Public Profile

Decsribing themselves as Public Benefit Company (PBO), Living Carbon PBC is structured around tackling climate change by genetically enhancing CO2 capture and storage in trees. What are described as "photosynthesis-enhanced hybrid" trees are usefully understood as genetically engineered such as to grow bigger and faster -- which, in turn, supports the tree to take more carbon out of the air. As described by Living Carbon personnel, their photosynthesis enhancement of the tree improves biomass accumulation by some 50+ percent enable a much increased rate of carbon capture. The project involves Living Carbon personnel locating the modified trees (several million seedlings) - planting them - on private land throughout the US in the next couple of years.
