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."
