Climeworks is capturing CO2 from air with the world's first commercial carbon removal technology. Our direct air capture plants remove CO2 from the atmosphere to supply to customers and to unlock a negative emissions future.
We built the world's first commercial direct air capture plant, removing 900 tonnes of CO2 from ambient air per year. Our plants capture atmospheric carbon with a filter, using mainly low-grade heat as an energy source.
The pure CO2 gas is sold to customers in key markets, including: energy, automotive and food and beverage. Customers utilise this atmospheric CO2 in carbonated drinks or for producing carbon-neutral hydrocarbon fuels and materials. By using Climeworks' CO2, our customers can reduce their emissions and lower production and transport costs. Our plants are modular, scalable and can be located independently of emission sources, allowing security of supply wherever there is atmospheric air.
