What is direct air capture?
Direct Air Capture (DAC) refers to the capture of carbon dioxide from the ambient air - sort of like a greenhouse gas dehumidifier. Once captured, the carbon dioxide can either be used directly (in greenhouses, sparkling water, etc), stored underground (where, under the proper rock formations, it can permanently transform into limestone), or turned into a whole slew of different products (biogasoline, concrete, cement, fertilizers, clothing, etc).
The most recent climate reports from the United Nations International Panel on Climate Change (UN IPCC), the National Academy of Sciences, and other key scientific bodies point to carbon removal technologies like DAC as critical to combatting the worst effects of climate change.
