Switzerland-based Climeworks is going a step further by capturing CO2 from the air for commercial uses. Climeworks have developed a filter that binds CO2 by direct air capture (DAC). The CO2 remains bound to the filter until low heat is applied, providing an effective storage solution. The stored CO2 can then be used to provide near-neutral energy solutions for a range of industrial processes, such as soft drink carbonization, growing plants in commercial greenhouses, and in the production of synthetic…
