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 utilize excess energy from the incinerator to run the collectors. In turn, the captured CO2 is used at a nearby commercial greenhouse to increase the crop yield and also delivered to a mineral water ma

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 utilize excess energy from the incinerator to run the collectors. In turn, the captured CO2 is used at a nearby commercial greenhouse to increase the crop yield and also delivered to a mineral water manufacturer. With the use of captured CO2, greenhouse food production has a potential to become important CO2 sequesters, absorbing up to 50 times more CO2 than natural forest.
