In our industry, micro gas turbines already exist but suffer from inefficiency. Our unique selling points (USPs) lie in our ability to utilize multiple fuels and our enhanced efficiency compared to similar-sized generators.
I’m Yuval Avi, CEO of Terrra, a natural-based carbon removal solution. We aim to reestablish wetlands, which are superior to forests in sequestering carbon. Over the past two centuries, we’ve not only emitted CO2 by burning fossil fuels but also damaged the Earth’s capacity to absorb it by draining wetlands. Many drained wetlands are now agricultural sources of greenhouse gases. Our approach allows farmers to manage their land as wetlands, sequestering carbon while growing food or generating energy.
We envision becoming the Airbnb of wetlands, letting anyone with spare land use it as a wetland. We provide a platform to measure, optimize, and issue credits, much like Airbnb. We aim to intervene as minimally as possible in terms of creating wetlands. We identify areas that nature designated initially as wetlands, which were altered by human activity. We’re reversing these alterations by removing concrete and letting nature reclaim the space. However, it’s crucial to manage wetlands correctly to avoid emissions and enhance carbon sequestration, and we provide farmers with the necessary technology and guidance to do so.
