Clean Technica: Chevron’s Fig Leaf Part 1: Carbon Engineering Burns Natural Gas To Capture Carbon From The Air

"Recently headlines announced a $68 million dollar investment in a company that is building air-carbon capture technology. Headlines claimed it could scoop CO2 from the air we breath economically. Hyperbole, like ‘magic bullet’, was spread liberally around. The threshold number of $100 per ton of CO2 was bandied about."

Fasihi, M.; et al. (2019): Techno-economic assessment of CO2 direct air capture plants

Fasihi, M.; Efimova, O.; Breyer, C. (2019): Techno-economic assessment of CO2 direct air capture plants. In: Journal of Cleaner Production. DOI: 10.1016/j.jclepro.2019.03.086.

"CO2 direct air capture (DAC) has been increasingly discussed as a climate change mitigation option. Despite technical advances in the past decade, there are still misconceptions about DAC's current and long-term costs as well as energy, water and area demands. This could undermine DAC's anticipated role in a neutral or negative greenhouse gas emission energy system, and influence policy makers. In this study, a literature review and techno-economic analyses of state-of-the-art DAC technologies are performed, wherein, DAC technologies are categorised as high temperature aqueous solutions (HT DAC) and low temperature solid sorbent (LT DAC) systems, from an energy system perspective."

Bajamundi, C.; et al. (2019): Capturing CO2 from air. Technical performance and process control improvement

Bajamundi, C.; Koponen, J.; Ruuskanen, V.; Elfving, J.; Kosonen, A.; Kauppinen, J. ; Ahola, J. (2019): Capturing CO2 from air. Technical performance and process control improvement. In: Journal of CO2 Utilization 30, S. 232–239. DOI: 10.1016/j.jcou.2019.02.002.

"Direct air capture (DAC) is a technology for collecting and concentrating carbon dioxide from ambient air. If driven with renewable power, DAC is potentially a negative CO2 emissions technology that can compensate emissions from non-point sources such as aviation, shipping and land-use change. This study presents the results of 10 days capture campaign done between May and July 2018 plus a process control improvement test."

Sujan, A.; et al. (2019): Direct CO2 capture from air using poly(ethyleneimine)-loaded polymer/silica fiber sorbents

Sujan, A.; Pang, S.; Zhu, G.; Jones, C.; Lively, R. (2019): Direct CO2 capture from air using poly(ethyleneimine)-loaded polymer/silica fiber sorbents. In: ACS Sustainable Chem. Eng. DOI: 10.1021/acssuschemeng.8b06203.

"Direct CO2 capture from atmospheric air is gaining increased attention as one of the most scalable negative carbon approaches available to tackle climate change if coupled with the sequestration of CO2 geologically. [...] In this work, we describe the application of polymer/silica fiber sorbents functionalized with a primary amine rich polymer, poly(ethyleneimine) (PEI), for DAC. Monolithic fiber sorbents composed of cellulose acetate (CA) and SiO2 are synthesized via the dry-jet, wet quench spinning technique."

Zhao, R.; et al. (2019): Thermodynamic exploration of temperature vacuum swing adsorption for direct air capture of carbon dioxide in buildings

Zhao, R.; Liu, L.; Zhao, L.; Deng, S.; Li, S.; Zhang, Y.; Li, H. (2019): Thermodynamic exploration of temperature vacuum swing adsorption for direct air capture of carbon dioxide in buildings. In: Energy Conversion and Management 183, S. 418–426. DOI: 10.1016/j.enconman.2019.01.009.

"Abrupt climate change such as the loss of Arctic sea-ice area urgently needs negative emissions technologies. The potential application of direct air capture of carbon dioxide from indoor air and outdoor air in closed buildings or crowded places has been discussed in this paper. From the aspects of carbon reduction and indoor comfort, the ventilation system integrating a capture device is of great value in practical use."
