Direct air capture (DAC) is a carbon dioxide removal technology able to separate CO2 directly from the air using an engineered system. Thanks to a broad set of innovative technologies the captured CO2 can then be turned into useful products such as chemicals, synthetic fuels and building materials.
Over the last years, DAC has undergone significant technical development, with different companies now operating in the market and prospects for significant upscale.
A recent study published in the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Energy & Environmental Science journal reviews the state-of-the-art to provide clear research challenges across the process technology, techno-economic and socio-political domains.
