Neustark raises US$69m for carbon dioxide removal expansion

Switzerland: Neustark has raised US$69m in a growth equity round to scale up its carbon dioxide removal technology. The funding, led by Decarbonisation Partners—a collaboration between BlackRock and Temasek—will support Neustark’s aim to permanently remove 1Mt of CO₂ by 2030. Climate tech growth investor Blume Equity also joined the round, alongside existing backers Holcim, Siemens Financial Services, Verve Ventures and ACE Ventures.

Neustark has developed a technology that captures biogenic CO₂ at its source and utilises it in building materials through an accelerated mineralisation process. This method is currently applied at 19 carbon capture and storage plants in Switzerland, Austria, Liechtenstein and Germany, with 40 more under construction across Europe.

Johannes Tiefenthaler, co-CEO and founder at Neustark, said “We turn the world’s largest waste stream, demolition concrete, into a carbon sink. In the past year, we have already deployed our unique solution at 19 sites. This growth investment will take us into the next exciting phase of our mission, helping us to further scale our impact across Europe, enter new markets in North America and Asia Pacific, and develop new solutions to store even more CO2 in mineral waste streams.”
