Direct Air Capture & The Climate Long Game

RMI writes in CleanTechnca on the role that direct air capture can play in reducing emissions.

The C3 Take
  • Direct air capture (DAC) is one emerging technology that could play a significant role in reducing global emissions.
  • The technology works by quite literally sucking carbon dioxide out of the air using giant fans.
  • To advance direct air capture, RMI and the Jeremy and Hannelore Grantham Environmental Trust have created First Gigaton Captured, a partnership that will fund different DAC startups.
  • Innovative solutions are creating a cleaner energy future.

“In December 2021, RMI’s startup accelerator, Third Derivative (D3), announced First Gigaton Captured, a four-year partnership with the Jeremy and Hannelore Grantham Environmental Trust to find, fund, and scale the most promising carbon removal startups. First Gigaton Captured will focus on specific areas for innovation in direct air capture technology, and qualified startups are encouraged to apply when applications open in March.”
