In order to mitigate rising atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) levels, two leading companies have joined forces in an effort to unlock the storage potential of air-captured CO2 in the Middle East.
With large-scale removal of atmospheric CO2 being just as important as reducing its production, Swiss company Climeworks has created direct air capture technology which captures both unavoidable and historic CO2 emissions directly from air.
When combined with storage methods pioneered by Omani company, 44.01, this captured CO2 can undergo the natural process of mineralisation within peridotite rocks. This reaction allows precipitation and storage of carbonates within the rock.
