Re­duc­ing CO²

Bulletin - - Contents -

The earth is heat­ing up and the lev­els of CO2 in the at­mos­phere are ris­ing. The most sus­tain­able CLI­MATE CHANGE ac­tion would be to re­duce green­house gas emis­sions – or to fil­ter them out of the air. Zurich-based Clime­works has de­vel­oped Di­rect Air Cap­ture tech­nol­ogy for that very pur­pose. This spin-off of ETH Zurich em­ploys 60 peo­ple and has al­ready in­stalled fil­tra­tion sys­tems in Ice­land, Italy and Switzer­land. “Our goal is to fil­ter one per­cent of global emis­sions out of the at­mos­phere by 2025,” says Christoph Ge­bald, co-founder of Clime­works. “That would be equiv­a­lent to 300 mil­lion met­ric tons of CO2 a year.”
