Carbon Engineering and Shopify have announced a commitment for carbon dioxide (CO2) to be permanently removed from the atmosphere on the behalf of Shopify using Carbon Engineering’s direct air capture (DAC) technology.
The partnership marks Shopify as the first organisation who has committed to purchasing CO2 removal from one of Carbon Engineering’s early commercial DAC plants, once operational in the coming years.
