Our mission

We understand that net-zero can only be achieved if organisations can thrive while making the necessary changes to their operations.

Pyrolysis is a remarkable technology which offers cheap renewable energy and carbon removal at the same time, but organisations will not be able to make the transition themselves while they focus on their core business challenges.

Our mission is to launch 100 Green Energy Hubs in the next decade delivering on what the world needs most - substantial and scalable carbon removal.

Our impact

Carbon removal

The world can’t pin its hopes on not-yet-invented direct air-capture solutions. Pyrolysis is here today and each plant can remove 2,000 tCO2e annually, having a substantial impact on reaching Net Zero.

Green energy

Delivering emissions free, renewable energy avoids up to 1,500 tCO2e when displacing grid electricity or natural gas, making it a huge contribution to emission reduction.

Sustainable agriculture

Biochar when used in soil can increase crop yields by 15%, reduce chemical fertilizer usage and improve long term solid health, making it support efficient food production for generations to come.

Company mission

Onnu’s mission is to supercharge the industrial journey to Net Zero through the production of a little known wonder material called Biochar.

Decarbonisation of industry

Future proofed energy pricing

Generation of Carbon Offset credits

Enabling carbon removal technology

Driving a local circular economy

Secure source of carbon negative energy

Contribution to X SDGs

Our targets

We deliver clean energy, while capturing carbon, manufacturing biochar and investing in local circular economies.

By 2025 we aim to be annually delivering:

10MW

of clean, affordable
energy generated

25kt
