  • The Sea Upwelling Company Inc. Driven mechanically by ocean waves, our open-ocean free-drifting upwelling pumps deliver nutrients from ~500m depth to the sunlit surface ocean, triggering the growth of phytoplankton, which absorb dissolved CO2 to metabolize the nutrients.

🛩️ Pilot Program Ready for Takeoff 🛩️

Gathering feedback early and often.

NyxCarbon gathered its first round of UX/UI feedback from product leaders in fintech and carbon removal. The next round of feedback will take place with Pilot Partners from financial institutions and asset managers. Following that, the platform will be available in Beta.

Lenders and borrowers will be able to explore financing options that are relevant to their company.

  • Lenders can scope out new opportunities using the NxyCarbon database of companies seeking early-stage project finance. They can then use the end-to-end solution for support with underwriting and loan servicing.
  • Borrowers can create a profile to get in front of financial institutions and asset managers. (For free!)

NyxCarbon makes this possible by automating loan contracts and providing targeted market intelligence on companies in carbon removal and ecosystem restoration.

The NyxCarbon pilot program is for financial institutions and asset managers who want access to opportunities in sustainability-linked lending.
