AirCarbon has 150 participants; sees ‘exponential’ growth going forward (1)

Trading carbon credits might be cheaper than you think, if you are going professional.

AirCarbon Exchange’s Zeenat Iqbal comments in Redshaw Advisors / Net Zero Markets videocast.

Since Feb. 2021, about 17 million tons traded on AirCarbon, she said. Sees growth advancing “quite exponentially.”

Trade costs about $25 in fees for 5,000 tons …equates to about half a cent per ton. (“In the over-the-counter market it’s very difficult to get this type of pricing efficiency.”)

Global volume last year was about 300 million tons, with small % handled by exchanges. Most are handled by more expensive brokers.

There are yearly fees as well, not just volume-based ones.
