UN Climate Change Conference: Climeworks informs about negative emission technologies

To achieve climate targets, e.g. reducing global warming to 1.5°C, CO2 might have to be extracted from atmospheric air on a gigaton scale. There are only a few negative emission technologies with the potential to capture and store the necessary amounts of CO2 until 2100: In combination with storage technology Climeworks’ Direct Air Capture technology (DAC) is one of these. The implementation of the COP21 Paris agreement will be discussed at the Bonn UNFCCC Climate Change Conference (May 16th to 26th) – the Swiss cleantech startup Climeworks will be able to inform the members of the conference about the need for negative emission technologies and its DAC technology at a trade show booth.
