Siegel, R. (2018): The Artificial Tree

Siegel, R. (2018): The Artificial Tree. In: Mechanical Engineering 140 (11), S. 34. DOI: 10.1115/1.2018-NOV-2.

"Inside Arizona State University in Tempe’s lab sit the parts for an artificial tree, capable of extracting carbon dioxide 1,000 times faster than a natural tree. The research team is methodically transforming the process into a machine through which carbon dioxide doesn’t get turned into fruit or roots or tree trunks, as it does with a natural tree, but simply gets collected by resin in a reversible chemical process. This article takes a closer look at the process."

Quartz: A Swiss startup will turn carbon dioxide into stone—for a price

"One of those technologies is direct air capture. It consists of a machine that extracts carbon dioxide from the atmosphere—like a tree, but super-charged—using fans to drive air onto a surface that has a chemical agent which only reacts with carbon dioxide. Once the carbon dioxide is captured, the rest of the air is released."

Quartz: Climeworks has opened a third plant capturing carbon dioxide from the air

"In an upcoming report, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is likely to emphasize the need for a slew of techniques to not just cut emissions, but also suck carbon dioxide from the air. Climeworks, a Swiss startup, today (Oct. 1) opened its third such plant in the world."
