We want to be clear – Skydiamonds only lock away a modest amount of carbon. But by using carbon from the atmosphere to create diamonds, our technology turns a negative into a positive.
More importantly, by avoiding mining the Earth, each Skydiamond has a considerably larger avoided carbon footprint. And it’s not just carbon emissions that are avoided, but pollution of the land and water too – these impacts are inherent in the process of mining the Earth for diamonds. Along with negative social and ethical impacts. And wildlife impacts. Mining for diamonds has it all.
From the start, Skydiamond’s objective has been to work in harmony with nature. We hope that our approach will inspire others to come up with inventive ways of addressing the climate crisis, helping create another way to live.
