Dopo un anno di ricerca e interviste, Akshat Rathi su Quartz fa il punto, in maniera approfondita, sullo stato delle tecnologie carbon capture e sulla loro importanza futura nel ridurre le emissioni di CO2:
Critics laughed at those pursuing a moonshot in “direct-air capture” only a decade ago. Now Climeworks is one of three startups—along with Carbon Engineering in Canada and Global Thermostat in the US—to have shown the technology is feasible. The Hellisheidi carbon-sucking machine is the second Climeworks has installed in 2017. If it continues to find the money, the startup hopes its installations will capture as much as 1% of annual global emissions by 2025, sequestering about 400 million metric tons of carbon dioxide per year.
