who we are

We, the 'TUM Carbon Removal Initiative‘, are a non-profit organization and student initiative from the Technical University of Munich. With 40 students from TUM as members, we want to innovate in the field of carbon removal, while also increasing the awareness of the topic at the university.
Our whole team shares the same passion to innovate, have an impact and take action to fight climate change and global warming.

what we do

 Our goal is to develop a cheap and scalable 'Direct Air Capture & Storage' solution to mitigate the effects of climate change.
With the technology that we are currently developing, we want to tackle two core issues of carbon removal: Scalability and Traceability. We have already constructed prototypes and have conducted experiments to validate our approach.
In the upcoming year we will develop and construct a 20 t/year ‘Direct Air Capture’ pilot plant at TUM to showcase the efficiency and feasibility of our technology on a larger scale. To do so successfully, we need your help!
