MIT Webinar: Affordable Direct Air Capture: Myth or Reality
Direct Air Capture (DAC) technologies extract carbon dioxide (CO2) directly from the atmosphere. Carbon removal could play a key role in the transition to a net-zero energy system in which the amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere is equivalent to the amount being removed. Because sectors such as aviation and heavy industry are difficult to decarbonize, carbon removal technologies can enable utilization of atmospheric CO2 (e.g. for synthetic fuel production) or long-term carbon storage. As the technology has yet to be demonstrated at large scale, the future cost of DAC and therefore its potential to support an economically feasible path to a net-zero economy is uncertain. Capture cost estimates are wide-ranging, from USD $50/t to USD $1,000/t. Our seminar seeks to explore the challenges and opportunities of DAC.
