Carbon Capture Technology Explained

Today, mankind’s collective activity deposits about 50 billion tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere each year. All of this carbon dioxide traps heat from the sun and warms the entire planet, creating new conditions that are changing life as we know it.So scientists are suggesting Co2 extraction methods in an effort to become carbon neutral – a cycle in which we clean up as much carbon dioxide as we emit.For the engineers who work on carbon removal at a large scale, the dream is to devise a closed-loop system in which the carbon released could be treated as a commodity or resource, rather than a waste product. Now, a Canada-based company called Carbon Engineering is turning this dream into a reality, using cutting-edge carbon capture technology called “direct air capture” to clean the air.
