New carbon capture method 99% efficient


A new direct air capture (DAC) carbon capture technology being developed by researchers at Tokyo Metropolitan University is claimed to be 99% efficient at removing the harmful gas from the atmosphere when at low concentrations.

As the global energy market continues to advance development of sustainable alternatives to help reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon capture is being seen as an essential component of lowering emissions. 

Using a liquid system, direct air capture (DAC) passes air through a chemical solution to remove CO2 before applying high temperatures to the reintegrate the chemicals back into the process.
