How Things Work: Direct Air Capture
Did you know that in 2023, the CO₂ concentration in the atmosphere exceeded 420ppm (parts per million) for the first time in human history? As a result, limiting global warming to a 1.5°C pathway has become extremely challenging.
One of the most scalable and permanent solutions to address this and achieve carbon reductions is Direct Air Capture (DAC), and we are working with our scientists and engineers to develop and optimise this exciting technology.
