verbinden. Denn wir sind der festen Überzeugung, dass wirtschaftlicher Nutzen und Klimaverträglichkeit miteinander vereinbar sind und sich in nachhaltigen Wertschöpfungsketten sogar gegenseitig verstärken.

Im Jahr 2022 haben wir erste öffentliche Mittel und Wagniskapital erhalten und eigene Labor- und Produktionsflächen in der Nähe von Berlin eröffnet. Ein Jahr später konnten wir unsere Anwendungen im kommerziellen Maßstab mit verschiedenen Industriepartnern validieren und erste Produkte für Betonfertigteile an den Markt bringen. In unserer Arbeit werden wir von mehreren renommierten Accelerator-Programmen unterstützt, darunter Carbon2Value und RESPOND.

Wir arbeiten weiterhin mit Nachdruck an unserer Lösung und präsentieren stolz unser vielfältiges Team aus multidisziplinären Experten und Klima-Enthusiasten!
