Corbin Hiar of E&E News reports on the world’s largest carbon removal plant which is set to open.

- The company is expecting to open the world’s largest carbon removal plant in the world later this week in Arkansas where it plans to remove 15,000 metric tons of CO2 annually before amping production up to 25,000 metric tons in 2025.
- Graphyte’s solution is available for $100/metric ton of carbon dioxide removed which makes it one of the most cost-competitive carbon removal solutions available on the market.
