We use powered fans to draw air into a collector the size of a shipping container. A highly selective filter captures the carbon dioxide, letting the clean air flow through.
Emission reductions are essential, but they're not enough.
Recent climate studies found that in order to achieve climate targets, we must not only reduce emissions, but also actively remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
We need more trees, but all the trees in the world won't solve the problem alone.
We don't have the space, and we don't have the time. Direct air capture is scalable and can remove CO₂ much more quickly. We need trees, and we urgently need direct air capture.
Climate scientists agree that scaling direct air capture will help us reach net zero emissions by 2050.
Direct air capture must remove between 5 and 30 billion tons of CO₂ annually to meet emissions targets. We're not there yet, but your subscription will help us scale up before it's too late.
"On a barren lava plateau in Iceland, a new facility is sucking in air and stashing the carbon dioxide in rock. The next step: Build 10,000 more."
"It is a straightforward chemical reaction: taking the carbon dioxide that is causing global warming out of the air and tucking it away where it can do little harm."
“Its 11 tons of carbon captured each day are the forerunner of an enterprise which, if models are right and pledges are adhered to, will grow a millionfold in the next half-century.”
- Francesca, Climate Pioneer
When you become a Climate Pioneer, you enable us to operate and construct large-scale direct air capture and storage so we can permanently remove CO₂ from the air. Scaling CO₂ removal capacity is urgently needed to achieve net zero global emissions. With your contribution, we can keep working toward this goal, and you can have an individual impact on the climate by removing CO₂ from the air.

And they're designed to run as efficiently as possible. A German university assessed our machines and found that they're 90% efficient. That means a typical Climeworks plant re-emits less than 10% of the carbon dioxide it captures. We're working to cut that number to only 4% in a few years.
We help leading companies reach their sustainability goals by removing past and present CO₂ emissions from the air.
Many companies aspire to go a step further by removing more CO₂ than they emit, and Climeworks can help toward this goal too. Join them today and help us achieve a global net zero before it’s too late.
