Vision & Mission
Our vision is to build and initiate a vast number of DAC plants before 2030. Our group exploring forefront DAC technology, intense research, and cross-sector collaboration.
Our vision is to build and initiate a vast number of Direct Air Capture (DAC) plants before 2030. Our group is working to achieve this by exploring forefront DAC technology, conducting intense research, and facilitating cross-sector collaboration. Today,billions of people are already experiencing the effects of climate change. Climate scientists communicate that to meet the temperature goals of the 2016 Paris Agreement, removal of existing CO2 from the atmosphere is necessary. Aggressive emissions reductions are imperative, and large-scale carbon removal is also required.
Through leading Direct Air Capture technologies from Carbon Engineering Ltd. (CE), the Nordic DAC Group is committed to accelerating the implementation of DAC plants. In respect of the Goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, Climate Action is key! It calls for urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts, with the climate being intrinsically linked to all 17 UN Goals, such as no poverty and food security, life on land, health and peace. Join our efforts to push the new DAC industry to mitigate climate change.
The Nordic DAC Group form a multi-stakeholder steering group with industry partners from renewable energy, aviation, finance, and environmental and legislation experts, including governmental institutions and Universities. Our goal is to tackle climate change by building and operating Direct Air Capture plants to remove carbon from the atmosphere.
Leading DAC Technology
At the Nordic DAC Group, we are the business developers and builders. We share a common goal with the DAC technology leader CE from Canada. To tackle climate change, and accelerating the DAC industry to capture more carbon from the atmosphere.
Direct Air Capture
Direct Air Capture (DAC) is a technology that captures carbon dioxide (CO2) directly out of atmospheric air with an engineered, mechanical system. CE’s DAC technology can scale up to capture one million tons of CO₂ per year with each commercial facility. That quantity of CO₂ is equivalent to the annual emissions of 250,000 average cars or the work of 40 million trees.
Uses of DAC technology
In DAC plants, and the resulting captured CO2, offer a range of opportunities to create products and environmental benefits. The captured atmospheric CO2 can be permanently stored underground in geological reservoirs to create large-scale ‘negative emissions’ or to be used in enhanced oil recovery operations. If combined with renewably-generated hydrogen, captured CO2 from DAC plants can produce clean-burning transportation fuels that work in existing vehicles. Another commercial opportunity to utilize DAC technology is to supply atmospheric carbon dioxide in the production of materials such as steel and concrete, or to produce chemicals.
