Direct Air Capture Insight Brief

Capitalizing on the Defining Decade for Technology Development

Engineered technologies for carbon removal are in their early stages of maturity.

But the 2021 IPCC report indicates that we may need 2 –20 gigatons (Gt) per year of CO2 removal, requiring an all-of-the-above approach to the problem. Direct air capture, or DAC, is one such engineered solution that could provide an “insurance policy” for the climate.

In this insight brief, learn about opportunities for innovation and scaling that could reduce the cost of DAC by an order of magnitude to close to $50 per ton of CO2 removed.
