Chrysalix Venture Capital has held the first close of its fifth fund, the Carbon Neutrality Fund, which will invest in early-stage companies developing technologies to enable carbon neutrality for industries such as energy, mining, transport, chemicals, building materials like steel and cement, and forestry. 

The fund, which is targeting $120 million, will focus on technologies that include resource efficiency solutions, alternative fuels, materials substitution and circularity, carbon as a resource, negative emission technologies, carbon analytics and markets and will primarily invest across Canada, the US and Europe.

Carbon neutral targets are set by many of the largest global companies. To achieve those targets, strategies like portfolio management, decarbonising existing assets, and building new green businesses need to be implemented during this decade. Implementing these strategies requires the adoption of new technologies and innovation, with many of the key technologies either in early adoption or not yet commercially available.

Investors in the Fund include leading industrial companies like Evonik, LyondellBasell, Siam Cement Group (SCG), and a North American leader in forestry, pulp and paper products.
