World’s largest carbon capture plant: Orca

Introduction

Taking captivity and air straight to the next level

Technology behind it

Carbon, after being captured, is mixed with water and pushed deeper into the ground as it slowly turns into a rock. The technology uses renewable energy from hydroelectric power plants. Direct air capture is still expensive. However, developers are developing ways to scale the set to allow more companies and consumers to reduce their carbon footprint. According to the International Energy Agency, today, our world has 15 airborne plants that capture more than 9,000 tons of carbon dioxide each year. In the US, Occidental Oil Company is also making the world’s largest air-conditioning facility capable of attracting up to 1 million tonnes of CO2 emissions per year near its Texas oil fields.

Construction

Conclusion

Carbon capture technology will play an essential role in the future of the planet. It will help us meet the objectives of climate neutrality and reduce the impact of climate change. We are currently under this category which is expected to proliferate in the coming years
