AirCarbon is a Singapore-based Commodities Exchange which is regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and built on a blockchain architecture based on a Ethereum and ERC20 & ERC721 tokens. The Exchange, currently supported by the Sustainable Energy Association of Singapore (SEAS), the Digital Exchange Association (DXA), is a platform for the distribution and trading of carbon mitigating investment opportunities and carbon credits generated by those carbon mitigating projects.
AirCarbon also operates an investment fund (the AirCarbon Fund) which sits at the crossroad of capital, green projects and emission trading where it provides development capital to carbon sequestration projects as well as liquidity to the carbon markets. The fund is designed to reduce atmospheric carbon through CORSIA and ICAO certified and verified projects like reforestation, methane capture, and carbon emissions reduction. At the same time, the fund generates carbon credits for airlines to offset their own emissions.
