The Future Of Carbon Capture Is In The Air

The C3 Take

Direct air capture is becoming a growing industry. Across the globe, countries are investing in direct carbon capture projects that sequester Co2 directly from the atmosphere.

“What makes Climeworks use of DAC so interesting is that it doesn’t just work in removing emissions associated specifically with power generation, but can capture emissions directly from the air. Climeworks new plant, named Orca, will combine Swiss-based Climeworks’ direct air capture technology with the underground storage of carbon dioxide provided by Iceland’s Carbfix and the plant should be online in spring 2021. The technology has been designed to be modular to achieve short construction times, which could be a key enabler for scaling the technology in the future. The company is also powering the plant with clean energy from ON Power’s Hellisheidi Geothermal Power Plan, minimising the plant’s impact. This is the company’s largest plant so far, intended to capture around 4,000 tons of CO2 per year.”
