17tons is powered by cutting-edge technologies
that enables us to offer the most robust measurement and verification on the market
Measuring the Carbon Captured in Projects Real-Time.
Our composable platform combines climate technology, Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, and Blockchain to create a full-stack offering for our clients.17tons is making high quality nature-based investments verifiable and transparent for companies and their stakeholders.
Agroforestry design allows us to match trees to the environments where they are planted, so that we can preserve and restore biodiversity.
We use RFID chips to identify each tree, its GPS location, land owner and planting date. These chips allow us to ensure each tree’s carbon removal is only counted once.
Internet of Things
Smart sensors are planted among networks of trees to monitor the entire system, including air and soil quality.
These sensors support the interconnectivity of each tree’s data with the forest and translate it to the central 17tons platform.
Machine learning algorithms (AI) aggregate the data from forests and analyze it to certify the amount of carbon removed and value generated. The use of AI allows for a more accurate estimation of impact because of its ability to layer multiple data sources and types in one analysis.
The translation of data from planted trees onto the blockchain allows for a real-time view of sequestration and biodiversity in an ecosystem.
It also allows users to exchange their trees, and creates a permanent record of that tree’s carbon removal for years to come.
