Revolutionary Direct Air Capture Technology Set to Transform CO2 Removal at Under $100 per Ton

New DAC Technology Offers Capture Prices Under $100

Direct air capture (DAC) technology is revolutionizing the process of removing CO2 directly from the air, with costs potentially dropping below $100 per ton. This significant cost reduction could pave the way for widespread deployment of this technology, making it more affordable for many potential buyers seeking to purchase CO2 removal credits (CDRs) to offset their emissions.

Currently, most DAC technologies are estimated to cost anywhere from $400/ton to $1,000/ton or even higher, making them unaffordable for many potential buyers. However, experts have long emphasized the importance of bringing DAC costs below $150 per ton in order to promote widespread adoption of this technology.

Recent advancements in emerging technologies for CO2 removal offer hope that this crucial cost target could be achieved sooner than expected. This breakthrough could have far-reaching implications for carbon mitigation efforts and the fight against climate change.
