Who We Are

GCV is a systems integrator and project development venture working to harness the abundant resources of the Great Rift Valley towards the global decarbonization efforts by developing large scale green industry and technical removals projects. An, African Climate Ventures backed company, we aim to develop comprehensive industrial parks that serve as complete solutions for energy-intensive businesses, enabling them to operate with enhanced efficiency and achieving net zero targets.

GCV is seeking and working with a network of actors, including energy concession holders, DAC (Direct Air Capture) technology ventures, carbon storage providers, green industries, and project financiers, to develop the hubs .
Our first project is piloting point-of-use geothermal energy-powered DACCS (Direct Air Carbon Capture and Storage) installations that can meet the growing demand for high-quality, permanent carbon removal.

Our Vision

Our long-term goal is to design, build and launch a series of DACCS-anchored industrial hubs across East Africa’s Rift Valley, capturing a minimum 1Mt C02/yr by 2030. By so doing, we hope to play a significant part in addressing the climate crisis and stimulating the growth of a regional green economy ecosystem.

We aim to utilize the green energy infrastructure to power the expansion of our DACCS hub and turnkey industrial parks specialized in heavy green industry applications. Sectors of interest include green ammonia and synthetic fuels. We will also explore direct applications of geothermal heat as an input into industrial processes e.g. food processing.

Why East Africa

The East African Rift Valley is an active continental rift zone that boasts a wealth of natural resources ideal for a DACCS ecosystem to thrive. The zone is characterized by large volumes of continental flood basalt deposits, a mineral well-suited for carbon storage.

It is also home to untapped world-class solar, wind, and geothermal energy resources fit for powering energy-intensive industries in green manner.
We truly believe that by transforming these assets into operational infrastructure, we could position East Africa as a globally competitive hub for climate action.

From Emissions to Mineralized Rock. Why Now?

Emerging climate research unequivocally emphasizes the importance of carbon sequestration efforts as a century-defining responsibility. To successfully mitigate global warming and stay within the limits set by the Paris Agreement, it is imperative to implement innovative Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) technologies. These technologies must achieve a 100-fold increase in annual carbon capture by 2030 and a staggering 2000-fold increase by 2050 for us to limit global warming below 1.5°C with little to no overshoot. The next decade will therefore be crucial for the development and deployment of novel CDR initiatives. Without substantial progress during this period, it may not be feasible to deploy the amount of CDR desperately needed in the second half of this century.
