Climeworks unveils upgraded carbon capture tech

Leah Garden of GreenBiz reports that Climeworks has upgraded its direct air capture tech.

The C3 Take
  • Climeworks has announced its Generation 3 direct air capture technology, which can capture twice the CO2 per module while halving energy consumption and costs compared to its predecessor.
  • Climeworks plans to begin construction of its first Generation 3 technology plant in Louisiana in 2026, following a $50 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy.
  • The company’s previous projects include Orca and Mammoth in Iceland, with Mammoth capable of capturing 36,000 tons of carbon annually using second-generation technology.

“The Generation 3 tech is able to capture twice the CO2 per module compared with its predecessor while cutting its energy consumption and associated costs in half, according to the startup.”
