Project: Climateworks. About the Pilot and Demonstration Project
Swiss direct air capture project. "The overall goal is to design, build and continuously operate an industrial scale CO2 capture plant and sell atmospheric CO2 to a customer. The plant will be operational by mid-2016 and annually capture 900 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere, enhancing the growth of vegetables and lettuce in a nearby greenhouse of Gebrüder Meier by up to 20 percent. The plant is constructed as part of a three-year pilot and demonstration project with Gebrüder Meier and Zweckverband Kehrichtverwertung Zürcher Oberland KEZO (a municipal waste disposal company) as project partners. The project is supported by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE)."
