CO2 capturing factories are a part of the green revolution which can save us from climate change. Technically feasible factories can capture CO2 from the air and turn it into useful products, creating more jobs around the globe. According to economic analysis geoengineering technology is inching closer to commercial viability. 

A few inspiring examples include:

  • CO2 factories in Italy and Canada capture carbon and turn it into carbon-neutral fuel. Currently, the plant in Italy can pull about 150 tons of carbon dioxide per year from the atmosphere. 
  • Climeworks is the first industrial air-capture factory in the world with the ultimate goal to remove CO2 from the air, counteract global warming, and reduce air pollution and its associated health risks. Their facility near Reykjavik scrubs CO2 from geothermal steam leaving Iceland’s Hellisheiði power plant and begins the process of securing it underground, where it reacts with basalt rocks to form stable new minerals.

"Highly scalable negative emission technologies are crucial if we are to stay below the 2-degree target (for global temperature rise) of the international community,"- Christoph Gebald, co-founder and managing director of Climeworks.
