CARBON REMOVAL IS CRITICAL

We MUST remove carbon.

Every U.N. scenario to achieve this goal requires carbon dioxide removal (CDR).

This means taking CO2 out of the atmosphere.

It’s climate change in reverse.

If we don’t do it, then everything changes.

OUR SOLUTION

OUR North Star: Scalable Biomass Pyrolysis

BluSky’s key technology is founded on renewable and sustainable energy creation from biomass feedstock.

Developing low-cost energy while providing the ability to store carbon for thousands of years

Pyrolysis converts biomass to an intermediate liquid product that can be refined to hydrocarbon biofuels, oxygenated fuel additives, and petrochemical replacements.

Pyrolysis is the heating of an organic material, such as biomass, in the absence of oxygen.

Because no oxygen is present combustion does not occur, rather the biomass thermally decomposes into combustible gases and bio-char.

Pyrolysis of biomass produces three products: a liquid (bio-oil), and a solid (bio-char), which are both carbon credit earners, plus one gaseous (syngas), providing energy to power our integrated solutions.

Our strategy aims to produce biomass energy products at scale.

OUR STRATEGY: Use Low-Cost Energy to Make Other Technologies Viable

1

Gather Organic Waste

As trees and plants grow, they take CO2 out of the atmosphere and absorb carbon to build plant structures; likewise, when they die, they decompose and return carbon into the atmosphere as CO2. This is called the carbon cycle. BluSky’s approach is to use the carbon freely captured by nature and prevent it from going back into the atmosphere.

2

Biomass Pyrolysis

The process begins with pyrolysis where organic waste is heated up in a pyrolysis chamber to very high temperatures with very low oxygen levels. When undergoing pyrolysis, this waste splits apart into a char and a gas. The char is known as biochar, and the carbon inside of it will stay in the soil for thousands of years

3

Energy Generation

The gas in turn will go into a condenser and be used to power the pyrolysis & provide surplus energy for BluSky’s system. Any oils collected inside the chamber will be further refined into biocrude, which can be burned for energy or sold.

4

Capture Atmospheric CO2

The surplus energy will also be used to capture more CO2 from the atmosphere (carbon solution) and turn the carbon into more rock (carbonate solution). This hybrid approach is designed to be capital efficient and scalable to better address climate change.

5

Carbon Mineralization

When the gas is combusted, it leaves a solid stream of CO2 that BluSky can mix with minerals to turn carbon into solid rock, otherwise known as carbonate rock.

REVENUE POTENTIAL: Carbon Credits & More

BluSky is currently working with a carbon credit certification broker.

Auditors will ensure samples came from BluSky’s machines. Existing software used to monitor, report, and verify carbon captured on an ongoing basis is then integrated into BluSky’s systems.

BluSky seeks opportunities to sell carbon credits through brokers and to sell equipment to municipal governments; its aim is to be profitable primarily off carbon credits generated from the production of biochar.

Based on internal projections, BluSky anticipates that 50% of its revenue will be from carbon credits in general, 30% from equipment sales, 15% from biochar, and 5% from byproducts such as biocrude, carbonate rocks, & surplus energy.

Currently, potential carbon credit clients are large corporations purchasing through a brokerage, while potential clients interested in equipment are primarily governmental entities and medium to large size enterprises.
