Why do we need to remove CO2 from the air?

  • Drastic emissions reductions are a must, but will not be sufficient  
  • Removing emissions is needed in addition to get the world to net zero 
  • Direct air capture is a technology that removes CO2 from the air in a highly effective way

Can't we just plant trees?

  • Planting trees is great and important
  • There are not enough trees in the world to offset society’s carbon emissions and there never will be
  • Permanence cannot always be guaranteed (for instance wildfires will release the CO
  • Direct air capture and storage is scalable and much faster (2-5 years vs 10 years)

How does Climeworks remove CO2 from the air?

  1. Climeworks’ direct air capture machines capture CO2 with a special filter
  2. As soon as the filter is full, we heat it and collect the concentrated CO2
  3. The CO2 is mixed with water and pumped underground by our partner Carbfix, where it turns into stone and is permanently removed from the atmosphere
