Direct Air Capture is a technology that captures carbon dioxide directly from the air with an engineered, mechanical system. Direct Air Capture technology does this by pulling in atmospheric air, then through a series of chemical reactions, extracts the carbon dioxide (CO2) from it while returning the rest of the air to the environment.

How do Direct Air Capture works?

Direct Air Capture technology has four major pieces of equipment. The process starts with anĀ air contactor, which is a large structure modelled off industrial cooling towers. A giant fan pulls air into this structure, where it passes over thin plastic surfaces that have potassium hydroxide solution flowing over them. This non-toxic solution chemically binds with [...]
