Wyoming will soon be home to the world’s largest carbon removal facility

Adele Peters of Fast Company writes about the world’s largest carbon removal facility.

The C3 Take
  • Project Basin, a carbon removal project that is being led by CarbonCapture, will come online later this year in Wyoming and will be able to sequester 5 million metric tons of CO2 per year by 2030.
  • Companies will partner with CarbonCapture to buy carbon credits from Project Basin to offset their emissions.
  • Last year the first commercial carbon removal plant opened in Iceland, initially capturing 4,000 tons of CO2 per year.

“CarbonCapture is working to reduce cost in part by finding cheaper materials to absorb CO2 inside its machinery. Because dozens of new sorbents are now being developed specifically for direct air capture, the company’s technology is designed to work with them interchangeably, so the equipment can easily be updated as the field progresses. The material it might use in 2030 may not yet exist.”
