We have previously seen how CO2 released by steel plants can be converted into ethanol, now Swiss environmental company Climeworks has launched a pilot project designed to capture carbon dioxide from the air. Founded in 2010 by engineers Christoph Gebald and Jan Wurzbacher, who met while students at Swiss university ETH Zurich, Climeworks has developed the technology to filter atmospheric carbon directly out of ambient air. Their first carbon capture plant, in Hinwil canton, will operate as a three-year demonstration project in co-operation with partners Gebrüder Meier and KEZO, and with a financial contribution by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy.
