Carbon Engineering - Industrial-scale capture of CO2 from ambient air
This video explains the rationale and motivation behind direct capture of CO2 from the atmosphere (air capture), the air capture process itself, and what Carbon Engineering is doing to commercialize a...
This Giant Wind Wall Sucks Carbon Dioxide Out of the Air
Carbon Engineering has an ambitious plan to take carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and turn it into fuel. The company is aiming the facility at areas where reforestation isn't an option, such as de...
How Fjords Are Helping Curb Global Warming
Fjords from Alaska to Norway soak up potentially damaging carbon from the atmosphere, making the steep-sided inlets an overlooked natural ally in offsetting man-made climate change, a study showed on ...
German company can make gasoline from water and airborne CO2
The challenge of assembling airborne carbon gases into liquid hydrocarbon fuels has remained elusive, with most actual progress coming thanks to intermediate carbon-fixers like algae. Now, though, a G...
400 PPM: Can Artificial Trees Help Pull CO2 from the Air?
Although capture technologies show promise, pulling CO2 out of the air is unlikely to reduce greenhouse gas concentrations soon
