Five reasons DAC is worth a premium compared with other carbon removal techniques


What is Direct Air Capture?

Direct Air Capture (DAC) is one way to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Using a broad variety of chemical and physical processes, DAC technologies extract CO2 from the ambient air – not point sources of emissions – and isolate it, after which the gas may be reused or sequestered in long-term storage. First developed decades ago in small scale air cleaning technology (on submarines and spacecrafts), DAC solutions can today be deployed at industrial levels, acting as a critical tool to address climate change and reduce atmospheric greenhouse gas levels safely and effectively.


How does DAC relate to my ESG and net-zero goals?

Direct Air Capture removes carbon from the atmosphere, offsetting emissions. Supporting carbon removal – or carbon-negative technology – including through the purchase of carbon credits, helps move businesses, individuals, or corporations toward carbon neutrality and more sustainable net-zero operations, especially as they work to wind down carbon-hungry aspects of their businesses.
