Carbon capture systems will inevitably be part of our future. They may be used to reduce the carbon footprint of existing processes, or just stand alone to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Either way, they will be essential to achieving carbon neutrality and net zero.
It is great to see the early commercial versions of these systems coming on line. This project, currently the largest in the world, will capture 4,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide each year. While there will undoubtedly be larger plants in the future, this is a great step in the right direction.
Orca is the first-of-its-kind plant that translates the vision of industrial-scale direct air capture and storage into reality.
