Canadian company launching ‘game changing’ technology where CO2 is removed from atmosphere


Trees have been doing it for about 370 million years. But a new Canadian start-up business has stolen Mother Nature’s idea by creating a technology that can quite literally suck carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.

The captured CO2 can then either be discarded safely, or converted into fuel which could power cars, planes and other vehicles.

Calgary, Canada, based company Carbon Engineering (CE) is building the technology which, it believes, will extract millions of tonnes of CO2 from the air to help mitigate climate change.

According to CE, the captured carbon dioxide from ambient air (where it exists at 400ppm concentration) is then scrubbed and later provided as a pure compressed stream for storage or use. Capturing CO2 directly from the air does allow emissions originating from any source to be managed with standardised scalable industrial facilities.
