Carbon A List: What is Direct Air Capture? (part 1)

"Next week, a Swiss company called Climeworks is holding an opening ceremony for their first of a kind plant that will pull 900 tons of carbon dioxide from the air per year and feed it to a neighboring greenhouse. While there are a handful of commercial and academic efforts building systems to extract carbon dioxide from air, Climeworks is the first company to deliver their product to a paying customer. They are also one of the finalists for the Virgin Earth Challenge; a $25 million award going to any solution or approach that can permanently remove one billion tons of carbon dioxide from circulation in a year."

NBC News: The Solution to Climate Change Might Be Right Under Our Feet

On CCS and BECCS. "But there's one CCS project experts agree stands out from the crowd. Last month, an Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) facility launched the Illinois Industrial Carbon Capture Project, which is expected to store 1.1 million tons of carbon dioxide per year in a sandstone layer a mile-and-a-half underground. Because it builds on a previous project, scientists are certain that billions of tons of carbon dioxide will easily remain trapped within the sediment. "

Boysen, Lena R.; et al. (2017): The limits to global-warming mitigation by terrestrial carbon removal

Boysen, Lena R.; Lucht, Wolfgang; Gerten, Dieter; Heck, Vera; Lenton, Timothy M.; Schellnhuber, Hans Joachim (2017): The limits to global-warming mitigation by terrestrial carbon removal. In: Earth's Future 4, S. 514. DOI: 10.1002/2016EF000469 

"Massive near-term greenhouse gas emissions reduction is a precondition for staying “well below 2°C” global warming as envisaged by the Paris Agreement. Furthermore, extensive terrestrial carbon dioxide removal (tCDR) through managed biomass growth and subsequent carbon capture and storage is required to avoid temperature “overshoot” in most pertinent scenarios."

Mobi Picker: Negative Emissions Technology May Solve Climate Change, But It’s Not Going To Be A Cakewalk For Sure

"Worth noting, as the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere reaches 400 parts per million for the first ever time in human history, some scientists and environmentalists are also pondering over the idea of directly capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere using huge versions of atmospheric scrubbers designed to remove CO2 from the air above and around us on board spacecraft."
