World's first commercial plant sucking CO2 from air launches in Switzerland

World's first commercial plant sucking CO2 from air launches in Switzerland

The world's first commercial plant to suck carbon dioxide out of the air will open today in Zurich in what its creators are claiming is a "historic moment" for negative emissions technology. The Swiss Direct Air Capture (DAC) plant, developed by ClimeWorks, is now up and running on the roof of a waste recovery site. Powered by waste heat from the facility, it is drawing out carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to be used by a nearby greenhouse run by German salad growers Gebrüder Meier Primanatura AG.
