New DAC Technology Offers Capture Prices Under $100

Revolutionary Technology Brings Hope for Faster CO2 Removal: Achieving Cost Target of $150 per Ton Earlier Than Expected

New advancements in emerging technologies for CO2 removal are offering hope for achieving a crucial cost target of $150 per ton sooner than expected. This significant cost reduction could pave the way for widespread deployment of direct air capture (DAC) technology, which is currently estimated to cost anywhere from $400/ton to $1,000/ton or even higher, making them unaffordable for many potential buyers seeking to purchase CO2 removal credits (CDRs) to offset their emissions.

Experts have long emphasized the importance of bringing DAC costs below $150 per ton in order to promote widespread adoption of this technology. However, few anticipated that this price point could be achieved before 2030. The new breakthrough in emerging technologies for CO2 removal is providing a glimmer of hope that this crucial cost target can be met sooner than expected.

This breakthrough could have far-reaching implications for carbon mitigation efforts and the fight against climate change. If DAC becomes more affordable and accessible, it could enable businesses and individuals to take greater action towards reducing their carbon footprint and offsetting their emissions, ultimately leading to a more sustainable future. Additionally, the widespread deployment of DAC technology could help mitigate the worst effects of climate change by removing large quantities of CO2 directly from the air.
