Airfix

Building a Biomass Carbon Removal and Storage market.

Airfix, a new subsidiary of South Pole, combines decades of climate finance and carbon project development expertise with a vision for a scalable Biomass Carbon Removal and Storage (BiCRS) market in Switzerland and Europe.

Biomass with Carbon Removal and Storage (BiCRS) is a process that captures carbon emissions from organic material and stores the carbon in durable products or geologically. BiCRS uses proven technology that holds significant potential in industries and processes where reaching net zero is considered difficult or impossible, such as biomass or biogas plants, wastewater treatment plants and waste incineration plants.

Our Mission

Activating the Swiss BiCRS market

Uniquely positioned, Airfix seeks to activate the Swiss and European BiCRS market by using climate finance to rapidly scale this carbon removal technology. Unlocking the potential of BiCRS will empower some of Europe's crucial service providers to capture, transport and securely store their carbon emissions. Airfix aims to capture five million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent in 10 years.

What we do

Airfix supports biogenic carbon emitters to develop and finance carbon removal and storage, giving investors the confidence to invest in BiCRS while producing certified carbon removal credits, underpinned by significant emissions reductions.


By creating a cohesive ecosystem for BiCRS projects we simplify the complex value chain for biogenic emitters, providing investors with attractive opportunities for low-carbon investments and drive carbon finance into the BiCRS market by working with carbon standards to produce certified carbon credits.

We facilitate access to climate finance

Risk capital is provided to emitters and re-financed as soon as the project is commissioned or de-risked.

We offer consulting

With a strong network of partners, Airfix can provide consulting and project management throughout the lifespan of the project.

We aggregate demand

Demand for transport and storage from our partners is aggregated and coordinated by Airfix, to lower cost and secure capacities.

We are a knowledge hub

Being part of the very first BiCRS activities in Europe, Airfix shares knowledge and collaborates to scale as quickly as possible.

Meeting the Challenge

A market the size of the fossil fuel industry will be required to remove, transport & store carbon at scale to reach the goals of the Paris Agreement.

BiCRS has a key role to play here. But the value chain of BiCRS projects is long and complex. Companies with biogenic carbon emissions are often too small to manage the financing, transport and long term storage of the captured carbon. In addition, the bankability of projects can only be ensured if there are buyers in the voluntary market, public subsidies or regulatory instruments to cover the full cost of the value chain.
