    A power-generating kite (tethered, autonomous electric aircraft) is flown in figure eights or circles and is like the blade tips of a conventional wind turbine. These generate the majority of the energy as they sweep the largest area. Instead of a large generator on a tower, the kite is braked generatively by small onboard wind turbines. A "kite power plant" therefore only uses the most effective parts to generate energy. In particular, the tower is replaced by a light tether. Electrical power is transmitted by electrical cables integrated in the tether. The kite takes off and lands like a helicopter by reusing the onboard wind turbines as propellers. A kite power plant can generate energy cleanly and cost efficiently, also more economic than fossil alternatives.

    To become carbon neutral by mid century, we firstly have to avoid emissions wherever possible and secondly remove all residual emissions from the atmosphere for sectors where this is not possible. In order to achieve the necessary levels of carbon dioxide removal, a whole new global industry has started to emerge. In this emerging carbon dioxide removal industry, Neustark is set to offer the first solution to capture and permanently store CO2 in just one step. Through Neustark's carbon mineralization process, negative emissions are created as atmospheric CO2 is converted into solid rock by being contacted with demolished concrete. Our technology has been developed at ETH Zurich since 2017 and will be deployed for pilot tests at a commercial concrete plant in spring 2019. The products of our technology are CO2 certificates, as well circular construction aggregates of superior quality.
