The Swiss company Climeworks are running 30 DAC - Direct Air Capture - fans on the roof of this garbage incinerator in Hinwil outside Zurich. Founded in 2009 by Christoph Gebald and Jan Wurzbacher, the company has commercialized the modular carbon capture unit, each of which is capable of sucking up to 135 kilo of CO2 out of the air daily. The process is energy demanding, and the units in Hilwil get the power from the incinerator. In turn, the CO2 is pumped to neighboring greenhouses to accellerate the production of tomatoes and cucumbers.
