Carbon Capture from the Atmosphere

September 27, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm BST

Carbon Capture is a method of removing Carbon Dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere to reduce the global warming/ green-house effect.

Carbon Engineering (CE) is deploying Direct Air Capture (DAC) technology at megatonne scale. The regenerative process uses standard industrial equipment assembled on site meaning plants can be rapidly deployed and a full local supply chain is developed.  In the US the world’s largest DACS facility is due online in 2024. In the UK, CE and Storegga plan to deploy a commercial DACS facility in North East Scotland. Construction could begin in 2024.  One plant does the work of around 40 million trees but with significantly less water and land use.
